The First Degree

On October 3rd 1995, 100 million Americans watched as a jury declared OJ Simpson not guilty of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman. The verdict rattled faith in the justice system, stained popular culture, and the strategies implemented by Simpson's defense team heightened police distrust. The country has (seemingly) moved on, but the emotional ruins left in the wake of Simpson's acquittal continue to affect those who loved the victims. Research Sources & Credits: We could not have done this episode without the incredible work and observations made by Dominick Dunne, reflected in his Complete O.J. Simpson Trial Coverage for Vanity Fair. Get an exclusive intro offer of 6 bottles of wine for only $29.95!!
