In 1979 they divorced and in 1985 he married Nicole Brown. They had two children.
Nicole Brown had aggressive moods in which she physically attacked people; it took Mr. Simpson some effort to defend himself against her as he is a completely non-violent person. However in 1989 he was tried for violence against her and sentenced to community service. The verdict was based on the lies of police officers who hated him.
In 1992 they divorced. After that Nicole Brown became friends with Faye Resnick, who moved in very shady circles and introduced Nicole here. In July 1993 a friend of Resnick's was brutally murdered with a knife and she went in hiding for a while. She hid again when in June 1994 Nicole Brown was killed the same way, together with Ronald Goldman, a friend who came by to return a pair of glasses ... But it was decided straight away by the police, the prosecution and the media that there was to be no other suspect then Mr. Simpson. This was the beginning of the most horrible witch-hunt of a single person ever.
It took prosecutor Marcia Clark seven months to collect her "evidence";
in the nine months trial that followed this was all proved planted, fabricated,
made up or just nonsense. The police had picked up one of a pair of gloves from
the crime scene and thrown that in his garden; those gloves didn't even fit
him ... They fabricated a pair of blood-stained socks and said they found those in
his house ... and so on and so forth. Moreover, it was shown that Mr. Simpson had had
no opportunity to commit those crimes. The prosecution couldn't produce a story
that fitted the facts in which he did it; without such a story you don't really
have evidence ...
Since then thousands of people have tried to make up such a story; no one
succeeded. It makes you wonder whether it would be possible to scientifically
prove it impossible. To prove a hypothesis you must work out the alternative ...
After he was finally acquitted it took him another fifteen months to get his children back, who were living with the Browns. Right after that he was held liable for the murders in a civil case and sentenced to pay $32 million to the Brown's and the Goldman's.
For ten years he spent most of his time looking after his children. The witch-hunt went on, and time and again people tried to walk him into a trap and frame him for all kinds of crimes.
Then he was robbed. When he found out the robbers were people he had been treating as friends he went to their place with four other guys to retrieve his property. Of course no violence or threat was involved but this led to a show trial in which he was accused of armed robbery. The jury-candidates were carefully selected by the judge as to make a conviction sure and in December 2008 he was sent to prison for life.
