Miami, Florida (AP) — O.J. Simpson's daughter was sentenced today to 50 hours of community service in a deal with prosecutors that stemmed from a confrontation with police during a fight outside a prep school basketball game.
Twenty-year-old Sydney Simpson did not appear in court, but her lawyer accepted the deal on her behalf.
Simpson's daughter was arrested in January 2005 when police said she repeatedly yelled profanities at officers called to Ransom Everglades School to stop the fight after a boys' varsity basketball game against Gulliver Prep. Simpson was then 19. She already had graduated from Gulliver at the time.
Police say that while she was being taken into custody, she slapped an officer's hand.
