O.J. SIMPSON could have settled for a three year jail term but turned the offer down, according to a friend of the disgraced star.
The former American footballer-turned-actor was sentenced to at least 15 years in prison on Friday (05Dec08) for his part in a sports memorabilia heist at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last year (Sep07).
But the star's pal Thomas Scotto has claimed Simpson turned down a chance late in the trial to take a three year prison term - as he believed he would be found not guilty.
Scotto says, "O.J. and his sister told me the prosecution offered him a deal but he and his lawyers turned it down."
And Scotto admits the fallen star will now be ruing the decision after being given a much harsher punishment, adding, "He may have given it more serious consideration if he'd known what was coming."
