Trial & Error! The 5 Craziest “Not Guilty” Verdicts Of The VIBE Era


The Case: People of the State of California Vs. Orenthal James Simpson

The Outcome: After the media-branded “Trial of the Century,” O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her boyfriend Ronald Goldman in October 1995.

The Outrage: Though this trial went way deeper than just “guilty” or “not guilty,” there’s no denying that the not guilty verdict that was rendered sparked a ton or controversy back in ’95—even more controversy than this current Casey Anthony case is generating. After the prosecution appeared to bury O.J. underneath his jail cell with everything from his blood at the scene of the crime to Nicole Brown’s blood on his clothing to blood on the inside of his infamous Bronco, he still managed to beat the case. And people are still talking about it today.
