Four of O.J. Simpson's co-defendants who accepted plea bargains to testify against their pal were sentenced to probation yesterday in Las Vegas.
"You've got to be kidding me!" cried Bruce Fromong, one of the two memorabilia dealers whom Simpson and the others robbed.
But Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass wasn't kidding. The stern-faced judge lectured Michael McClinton, Walter Alexander, Charles Ehrlich and Charles Cashmore while accepting the prosecutors' sentencing recommendation. She gave them terms of probation ranging from 3 to 8 years.
The four men each pleaded guilty to lesser charges and testified about participating in Simpson's September, 2007 confrontation with Fromong and memorabilia dealer Alfred Beardsley in a Las Vegas hotel-casino.
Meanwhile, Simpson was transferred Monday to a Nevada state prison to begin serving his 9 - 33 year sentence for kidnaping, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy.
