OJ Simpson's lavish new life in Las Vegas 26 years after being accused of murder Former footballer OJ Simpson has built a swanky new life for himself in Las Vegas following his release from prison. OJ Simpson, 73, was born Orenthal James Simpson in in California. OJ gained fame as an American football star and, later, as an actor. He became the NFL's fastest player to gain 1, rushing. O.J. Simpson, in full Orenthal James Simpson, (born July 9, , San Francisco, California, U.S.), American collegiate and professional gridiron football player who was a premier running back known for his speed and elusiveness. His trial on murder charges in was one of the most celebrated criminal trials in American history. Simpson acquired the nickname "Juice" as a play on "O.J.", a common abbreviation for orange juice. "Juice" is also a colloquial synonym for electricity or electrical power, and hence a metaphor for any powerful entity; the Bills' offensive line at Simpson's peak was nicknamed " The Electric Company ".
Supreme Court received a message on the verdict during oral arguments , with the justices quietly passing the note to each other while listening to the attorney's presentation.
Congressmen canceled press conferences, with one telling reporters, "Not only would you not be here, but I wouldn't be here, either. After the verdict in favor of Simpson, most black people surveyed said they believed justice had been served, with most claiming that Simpson had been framed and some even suggesting that Mark Fuhrman was the actual killer.
In , FiveThirtyEight reported that most black people now think Simpson committed the murders. Shapiro admitted the defense played the "race card," "from the bottom of the deck ".
It was followed by a three-hour tour of Simpson's estate. Simpson was under guard by several officers but did not wear handcuffs; he waited outside the crime scene in and around an unmarked police car and was permitted to enter his house.
Simpson's defense team had switched out his photos of whites for blacks, including switching a picture of a nude Paula Barbieri Simpson's girlfriend at the time, who was white for a Norman Rockwell painting from Cochran's office.
Prosecutors had requested that Ito restrict the tour to only the crime scene for this exact reason, but Ito refused, and came under heavy criticism for allowing the defense to control the trial.
Critics of the jury's not-guilty verdict contended that the deliberation time was unduly short relative to the length of the trial.
Some said that the jurors, most of whom did not have any college education, did not understand the forensic evidence. Three jurors together wrote and published a book called Madam Foreman,  in which they described how their perception of police errors, not race, led to their verdict.
They said that they considered Darden to be a token black assigned to the case by the prosecutor's office.
In , Cochran wrote and published a book about the trial. It was titled Journey to Justice, and described his involvement in the case.
He criticized Bailey as a "loose cannon" and Cochran for bringing race into the trial. Clark published a book about the case titled Without a Doubt She concluded that nothing could have saved her case, given the defense's strategy of highlighting racial issues related to Simpson and the LAPD, and the predominance of blacks on the jury.
In Clark's opinion, the prosecution's factual evidence, particularly the DNA, should have easily convicted Simpson. That it did not, she says, attests to a judicial system compromised by issues of race and celebrity.
Darden published a book about the case called In Contempt He also describes his frustration with a "dysfunctional and uneducated jury" that dismissed Simpson's history of domestic violence as irrelevant and inability to comprehend the DNA evidence in the case.
Darden also describes his initial contact with Fuhrman and his suspicions that he is a racist and his feelings that the prosecution had been "kidnapped by a racist cop" whom they were unable to divorce themselves from.
It also details the candid factors behind Darden's controversial decision for Simpson to try on the infamous glove and the impact it had on the trial's outcome.
In , former Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Vincent Bugliosi wrote a book titled Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O.
Simpson Got Away with Murder. He contended that the note "reeked" of guilt and that the jury should have been allowed to see it.
He also noted that the jury was never informed about items found in the Bronco. The prosecution said that they felt these items of evidence would bring up emotional issues on Simpson's part that could harm their case, despite the fact that the items seemed as though they could be used for fleeing.
Bugliosi also said the prosecutors should have gone into more detail about Simpson's domestic abuse and presented evidence contrary to the defense's assertion that Simpson was a leader in the black community.
Bugliosi also criticized the prosecution for trying the murder in Los Angeles, rather than Santa Monica, and described the prosecution's closing statements as inadequate.
California courts barred peremptory challenges to jurors based on race in People v. Wheeler ,  years before the U. Supreme Court would do so in Batson v.
Defense forensic DNA expert Dr. Henry Lee published Blood Evidence: How DNA Is Revolutionizing The Way We Solve Crimes He devotes the last two chapters to explaining the arguments of Scheck and Neufeld against the DNA evidence in the Simpson case.
Lee notes that Scheck and Neufeld were skeptics of DNA evidence and only recently before the trial, in , accepted its validity and founded the Innocence Project.
Henry Lee or Dr. Edward Blake, considered Scheck and Neufeld's reasonable doubt theory about the blood evidence plausible. In hindsight, Dr.
Lee opines that Scheck and Neufeld's claim that "the blood evidence is only as good as the people collecting it" was an obfuscation tactic to conflate the validity of the evidence with the integrity of the LAPD and then attack the latter because both Scheck and Neufeld knew that the defense's forensic DNA experts reached the same conclusion as the prosecution: the mistakes made during evidence collection did not render the results unreliable.
He bases this on comments from jurors after the trial, some of which included claims that the blood at the crime scene that matched Simpson had "degraded" and could possibly have been from Simpson's children or from one of the officials who collected the evidence.
He attributes this misinterpretation to Scheck and Neufeld's deliberate obfuscation and deception about the reliability of the results.
After the trial, the jurors faced harsh criticism for doubting the DNA evidence while Scheck and Neufeld received praise.
Lee believes that the scathing criticism the jurors faced for doubting the DNA evidence based on the arguments Scheck and Neufeld made might have been the reason why they were the only two DNA experts from the criminal trial to decline to return for the subsequent civil trial to make those claims again.
When the trial began, all of the networks were getting these hate-mail letters because people's soap operas were being interrupted for the Simpson trial.
But then what happened was the people who liked soap operas got addicted to the Simpson trial. And they got really upset when the Simpson trial was over, and people would come up to me on the street and say, 'God, I loved your show.
The murders and trial — "the biggest story I have ever seen", said a producer of NBC's Today — received extensive media coverage from the very beginning; at least one instant book was proposed two hours after the bodies were found, and scheduled to publish only a few weeks later.
The nightly news broadcasts from the Big Three television networks gave more air time to the case than to the Bosnian War and the Oklahoma City bombing combined.
Participants in the case received much media coverage. While Cochran, Bailey and Dershowitz were already well-known, others like Kaelin became celebrities, and Resnick and Simpson's girlfriend Paula Barbieri appeared in Playboy.
Those involved in the trial followed their own media coverage; when Larry King appeared in the courtroom after a meeting with Ito, both Simpson and Clark praised King's talk show.
Interest in the case was worldwide; Russian president Boris Yeltsin 's first question to President Clinton when they met in was, "Do you think O.
The issue of whether to allow any video cameras into the courtroom was among the first issues Judge Ito had to decide, ultimately ruling that live camera coverage was warranted.
Dershowitz said that he believed that Ito, along with others related to the case such as Clark, Fuhrman and Kaelin, was influenced to some degree by the media presence and related publicity.
The trial was covered in 2, news segments from through Among the reporters who covered the trial daily from the courtroom, and a media area that was dubbed "Camp O.
Writers Dominick Dunne , Joe McGinniss and Joseph Bosco also had full-time seats in the courtroom. On June 27, , Time published a cover story, "An American Tragedy", with a photo of Simpson on the cover.
Time became the subject of a media scandal. After the publication of the photo drew widespread criticism of racist editorializing and yellow journalism , Time publicly apologized.
Charles Ogletree , a former criminal defense attorney and current professor at Harvard Law School , said in a interview for PBS ' Frontline that the best investigative reporting around the events and facts of the murder, and the evidence of the trial, was by the National Enquirer.
Despite Simpson's acquittal of the two murder charges, Police Chief Willie Williams indicated that he had no plans to reopen the investigation, saying of the acquittals, "It doesn't mean there's another murderer.
In the February issue of Esquire , Simpson was quoted as saying, "Let's say I committed this crime In April , Simpson did an interview with talk show host Ruby Wax.
In an apparent joke, Simpson showed up at her hotel room claiming to have a surprise for her, and suddenly waved a banana about his head, as if it were a knife, and pretended to stab Wax with it.
The footage soon made its way onto US television networks, causing outrage. In , Fred Goldman and Sharon Rufo, the parents of Ron Goldman, filed a suit against Simpson for wrongful death , while Brown's estate, represented by her father Lou Brown,  brought suit against Simpson in a "survivor suit.
Fuhrman was not called to testify, and Simpson was subpoenaed to testify on his own behalf. Simpson denied owning those shoes and said the photo was doctored like his mugshot on the cover of Time magazine, but E.
Flammer, the photographer who produced the originals, disproved that claim. Other pre photos of Simpson wearing Bruno Magli shoes were discovered as well.
Enyart took the items outside the courthouse where the auction was held, burned the certificate and jerseys, and smashed the trophies with a sledgehammer.
In November , ReganBooks announced a book ghostwritten by Pablo Fenjves based on interviews with Simpson titled If I Did It , an account which the publisher said was a hypothetical confession.
The book's release was planned to coincide with a Fox special featuring Simpson. CEO Rupert Murdoch , speaking at a press conference, stated: "I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project.
Later, the Goldman family was awarded rights to the book to satisfy part of the judgment against Simpson. The title of the book was changed to If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.
On the front cover of the book, the title was stylized with the word "If" to appear much smaller than those of "I Did It", and placed inside the "I", so unless looked at very closely, the title of the book reads "I Did It: Confessions of the Killer".
On March 11, , Fox broadcast Simpson's previously unaired interview with Regan, which was part of the book deal in a special titled O.
Simpson: The Lost Confession? Due to the change in phrasing, these comments were interpreted by many as being a form of confession, which stirred strong reactions in print media and the internet.
As a result of a incident in Las Vegas , Nevada regarding an attempt to steal materials Simpson claimed were stolen from him, Simpson was convicted in of multiple felonies including use of a deadly weapon to commit kidnapping, burglary and armed robbery, and sentenced to a minimum nine years to a maximum 33 years in prison.
His attempts to appeal the sentence were unsuccessful and he was detained at Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada. After a July 20, Nevada parole board hearing voting unanimously 4—0, Simpson was granted parole after a minimum nine-year sentence on the remaining counts for the Vegas robbery with Sunday, October 1, to be his release date from prison on parole.
Florida is one of the few U. Simpson has participated in two high-profile interviews regarding the case — one in with Ross Becker , which outlines Simpson's side of the story, as well as a guided tour of his estate, where evidence used in the trial was found.
The second took place in , on the tenth anniversary of the murders, with Katie Couric for NBC speaking to Simpson.
He had worked for that network as a sports commentator. In May , Mike Gilbert , a former agent and friend of Simpson, released his book How I Helped O.
Get Away with Murder ,  which details Simpson confessing to the killings to Gilbert. Simpson said, "If she hadn't opened that door with a knife in her hand In March , the LAPD announced a knife had been found in buried at Simpson's estate, when the buildings were razed.
A construction worker had given the knife to a police officer, who, believing the case had been closed, did not submit it as evidence at the time.
Forensic tests demonstrated that the knife was not related to the murder. The presence of Kardashian on Simpson's legal team, combined with the press coverage of the trial, was the catalyst for the ongoing popularity of the Kardashian family.
The murders continue to be the subject of research and speculation. Henry Lee who have reviewed the crime, trial, and evidence, that were addressed in the BBC documentary O.
The documentary, produced by Malcolm Brinkworth, claims that the police and prosecution had contaminated or planted evidence pointing to Simpson as the killer, and ignored exculpatory evidence.
Furthermore, it asserts that the state too hastily eliminated other possible suspects, including Simpson's elder son Jason, and individuals linked to the illegal drug trade, in which Brown, Goldman and Resnick allegedly participated.
Alternative theories of the murders, supposedly shared by Simpson, have suggested they were related to the Los Angeles drug trade,  and that Michael Nigg , a friend and co-worker of Goldman, was murdered as well.
Simpson himself has stated in numerous interviews that he believes the two had been killed over their involvement in drug dealing in the area, and that other murders at the time were carried out for the same reason.
Brown, Simpson believed, had been planning to open a restaurant using proceeds from cocaine sales. Mezzaluna was reportedly a nexus for drug trafficking in Brentwood.
Brett Cantor , part-owner of the Dragonfly nightclub in Hollywood , was found stabbed to death in his nearby home on July 30, ;  no suspects have ever been identified.
Michael Nigg, an aspiring actor and waiter at a Los Angeles restaurant, was shot and killed during an attempted robbery on September 8, , while withdrawing money from an ATM.
Since Nigg was a friend of Ronald Goldman, with whom he had worked, and seemed to live quite well for someone in his position, some reports have suggested that he was involved in drug trafficking.
Nigg's murder has been used to support theories that the murders of Goldman and O. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole the year before were drug-related as well.
In , several links between the killings and convicted murderer Glen Edward Rogers were alleged in the documentary film My Brother the Serial Killer , which was broadcast on Investigation Discovery ID.
Clay Rogers, Glen's brother, recounts Glen saying how he had met Brown and was "going to take her down" a few days before the murders happened in When the murder case was under process, Van Nuys ADA Lea D'Argostino came to know about a written statement from Glen revealing he had met Brown.
The information was forwarded to Simpson's prosecutors, but was ignored. Much later, in his years-long correspondence with criminal profiler Anthony Meolis, Glen also wrote about and created paintings pointing towards his involvement with the murders.
During a personal prison meeting between the two, Glen said he was hired by Simpson to break into Brown's house and steal some expensive jewelry, and that Simpson had told him: "you may have to kill the bitch".
In a filmed interview, Glen's brother Clay asserts that his brother confessed his involvement. Rogers would later speak to a criminal profiler about the Goldman—Simpson murders, providing details about the crime and remarking that he had been hired by O.
Simpson to steal a pair of earrings and potentially murder Nicole. Best selling author and journalist Stephen Singular was approached about the O.
Simpson case from an anonymous source within the LAPD. According to the source, Mark Fuhrman used a broken piece of fence to pick up one of the bloody gloves found at the Bundy crime scene and place it in a blue evidence bag.
Singular was also told by the source that Fuhrman had some sort of relationship with Nicole Brown Simpson, and an internal affairs investigation conducted by the LAPD later revealed Fuhrman was overheard bragging to other officers about being intimate with Brown and describing her breast augmentation.
The source also revealed that Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid EDTA would be found in some of the blood evidence if tested and that lab technicians had mishandled Simpson's blood samples.
Such theories have been refuted by Clark,  Brown's sister Tanya, and Fred Goldman who said, "I believe [O. The families of Brown and Goldman expressed anger at the premise of My Brother the Serial Killer , with both families dismissing the claims by the Rogers family.

Simpson also had a career-high receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns that season. In that game, Simpson rushed for a then-record yards on 29 attempts and scored two touchdowns.
Despite Simpson's performance, the Bills would lose the game 27— A low light that season came during a game against the Patriots a few weeks earlier when defensive end Mel Lunsford and several other Patriots defenders stuffed the superstar running back for no gain but as Simpson tried to continue driving forward Lunsford bodyslammed him to the ground.
Simpson got up and punched Lunsford which prompted Lunsford to swing back. Bills offensive lineman Reggie McKenzie then jumped on Lunsford's back but Lunsford bent down and flung McKenzie over his head and went back to swinging at Simpson before a melee of the two teams stopped the fight and ended up in a pile on the field.

Besides his acting career, Simpson worked as a commentator for Monday Night Football and The NFL on NBC. Simpson starred in the un-televised two-hour-long film pilot for Frogmen , an A-Team -like adventure series that Warner Bros.
Television completed in , a few months before the murders. NBC had not yet decided whether to order the series when Simpson's arrest cancelled the project.
While searching his home, the police obtained a videotaped copy of the pilot as well as the script and dailies. Although the prosecution investigated reports that Simpson, who played the leader of a group of former United States Navy SEALs , received "a fair amount of" military training—including use of a knife—for Frogmen , and there is a scene in which he holds a knife to the throat of a woman, this material was not introduced as evidence during the trial.
NBC executive Warren Littlefield said in July that the network would probably never air the pilot if Simpson were convicted; if he were acquitted, however, one television journalist speculated that " Frogmen would probably be on the air before the NBC peacock could unfurl its plume".

Simpson pelasi kaksi kautta 49ersissa. Joukkue ei menestynyt kummallakaan kaudella.
