Washington, Dec 6 : Retired American football player O. J. Simpson has been sentenced to 33-year in prison for his role in an armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel.
Simpson, 61, was sentenced on December 5 in Las Vegas.
Judge Jackie Glass rejected his five-minute plea for leniency and for having made a stupid mistake, and his apology for the same.
“It was much more than stupidity,” CBS News quoted Glass as saying.
Simpson kept insisting that he was simply trying to retrieve sports memorabilia and other mementos, including his first wife''s wedding ring, from two dealers when he stormed the hotel room on September 13 last year.
