Who doesn't know about O.J. Simpson? Have you been living under a rock?
If the answer is yes, then let me recap some stuff for you.
In 1994, O.J. Simpson was alleged to have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. There were a lot of reasons to believe he did kill them, and these are those reasons.
Simpson's bloody finger prints were found in the home, and other DNA evidence was found around the home, including blood inside the now discontinued Ford Bronco O.J. was driving. The blood found in the car contained both O.J.'s blood, as well as the blood of the victims...so there's that.
The Car Chase
O.J. Simpson fled from cops in his white Ford Bronco for HOURS. And it was all caught on tape. Why would he do that if he was innocent?
Change of Alibi
YOU get an alibi! And YOU get an alibi! O.J. Simpson claimed he was sleeping at the time of the murder. Then he claimed he was hitting golf balls outside his home. THEN he claimed a neighbor's housekeeper saw him parked in his car outside his house at the time of the murder. Are thee 3 O.J. Simpson's, perhaps? Or 3 stories to try and cover up the real truth?
O.J. Simpson was a scorned lover, and there's evidence to prove it. Nicole Simpson had called 911 on numerous occasions to report jealous rages, stalking, hitting, and verbal degradation. Does this not sound like someone who is capable of murder if his now ex-wife is seeing other people?
He Literally Wrote A Book About It
O.J. Simpson wrote a pretty telling book, called "If I Did It." Seriously. The entire book was a hypothetical detail-for-detail account of just how he would have murdered those people.
Here is an actual excerpt, referencing the famous moment when he was asked to try on the alleged gloves used in the murder and they didn't fit, which was a huge breakthrough in the case.
"If I had actually done it... I would have brought my good gloves that day. I would have thought it was shame they shrunk when I left them out on the patio, but I would have brought them just the same. They were my lucky gloves, and I would have needed them cause I was going to stab my slut of a wife... hypothetically."
Hypothetically, it sounds like someone who is definitely guilty.
O.J. Simpson was acquitted in 1995, and was deemed innocent in the murder of both Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. However, in 2008, O.J. Simpson was given up to 33 years in prison for his involvement in an unrelated robbery. 33 years is the maximum possible sentence for that particular crime.
Now, just 8 years into that sentence, O.J. Simpson could be walking free.

On July 20, 2017, O.J. Simpson had a parole hearing. If granted, Simpson would be walking free as early as October of this year.
Simpson, who turned 70 years old on July 9th, faced his parole board via video conference from his medium-security prison, Lovelock Correctional Center, 90 miles northeast of Reno, Nevada.
O.J. Simpson's attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, was with his client during his videoconference, and says Mr. Simpson has no desire to be in the public eye after his potential release.
"If he's able to get parole, my prediction is he's going to want to live a quiet life," LaVergne said.
Nevada defense attorney Dan Hill says O.J. Simpson had a high chance of being granted parole.
"Simpson's age, the fact that he was given parole on the first sentencing batch, weigh in his favor. So does the fact that he was by all accounts a model prisoner, as does any acceptance of responsibility for his actions," Hill stated.
As of July 20th, 2017 a decision was made to grant O.J. Simpson parole. He will be released on October 1st, 2017 unless he violates any conditions while still incarcerated.
"I've always thought I've been pretty good with people and I've basically have spent a conflict-free life," Simpson said during his hearing. "At any event, um, I'm no danger to pull a gun on anybody, I never have in my life, I've never been accused of it in my life, nobody's ever accused me of pulling any weapon on them, and [robbery victim] Bruce [Fromong], knows that I would never do that, I never have."
