O.J. Simpson Reacts to Henry Ruggs’ Prison Sentence: ‘The Math is Not Adding Up’ | Video

*O.J. Simpson is weighing in on the Henry Ruggs’ ruling, saying “the math is not adding up” when it comes to Ruggs’ light prison sentence for killing a woman and her dog. 

A Las Vegas judge recently sentenced the former Raiders star, 24, to three to 10 years in prison for the 2021 death of Tina Tintor. Ruggs was driving over 155 MPH, intoxicated when he crashed into Tintor, 23, who was traveling with her dog. The former NFL player pleaded guilty in May to one felony count of driving under the influence resulting in death, and one count of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

“I know I went to college on a football scholarship but somehow this math is not adding up to me. You’re driving a car at roughly 160 miles per hour on a public street and end up killing a girl and her dog and you get three to ten years?”, O.J. asked his followers in a video posted to X (formally known as Twitter).

Ruggs apologized to the family of Tintor prior to his sentencing on Aug. 9. He told the court that he’s been searching to “find answers to explain my selfish behavior on that day.”

“I have no excuse and pray that accepting responsibility and my guilty plea can allow me to begin the healing process and to allow everyone involved to heal also,” Ruggs said.

In his Twitter video, Simpson compared Rugg’s case to his own 2008 conviction in connection with an armed robbery in Las Vegas.

“You go to a hotel room that you’re invited to to retrieve your own personal stolen property- property I now have because it was ruled to be mine by the state of California, and you get nine to 33 years? Same courthouse, same city, same state….I don’t know…somehow it does not add up to me,” Simpson said. 

Simpson’s original sentence in the armed robbery case was 33 years, with the possibility of parole after 9 years. In 2017, he was paroled.

Watch Simpson’s full remarks in the Twitter video above.

In the comments of the clip, many X users referenced his 1995 acquittal for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
