The Juice is no longer on the loose

Not after a Big Gulp swiggin' Judge threw the book at him in his sentencing hearing today. He got 15 for kidnapping (parole eligible after 5 years) an open ended enhancement for using a gun (to be served consecutively) and another open ended consecutive sentence for burglary. I am not a lawyer, but it seems like about 10 years minimum for OJ.

I was shocked to see Ron Goldman's parents in the audience for the sentencing. Maybe that is why the Judge made a lengthy speech about how this sentence was exclusively for this case and had nothing to do with past history.

An NPR local reporter hinted that this judge makes a speech about everything that goes on in her courtroom, and lectures everyone who appears before her.

I've noticed that the Socratic method is far more popular among law professors than it is among judges.
