    He has spent more than enough time in prision for the crimes he was found guilty of. I wouldn't give him a new trial, but let him out. The sentence he received was about revenge for not getting him for murder and should have never happened.

    IF he was given a plea deal and not told about it, then he should be released assuming it met the time served requirement. I care more about the integrity of the system as a whole than any particular case.

    On a personal note, though, I won’t be losing any sleep worrying about this.

    Pretty much mirrors my feelings on this.

    It's way too easy for a convicted felon to say, "My attorney didn't tell me about a plea deal!!!" (Followed by wah-wah-wah.)

    If OJ Simpson, through his new attorney, can prove in a court of law that he wasn't told about any plea deal . . . if that attorney is disbarred and given jail time . . . then and only then should he either be given a new trial or allowed to take the deal that was offered.

    Why disbarred and jail time?
    Don't worry, kid, I'm going to do something here that will assure you get off with a much lighter sentence. The worse sentence you're going to get is the plea deal. We'll refuse the plea, take our chances with the trial, and, if your sentence is worse than your plea deal? You can say I never told you about it.

    I think he needs a new trial in order to have his sentence extended.
