I did find a better researh area for Nevada and other States laws. Just type Cornell Law in your search engine or go to:
Since OJ was found guilty of Conspiracy to Kidnap, (Conspiracy is always a degree below commission of the actual offense) it would appear OJ is
eligible for probation on that. I couldn't find an exclusion that would apply to OJ on the 12 counts of armed robbery under Nevada law. It appears
to be the judges call. I would say that it's unusual to see probation in armed robbery cases, and there may be something out there precluding his
eligibility. These posted sites are better places to surf for free law available to the public though.
NRS 200.380 Definition; penalty.
1. Robbery is the unlawful taking of personal property from the person of another, or in his presence, against his will, by means of force or
violence or fear of injury, immediate or future, to his person or property, or the person or property of a member of his family, or of anyone in his
company at the time of the robbery. A taking is by means of force or fear if force or fear is used to:
(a) Obtain or retain possession of the property;
(b) Prevent or overcome resistance to the taking; or
(c) Facilitate escape.
Ê The degree of force used is immaterial if it is used to compel acquiescence to the taking of or escaping with the property. A taking constitutes
robbery whenever it appears that, although the taking was fully completed without the knowledge of the person from whom taken, such knowledge was
prevented by the use of force or fear.
2. A person who commits robbery is guilty of a category B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term
of not less than 2 years and a maximum term of not more than 15 years.

NRS 176A.100 Authority and discretion of court to suspend sentence and grant probation; persons eligible; factors considered; intensive
supervision; submission of report of presentence investigation.
1. Except as otherwise provided in this section and NRS 176A.110 and 176A.120, if a person is found guilty in a district court upon verdict or
(a) ... kidnapping in the first degree, sexual assault...an offense for which the suspension of sentence or the granting of probation is
expressly forbidden,...the court shall not suspend the execution of the sentence imposed or grant probation to the person.
This is a pretty dry post, but for those interested in the poential range of punishment, provides a glimpse into the future.
