Even After His Acquittal, O.J. Simpson Couldn't Stay Out of Trouble
When O.J. Simpson was found not guilty in the murder of his ex-wife, it was not his final time in court.
Following the trial, Simpson relocated to Florida. It is believed he moved after he was ordered to pay $33 million to the family of Ronald Goldman after a judgement handed down in his civil trial.
Time after time, police were called in to his new home to settle disputes between Simpson and his girlfriend, Christie Prody.
In 1999, two years after the civil trial, Simpson made a 911 call to report a woman, reportedly Prody, driving around town high on drugs. But he later changed his story.
No charges were filed. Then a few months later, police were called again, after Prody allegedly attacked Simpson in a hotel lobby. After the cops left, Simpson again denied everything and Prody was not charged.
Later that year, it was Prody who called the cops claiming the former Buffalo Bills star had broken into her house. No charges were filed.
In 2000, Prody talked to IE about her relationship with Simpson.
"There is a very strange relationship. This man is almost three decades older than me, there is a lot of pressure," she said.
Then in February 2001, a motorist accused Simpson of attacking him in a fit of road rage. Simpson again turned himself in to police and was charged with felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.
During the October 2001 trial for the incident, the media circus returned. Millions of viewers watched the trial and the not guilty verdict.
Later that year, the FBI raided Simpson’s house while investigating ecstasy smuggling and money laundering. But no charges were filed.
But in 2007, he was arrested and charged in Las Vegas with robbery and kidnapping.
Prody stood by her on-again, off-again boyfriend and said: “I've known him for 12 years, sweetheart. He does not need to burglarize or rob anybody. “
Once again, the trial captured the attention of millions and even his old nemesis, murder trial prosecutor Marcia Clark was there. He was found guilty.
He was sentenced to 33 years in prison and is due for parole next year.
