O.J. Simpson awaits his sentencing in a Las Vegas Courtroom on Friday, December 5, 2008.
Update: Judge sentences O.J. Simpson to at least 6 years in prison for Las Vegas hotel armed robbery.
LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson has apologized to the judge at his
sentencing hearing and says he didn't mean to steal from anybody
when he tried to retrieve memorabilia.
Simpson made his statement before sentencing Friday in his armed
robber case in a soft voice that was somewhat hoarse.
He appeared ready to break down in tears as he told Clark County
District Court Judge Jackie Glass that he was "sorry and
confused" before going into a rambling and emotional 5-minute
"I didn't want to steal anything from anyone ... I'm sorry,
sorry," he said.
Judge Glass ruled before sentencing that Simpson cannot be freed
on bail pending possible appeal.
