OJ Simpson is going to jail for a long long time. After one appeal after another Simpson’s case was finally heard by the Nevada Supreme Court, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. The court affirmed the lower court ruling finding Simpson guilty. Simpson was charged with conspiracy to commit a number of crimes, including: robbery, burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon, and multiple counts of first degree kidnapping. Conspiracy is a unique crime in that one need not actually commit the crime in order to be found guilty, notes a New York Criminal Lawyer. Rather, all that need be proven is that a person agreed with another person to commit a crime and then that one of those people took an action in furtherance of the crime. A jury found that Simpson had done so and he was convicted of conspiracy.
Simpson is most famous from his days as a star football player, famous actor, and of course from his mid-90s murder trial. Simpson was found not guilty at the time, a decision was raised the ire of many. The trial itself spawn much of today’s modern “court TV” as well and is considered a major moment in the 20th Century of the United States. At the time Simpson vowed to find the real killers. He then mostly played golf.
One of Simpson’s co-conspirators had his conviction reversed and a new trial has been ordered for the man, noted a New York Criminal Lawyer.
Simpson claimed that all he was doing was trying to retrieve his property, including family photos and heirlooms, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. Simpson’s attorney attempted to claim that the conviction was payback for Simpson’s prior not-guilty. The Supreme Court did not agree.
