O.J. Simpson

O.J. Simpson

When it comes to crime from NFL players, no one’s name has stuck in the public consciousness like the Juice.

He burst onto the scene as one of the greatest running backs ever play the game. The five-time Pro Bowler ran for 11,236 yards and 61 touchdowns playing for Buffalo and San Francisco on his way into the Hall of Fame. In 1994, his fame turned infamous when he was arrested and charged for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Simpson was acquitted of the charge. After a long and publicized trial, his life would never be the same.

In 2007, he was arrested again for armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas. Unable to beat these charges, Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison and a minimum of nine years without parole. He got released in 2017.

He also got into legal trouble for owing $1.44 million in back taxes, got arrested for simple battery and burglary, had his home searched by the FBI on suspicion of ecstasy possession and money laundering, got arrested for water speeding through a manatee protection zone and failing to comply with boating regulations, and got implicated in a scheme to steal and pirate DirecTV.
