On October 3, 1995, O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, restaurant waiter Ron Goldman. On February 4, 1977, in a wrongful death civil lawsuit filed by the Brown and Goldman families, a jury found Simpson "responsible" for their their deaths and awarded the families compensatory and punitive damages totaling $33.5 million.

In September 2007, a group of men led by Simpson entered a room at the Palace Station hotel-casino in Las Vegas and took sports memorabilia at gunpoint. Simpson admitted to taking the items, which he said had been stolen from him, but denied breaking into the hotel room; he also denied that he or anyone else carried a gun.

Simpson and three other men were charged with the break-in. On October 3, 2008- 13 years to the day he had been acquitted in the Brown-Simpson/Goldman murders- Simpson was found guilty of 12 charges: conspiracy to commit a crime, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon, two counts of first-degree kidnapping with a deadly weapon, two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and two counts of coercion with a deadly weapon.

On December 5, 2008, Simpson was sentenced to a total of 33 years in prison. He is eligible for parole in October, 2017, when he will be 70 years old.

She was a 52-year-old woman who had worked 20 years for the railroad, had once been a Democrat and was now a Republican, and counted herself among the growing swath of people who occupied the fringes of American politics but were increasingly becoming part of the mainstream. Like millions of others, she believed that President Obama was a Muslim. And like so many she had gotten to know online through social media, she also believed that he was likely gay, that Michelle Obama could be a man, and that the Obama children were possibly kidnapped from a family now searching for them. The scariest thing you'll read this week.
