(Newser) – OJ Simpson is “in shock” over his conviction and the prospect of spending the rest of his life behind bars. “I can't believe I'm in here for this nothing incident,” he said. “He's strong. He's just in shock,” a friend told the New York Daily News. “His first concern is his kids,” who will receive Simpson’s $25,000-a-month NFL pension.
