This paper conducts research on Orenthal James ‘O.J.’ Simpson’s 1994 murder trial of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson-Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman, in which Simpson was acquitted.This trial is one of the most televised court cases in history. Once a well-rounded guy, Simpson born in San Francisco, had a successful college football career at USC, winning the Heisman Trophy. Simpson then went onto the NFL playing for the Buffalo Bills as a star running back. The O.J. Simpson trial was majorly sensationalized due to the fact that he was one of the first african-american sports figure who 's crime was televised through all channels of media. I am going to discuss how he was considered not guilty in how is defense lawyers were able to get the charges acquitted. In this case money certainly bought Simpson justice but in a few other cases money did not buy people with celebrity status justice. The O.J. Simpson “White Bronco” chase is one of the most shocking moments in the history of the Los Angeles criminal justice system. Simpson was briefly asked to surrender in connection to the murder of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron when Simpson led authorities on a lengthy chase through Los Angeles’ freeways leaving the world fixated on watching this broadcast. Simpson hired a particular high-end defense team called, “The Dream Team.” The dream team consisted of eight attorneys, but there were three attorney’s that the media focused on and that led the direction of the defense.
