The OJ Simpson Verdict, 20 Years Later

Hosted by

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since a jury acquitted Heisman Trophy-winning-football player-turned-TV and movie star OJ Simpson of murdering his wife, Nicole Brown-Simpson and a friend at their Brentwood home. The jury’s decision to not convict OJ sent ripples across the country, with some people believing a great injustice had been done, while others saying OJ was set up and deserved to have been set free. KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis spoke with veteran Associated Press courts reporter Linda Deutsch, who covered the OJ trial. He also spoke with Keith Szarabajka, director of the new play “Watching OJ,” and attorney Brian Dunn, who worked with the late Johnnie Cochran, OJ’s defense lawyer.
