O. J. Simpson - If Charged Under Wisconsin Law

Perhaps very similar to the laws of Nevada where O. J. Simpson was arrested on multiple felony counts for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, under Wisconsin law, O. J. would face felony charges.

Under Wisconsin law, a robbery charge is a felony. The felony classification is determined by the type of force used during the robbery. If a deadly weapon is used, the felony is a Class C; otherwise, it is a Class E.
