In 2008 O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 9 to 33 years in prison after being found guilty of multiple criminal counts including Conspiracy, Robbery, Burglary, Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Kidnapping with Use of a Deadly Weapon. Simpson's conspiracy charges were the result of his committing crimes in concert with other individuals. On May 13, 2013, Simpson returned to court requesting a new trial for the Conspiracy and other charges based upon a claim that his trial attorney was ineffective. The Court has yet to make a determination on this request for a new trial. But, during the evidentiary hearing on his petition for writ of habeas corpus, Simpson testified as to the 2007 events that led to his conviction for conspiracy, Robbery, Burglary, Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Kidnapping with Use of a Deadly Weapon.
Conspiracy itself is a charge that involves an agreement among multiple individuals to commit a criminal act. Conspiracy is rarely the only charge on a criminal complaint. Conspiracy is usually charged in connection with other potential criminal acts such as drug charges, theft offenses or
violent crimes, as evidenced by Simpson's multiple charges related to the 2007 incident. As Simpson's hefty 2008 sentence suggests, Conspiracy is a serious crime that can result in substantial terms of imprisonment.
