Last night I was watching the news and they reported that OJ Simpson had been convicted on all 12 counts including kidnapping. The irony is that they pointed out that yesterday was the 13th anniversary to the day that he had been acquitted of the murders of Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson.
For those of you not based in LA, 13 years ago this was the number 1 story here in LA. I felt close to the story as the parents of Ron Goldman lived in my neighborhood at the time and I would often see them during the course of the trial.
When OJ was acquitted of of the murders I thought about Ron's parents and wondered how they could live with the fact that the man who had killed their son was set free. In hearing the verdict last night I hope that it brings the Goldmans and the family of Nicole some sense of Justice.
I heard last night that OJ will face 15 years to life. Correction: I had previously thought they had let him out on bail but have learned he is now in jail and will hopefully stay there
