About our OJ Simpson news

Latest news on O.J. Simpson, providing comprehensive coverage of his death, football legacy, the murder trial that gripped the nation, his later robbery conviction, and the lasting impact of his story.

O.J. Simpson, a former NFL superstar, actor, and controversial figure, died on 10 April 2024 at the age of 76 following a battle with prostate cancer. Simpson's remarkable football career included winning the Heisman Trophy in 1968, being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985, and setting numerous NFL records as a running back for the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers.

However, Simpson's legacy was forever altered by the highly publicised trial in which he was accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in June 1994. The "Trial of the Century" captivated the nation, ultimately resulting in Simpson's acquittal in October 1995. The victims' families later filed a civil lawsuit, and in February 1997, a jury found Simpson liable for the deaths, awarding $33.5 million in damages.

In September 2007, Simpson faced new legal troubles when he was arrested for armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas. In 2008, he was convicted and sentenced to 33 years in prison, with a minimum of nine years without parole. Simpson served his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada before being granted parole in July 2017 and released in October of the same year. His parole ended in December 2021.

Throughout his life, Simpson's story intersected with issues of race, celebrity, and the criminal justice system in America. His trial and its outcome sparked national debates and exposed deep racial divides. Even after his conviction and imprisonment for robbery, Simpson remained a subject of fascination, with documentaries, TV series, and films exploring his rise and fall.

As the world reflects on O.J. Simpson's complex legacy following his death, the NewsNow feed continues to provide up-to-date coverage from reliable sources. From tributes to his football achievements to re-examinations of the murder trial and its lasting impact, this feed offers a comprehensive look at the life and times of one of the most infamous figures in recent American history.
