Simpson was once a very popular athlete and broadcaster, but he is now best known for standing trial for the murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman. He was acquitted of the murders in criminal court, but a civil trial concluded that he was responsible for both deaths.

He didn’t serve any prison time for Nicole or Goldman’s deaths, but he eventually found himself behind bars.
