Justice has finally caught up with the notorious former actor and sports star OJ Simpson. He was sent to prison for a total of 33 years after being found guilty of kidnapping and armed robbery.
Simpson, and his accomplice, Clarence Stewart, were part of a gang who kidnapped two sports memorabilia dealers as well as stealing items linking to his illustrious sporting career, in Las Vegas in 2007.
It comes around 13 years after he was cleared of the murder of former wife Nicole and friend Ronald Goldman.
No disrespect, but even Simpson couldn’t get himself out of this one. There will be many commentators who will argue that he got sent down because he is black, but I don’t believe that. He knew that when he committed the crime, he knew he would have to do the time eventually. It is still argued today that he should have gone down for Nicole’s murder. His imprisonment was the moment that the claws of justice finally caught up with him.
