However, after a lengthy televised trial, O.J. was acquitted after his lawyer, Johnnie Cochran, linked a poorly fitting glove to his innocence.

The controversial verdict caused uproar and Simpson was found liable in a civil suit in those killings and ordered to pay thirty three and a half million dollars. $500,000 was netted in an auction of Simpson's belongings, including his Heisman Trophy, and the cash went to Goldman's family.
