Deja Vu OJ

Robert Blake gets off and Scott Peterson is sentenced to death.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A jury acquitted tough-guy actor Robert Blake of murder Wednesday in the shooting death of his wife four years ago, a stunning verdict in a case that played out like pulp fiction.

The jury also acquitted Blake of one charge of trying to get someone to kill his wife, but deadlocked on a second solicitation charge.

The 71-year-old star of the 1970s detective drama "Baretta" dropped his head, trembled with emotion, and let out several deep breaths after the verdict was read.

The jury of seven men and five women delivered the verdicts on its ninth day of deliberations, following a trial with a cast a characters that included two Hollywood stuntmen who said Blake tried to get them to bump off his wife.


Jury nullification I would guess. Have you met OJ?


REDWOOD CITY, California (CNN) -- Members of the jury that convicted Scott Peterson of killing his pregnant wife, Laci, and their unborn son attended the sentencing Wednesday out of what some of them said was a need for closure.

San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Alfred Delucchi followed the jury's recommendation from November, sentencing Scott Peterson to die by lethal injection.


Okay he just seems like selfish scum. He could've just divorced her.
