I have more respect for a man who lets me know where he stands, even if he's wrong. than the one who comes up like an angel and is nothing but a devil.

Did You Know . . .?

On this day in 1994, after a dramatic flight from justice witnessed by millions on live television, former football star and actor O.J. Simpson surrendered outside his Rockingham estate to Los Angeles police. The police charged him with the June 12 double-murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald L. Goldman. Although the evidence appeared to be pointing almost indisputably toward Simpson's guilt, on October 3, 1995, the jury of nine African Americans, two whites, and one Hispanic took just four hours of deliberation to reach their verdict of not guilty on all charges.

In 2007, Simpson ran into legal problems once again when he was arrested for breaking into a Las Vegas hotel room and taking sports memorabilia, which he claimed had been stolen from him, at gunpoint. On October 3, 2008, he was found guilty of 12 charges related to the incident, including armed robbery and kidnapping, and sentenced to 33 years in prison.
