OJ Survives Murder Rap, Bows To Casino Robbery
OJ Simpson survived perhaps the lowest point in his life when he was acquitted on murder charges. While most Americans believed he committed the murders, the jury was unable to return a guilty verdict.
Now, thirteen years later, Simpson was unable to avoid the grasp of the law for a second time. He was convicted of committing a robbery in a Las Vegas casino and is now facing the possibility of life in prison.
Not that casino crimes are considered a higher priority than murder, but it does seem as though the law is stricter when crimes are committed inside of casinos. Simpson now becomes evidence of that.
It used to be in the old days that casinos and their owners used to just take the law into their own hands. There are stories that exist of bodies disappearing out in the desert when crimes were committed inside of casinos.
In today's world, however, the law and the casinos have aligned themselves and crimes that take place inside casinos usually end up in convictions. part of the reason for that is the surveillance that is available to the authorities helping get convictions.
OJ Simpson escaped prison in the murder case, bur perhaps justice was served this week when his involvement in a casino robbery could put him in jail for the rest of his life.
