O.J. Simpson Is “Moving On” 25 Years After His Controversial Murder Trial
Written by KFAT on July 5, 2019
Las Vegas, NV, United States (4E) – O.J. Simpson say he’s moving on after 25 years of living through one of the most controversial murder cases in the United States.
Simpson said that he and his family have moved on from the “trial of the century” and has entered in “no negative zone” phase as he lives a happy and healthy life in Las Vegas nearly two years after being released from prison in October 1, 2017.
The former football star was charged for murder for the death of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in June 12, 1994.
“We don’t need to go back and relive the worst day of our lives,” he said during the telephone interview. “The subject of the moment is the subject I will never revisit again. My family and I have moved on to what we call the ‘no negative zone.’ We focus on the positives.”
Simpson’s televised trial lasted for nearly a year and became the topic of national debate. He was acquitted by a jury in 1995, a verdict that polarized the country. In 1997, the victims’ families filed a civil suit against him, in which Simpson was found liable and was ordered to pay $33.5 million.
For the victims’ family, the pain of loss is still in their hearts. “Closure isn’t a word that resonates with me. I don’t think it’s applicable when it comes to tragedy and trauma and loss of life,” Kim Goldman, sister of Ronald, said.
Simpson has kept a low profile since his release in October 2017 after serving a nine-year prison sentence for robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas.
The 71-yer-old shared that he maintains a close-knit relationship with his children and relative. He enjoys playing golf everyday and has been allowed by his parole officer to take short trips, particularly Florida where his younger children live.
