Twelve people in California should have said this to O.J. Simpson thirteen years ago, but twelve Nevadans got around to it eventually today. What a Nevada jury finally said boiled down to one word: “guilty.” An added bonus: they also got around to saying it eleven additional times immediately afterward. (Via Captain Ed.)
Fox livecast the verdict:
O.J. was immediately hustled back off to jail, pending sentencing on December 5. He faces a sentence as stiff as life in prison (long odds on it, but hope springs eternal). O.J.’s media agnomen of the last thirteen years, “celebrity in exile,” is about to take on a whole new meaning.
(No word on reaction to the guilty verdict from the families of Ron Goldman or Nicole Brown. Goldman’s father Fred said before the verdict that he’d been following the trial “only generally,” though he did add, “At the absolute least, I’d like to see him in jail.”)
