Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- O.J. Simpson has been fighting for his innocence ever since being accused of a robbery in Las Vegas at Palace Station.
The robbery took place in September 2007 and it took more than a year for the case to come to trial.
It didn't take long for a jury to convict him though. The jury deliberated only 14 hours before returning their guilty verdict.
Ironically, the verdict came 13 years to the day after a Los Angeles jury acquitted him of murdering ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and friend Ron Goldman.
The man who stood trial and was convicted along with O.J. Simpson -- C.J. Stewart -- served a few years behind bars before the Nevada Supreme Court overturned his conviction.
Another man, Charles Cashmore, took a plea deal and was given probation in exchange for his testimony.
Cashmore had another encounter with the law back in 2009 after being busted for meth. He was given a warning and sent to rehab.
Three other men arrested that night in 2007 also took plea deals and testified against Simpson.
