OJ and the Law:

_ Sept. 14, 2007: O.J. Simpson was under investigation in an alleged armed robbery at a casino hotel room involving sports memorabilia, but the former football star denied breaking into the room or carrying a weapon. Simpson told The Associated Press he went to the room to get memorabilia that was stolen from him.

_ July 4, 2005: A neighbor who went to O.J. Simpson's suburban Miami home to help jump start his girlfriend's car ended up calling police to report a fight. Police showed up, but no charges were filed.

_ March 8, 2004: Satellite television network DirecTV Inc. accused O.J. Simpson in Miami federal court of using illegal electronic devices to pirate its broadcast signals. The El Segundo, California-based company later won a US$25,000 judgment and Simpson was ordered to pay US$33,678 in attorneys' fees and costs.

_ Jan. 18, 2003: Police said they arrived at O.J. Simpson's Florida home after his teenage daughter placed an emotional 911 call following an argument with her father. Sydney Simpson, then 17, was crying when she asked police to assist in what she termed "an abuse thing." When they arrived, the teen said she and her father got into an argument over family issues. No charges were filed.

Nov. 22, 2002: O.J. Simpson paid a US$130 fine for speeding through a Florida manatee zone in a 30-foot (9-meter) powerboat on the Fourth of July (U.S. Independence Day). An arrest warrant was briefly issued for the former football star.

_ Oct. 24, 2001: O.J. Simpson was cleared of all charges in a Florida case involving an alleged road-rage incident.

_ Oct. 3, 1995: O.J. Simpson acquitted of murdering ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. He was later found liable for their deaths in a civil case and ordered to pay US$33.5 million.

Well, when you found not guilty your not guilty...
Lot of the things he has run into trouble with he paid a fine or no charges were brought.
Its not just him. I've known quite a few scoundrels that commit crime after crime, but their neighbors, and walk away from court with little if any punishment.
He just ends up on tv when he does it.
I recall when he beat the murder charge. I was in a college rec area with a big screen TV and of course there must of been two hundred or more people there watching. A lot of them broke out in a cheer when the verdict came back. But, the bigges surprise came when one of the very few black men in that room said to me "God knows who did the murders and some day that person will have to face him".
Sounds good to me.

The man was innocent - cleared by a US jury. Perhaps we should open a latter day Warren Commission?:mrgreen:

He was not "cleared," stevesman... He was found "not guilty" (vastly different from being innocent), and that was only because his attorneys managed to have some very critical evidence excluded: his blood - along with that of Nicole & Goodman - was found in his vehicle. Had the jury been given that evidence, they'd be frying juice in California.:evil:

In Scotland we have a "not proven" verdict too, it's not the best of decisions, has been called the Bastard verdict, but somehow sits fine with most of us, Simpson, like the rest of us he meets his maker one day on beded knee, Thomas Carlyle said..Let there be no doubt, there will always be justice.. recall the Simpson trial so clearly, was televised on TV in UK..when he wheeled out the Lawyers who cared less about the judicial process than the wealth it's abuse brings them..most decent peoples heads slumped to some degree that day he was found not guilty, personally lost a lot of faith in Jury trial that day...be interesting to see the latest Celebrity in the mire, Spector makes out, don't mind saying I believe he is guilty as Hell..what chance of him walking?

I do believe the US has a "nolo contende" - I choose not to contend the case, as in Spiro T Agnew in 1973.

Any Yank lawyers out there?8)
