O.J. Simpson's Plea Speech

As you probably know by now, O.J. Simpson was sentenced for what could be 33 years in prison today. Just before he heard the sentence from Judge Jackie Glass, Simpson made a plea for leniency that made no sense.

He spent five minutes choking back tears as he begged for mercy. It sounded like a desperate man at the end of his rope. While he repeatedly said he was sorry for what happened in September 2007, he also tried to explain why he did it and that he didn't mean for it to go that far.

Obviously the judge wasn't buying it. Not only did she throw the book at Simpson, she even said she found him both "arrogant" and "ignorant".

"When you take a gun with you and you take men with you in a show of force, that is not just a 'Hey, give me my stuff back.' That's something else and that's what happened here," the judge said.
