O.J. Simpson Sentenced To At Least 15 Years In Prison

Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass has sentenced O.J. Simpson on 10 criminal counts in which he can serve up to 33 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole when he serves at least 9 years.

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 Judge Glass that he was "sorry and confused" before going into a rambling and emotional 5-minute declaration.

"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.
