Today, October 3, O.J. It marks 25 years since Simpson was proven not guilty of murdering his estranged wife Nicole Brown.
The so-called trial of this century lasted nine months, but the arbitral tribunal found that Simpson was not guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman within four hours.
The verdict was read out on October 3, 1995, but in subsequent years, several judges have spoken out about the reasons for Simpson’s release, examining events over the past two decades.
The test was thrown back at JeetGeest in 2016 in the award-winning FX series The People Vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.
“If the glove does not match, you must release it.” – John Cochrane’s now infamous words came to define an investigation that was entirely contextualized by racial relations in the United States at the time.
The judges had a difficult time during the trial, spending eight and a half months alone and under intense media scrutiny. Judge Lance Edov’s 12 out of 12 people, including 10 women and two men of different races, voted in favor of Simpson’s release.
At a news conference the day after the trial, juror Brenda Moran, CNN: “In plain English, the glove does not match.”
Moran also dismissed domestic abuse claims against Simpson, saying it was “a murder case, not a domestic abuse trial” and that focusing on those claims was “a waste of time”.
David A., one of the arbitrators. Altana said The New York Times Report Baltimore Sun. He pleaded not guilty because he said “things were not included” in relation to the evidence presented in court. He said he could “sleep at night, no problem.”
A four-night special trial was released in 2017 shortly after Simpson was granted parole after serving time in prison for a 2007 robbery.
The jury speaks One arbitrator, Yolanda Crawford, examined the trial from the point of view of the arbitral tribunal, recalling the moment when Simpson tried on the glove.
“It may be the way he handled his hands, I don’t know,” Crawford said. “But I saw [fellow juror] Christopher Dorton, I was like, I can’t believe you fell for it. At the time, I was like, what can you do? This does not seem to apply. “
“This is one of many, many mistakes,” Dorton admitted.
The other person on the jury was Lionel Krier, who said, “It’s rubbish, rubbish out.”
Speaks Los Angeles Times (for a buzz) The day after the verdict was handed down, Cryer said: “We felt there was a lot of potential for contamination of evidence, mixing of samples or storage together.”
Krieer is remembered for raising his fist in unison with Simpson when the verdict was handed down.
In it, he told the LA Times: “It was like a ‘right’ for you, Mr. Simpson. Go on with your life. Have your kids. Be happy, close your life a little.”
