O.J. Simpson was found not guilty in criminal court of killing his ex-wife and her male friend in a verdict that many people felt was wrong. Then in a civil case for wrongful death filed against him the jury found him liable for the deaths. He managed to stay out of jail for a while, but then was arrested for armed robbery and kidnapping in La Vegas. He was found guilty and spent nine years in jail.
Now he is free on parole and is already seeking to cash in on his criminal past. It is reported that he has hired an agent to negotiate interviews with major networks for an asking price between $3 million and $5 million. This is disgusting for many people, but O.J. seems determined to prove that crime does pay.
