Question:
Maybe Las Vegas or the number 13 is not lucky for everyone . . . As you have probably heard, the O.J. Simpson trial has come to an end here in Las Vegas and the results were the jury found him guilty on all charges: two counts of first degree kidnapping; two counts of armed robbery; two counts of assault with a deadly weapon; two counts of coercion with a deadly weapon; burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit a crime, kidnapping and robbery. The verdict took the jury 13 hours to reach, this case concluded exactly 13 years from O.J.’s other famous trial, and it took 13 days in court to conclude the trial, therefore 13 may not be O.J. Simpson’s favorite number. On December 5, 2008, he will be sentenced and that brings us to this week’s Reader Poll question . . . How long do you think O.J. Simpson should be sent to prison? What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

Please, send that former star, former possible murderer to jail for ever.  Gloria H.  Chicago Illinois

I personally do not care what length of sentence he receives as long as it keeps him out of the public eye and away from Las Vegas highlights.  Vegas is famous for so many things we dont need a has been football player drag our great city into robbery / kid napping trials.  William S.  Las Vegas, NV

Life without parole, which is where he should have been in the first place!  Ann Londonderry, NH

13 years to keep the stars in line.  Richard Delgado  Las Vegas, NV

It may be poetic justice, but the case stunk to high Heaven. The main witness on tape says he will say anything for the right amount of money. The police wouldn't recover the disputed property, so I guess you can't recover it yourself. Greg Plagmann Palm Bay, FL

1300 years!! It's about time Karma caught up with this scumbag.  He doesn't deserve to walk free ever again.  Bill McDonough  Boston, MA

I think OJ should be sent to prison for whatever a midlevel time is for the crimes he committed in Las Vegas. I really think the kidnapping charge was a reach.  To be perfectly fair, I thought he should have been convicted in his prior murder trial, but I don't think he should be convicted for murder in this trial.  Laine Wightman  Las Vegas, NV

25 years would be sufficient, with No opportunity for parole.  Would certainly let potential criminals know that "No Guns In Las Vegas" is the Law!   Ray Duane  N Las Vegas,

13 years.  jim miller  worcester ma

I think it would only be fair that O.J. be sentenced according to the guidelines of the Law and Statutes of the State of Nevada. Nothng more nothing less.  Samuel Chen

Life.  Tim Grooters   Urbandale, Ia

I think he should get life in prison.  carol  azle,texas

LIFE ! He was in trouble with the law before. He thinks he can play game with everyone. It's time some one put him in his place.  Alan  Sheboygan, Wi

Oj has got away with a lot according to some people. But celebertie or not he recived a fair trial and was convictied by a jury of his peers. But what makes him so special do you think if any of us would have done the same thing it would have only taken 2 days and 2 hours to convict I am sick and tired of celeberties getting special treatment walking away with a slap on the wrist when any of us would go to jail.  Daniel Hoffman Logan Utah

OJ-OJ-OJ...This time you really screwed yourself over by committing something as stupid as this,You got away with Murder in 94',you should have learned from that to control your Thug mentality, Now you're going to get Life in Sin City were hopefully they wont treat you like a celebrity, hey-You rolled the dice and came-up Snake-Eyes, hope you rot in
jail where you should have been since 1994.  John  Los Angeles, Ca.

I think he should get :10 years yach for the two kidnapping,10 years each for each count of armed robbery,10 years for each count of assult with a deadly weapon,5 years each for the two counts of coercion, 5 years for the burlary charge, and 10 for the others. The proble is, what ever he gets, the court will probley run all the tie together. They should
run the time wild. When one sentenced is over, the next one will start. But they won't do that. I'll bet you.  Stephen Goodwin Sedalia,mo

maxium amount allowed.  Dee  Alpine,Ca.

A ten year sentence seems about right. It sends a strong message, but doesn't excessively punish him. He would probably get out with good behavoir in 3-5 years. that is a long time for a 61 year old man. Eric Rowley  Las Vegas, NV

he needs to service 20 years.  garj smith  so. bend, in

He should be jailed for the rest of his life. He took lives and the courts should be able to take his. He screwed his life up when he destroyed two people and their families, so the rest of his life will always be lived in a shadow of evil. No matter what he does it will never
be right, it will always have an evil side to it.  Rose Marie Litwin  Lethbridge Canada

I think O.J. should stay in prison until he shrivels up and blows away. In prison, room service will take on a whole new meaning. Maybe he can sell his revered Heisman trophy for protection. Eda Risk  Wyandotte, MI

13 years for each person he kidnapped (excuse me, killed 13 years ago) with no chance for early parole. C.L.  Audubon, PA

This time the glove did fit and the vote was to convict. The time sentanced to serve should also be forwith. Maximim time for the crime, anything less would be sublime. Now he can think while in the clink that life isn't rosey not even pink. So as they say, " You get what you give " a new place to live. First time you got a free ride and now you can't hide. Now who would predict a fair and just verdict? Enjoy... Chuck  Tucson, Arizona
