Remember O.J Simpson? He Is Getting Out Of Jail Soon

 

O.J simpson was undoubtedly very popular during his time, once known as one of the most-famous running backs in football history.

However Simpson gained negative popularity on June 12, 1994. On that day, Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman were found stabbed to death at her Los Angeles condominium.

The O.J simpson case is by far the most followed case in America till date, kind of what the Oscar Pistorius case became in Africa.

Simpson was charged with the murders, but acquitted of all the criminal charges in a televised case that transfixed the nation. He later lost a wrongful death civil suit brought against him by their families in 1997.

On Oct. 3, 1995, the “Trial of the Century” ended with Simpson’s acquittal, with 150 million people tuning in for the verdict, making it one of the most watched events in television history.

Even though O.J. Simpson, now 68, was acquitted for the murders of Brown Simpson in 2006, Simpson created an uproar when he announced plans for a book titled, “If I Did It,” a hypothetical telling of the murders. Public outrage led to the cancellation of the book’s publication, but not before some copies were leaked online.

The next year, a Florida court gave the rights to the book to the Goldman family as part of the civil case against Simpson. A commentary by the Goldman family titled “He Did It” was added and the word “If” was made very small in the title, making it appear to be “I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.” It was published in September 2007.

He was arrested in September 2007 during a botched robbery in Las Vegas when he led a group of men into a hotel and casino to steal his own sports memorabilia at gunpoint.

He was charged with a number of felony counts, including kidnapping and armed robbery. He was found guilty and sentenced to 33 years in prison. He is serving his time at Lovelock Correctional Facility in Nevada.

Simpson will be eligible for parole in October 2017 and October seems to be just around the corner.
