Born to a hospital administrator and chef and bank custodian, Simpson was brought up and raised in San Francisco, California. He has a brother named Melvin Leon "Truman" Simpson and two sisters, one of which is deceased. He is pretty close to his eldest child Arnelle. He was raised by his mother after their parents got separated in 1952. Later, his father died of AIDS.
The famous athlete was charged with the murder of his wife Nicole and her friend Goldman. Although lead prosecutor Marcia Clark had strong shreds of evidence against him, Simpson’s lawyer Johnnie Cochran very tactfully dismissed the case by proving her wrong. Finally, on October 3, 1995, the case got closed as he was proven not guilty of the crime.
Besides these charges, Simpson has also been accused of pirating broadcasting signals using illegal electronic devices, water speeding, suspicion of money laundering and burglary of an occupied conveyance. He has been involved with the famous Las Vegas robbery case taking sports memorabilia at gunpoint. Simpson, along with the other three, was charged with criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery and using a deadly weapon.
The Nevada Parole Board granted Simpson parole on some charges on July 31st, 2013, but his imprisonment continued based on the weapons and assault charges. However, on October 1st, 2017, he was released after having served 9 years in prison.
