It's OJ, All Over Again Former football star OJ Simpson has been acquitted of murder and convicted of wrongful death. Now he’s charged with ten felony counts, including kidnapping and murder. Reporters who covered the first two trials and lawyers who rode the case to fame on TV showed up in Las Vegas today to see Simpson released on bail for $125,000 dollars. It was a circus atmosphere including Marcia Clark , the prosecutor who failed to convict Simpson of killing his wife and her friend, Ron Goldman . Clark was covering the story today for “ Entertainment Tonight .” Photo Credit: Ethan Miller/Getty Images News
