From O.J. Simpson to Christian Bale

 - Oct 4, 2008
O.J. Simpson has made headlines this weekend for his robbery conviction, but he isn't the only celebrity who's had trouble staying on the straight and narrow. Whether they've made headlines for assaulting the paparazzi, like Kanye West, or for bashing each other, like Pamela Anderson, these famous faces have certainly had a hard time playing nice.

It's O.J. Simpson's robbery conviction that's held media attention captive over the last day or so, however. Thirteen years to the day after O.J. Simpson was acquitted for the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, Simpson was convicted for all 12 of the robbery counts with which he was charged.

The robbery stemmed from a six-minute confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers. O.J. Simpson was cast as the mastermind of the affair by the prosecution team and now faces a life sentence. O.J. Simpson's sentencing will be on December 5.
