Simpson Codefendants Avoid Prison

Four of O.J. Simpson’s accomplices in the 2007 robbery at a Las Vegas hotel were given suspended sentences Tuesday by Nevada District Judge Jackie Glass.

The four — Charles Cashmore, Charles Erlich, Michael McClinton and Walter Alexander — all turned on Simpson and cooperated in the case against him.

Simpson was sentenced last week to at least nine and as many as 33 years in prison in the case. Glass called him “arrogant” and “ignorant.”
