A US federal judge in Miami has ordered former football superstar OJ Simpson to pay a US$25,000 ($33089) fine to the satellite television firm DirecTV for using unauthorized devices to receive its programming.

In December 2001, police and a DirecTV representative entered Simpson's home in Miami, after receiving information indicating that he had been receiving the satellite company's signal without paying for the service.
Once inside the home, the DirecTV representative found devices that were "specifically designed to assist in the unauthorized decryption of DirecTV satellite programming," according to the complaint filed in court.

Simpson, for his part, insisted that he had not stolen the company's signal, and pointed out that the television had not been turned on when police entered his home.

But the judge found that the firm had successfully demonstrated that the only purpose of the devices found in Simpson's home was to access the DirecTV signal, and ordered him to pay the fine to the company, plus interest.

I think we should stop picking on Orenthal so much, afterall he might be slated for an eternity in hell. I say let him enjoy this world to the fullest.

He's been framed:

This obviously shows no probable cause for the entry. If the set does not emit, you must acquit! This is an outrage! DirecTV is only doing this for publicity. Their sales are low and they're looking for a scapegoat. There's too much violence in the media! It's the Japanese, they're buying out everything!
