25 years ago today, a football star and actor O.J. Simpson was tried for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson (his second wife), and her friend Ronald Goldman. Both of their bodies were found outside of her house. Simpson, astonishing to most, was found not guilty after his 8 month trial. This was because of errors made by the investigators of this crime, therefore, the evidence they accused to be in relation to Simpson could not be considered credible.

Though Simpson was found not guilty in this case, he was arrested on a different case. Simpson was guilty of “10 charges related to a gunpoint robbery at the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas” (People.com). He was sentenced for 9 years in prison, but has been on parole since 2017.
