When the Trial of the Century began, twelve jurors and twelve alternates stepped into the Los Angeles County Court House to perform their civic duty. What they couldn’t have expected was that over the next nine months, they would be sequestered from public life and essentially have their entire lives put on pause. After all those months of testimony it took them mere hours to render one of the most controversial Not Guilty verdicts in history. In this episode of Confronting, Kim speaks with two of the jurors, Lionel Cryer and David Aldana. Both Lionel and David recall their experiences as part of the jury, reflect on the verdict they rendered and discuss how they would vote 25 years later.

This episode is different than what we told you would be coming your way. You were supposed to hear from jury members who acquitted O.J. Simpson in the criminal trial. Then something happened. We are going to pull back the curtain a bit and share something that occurred behind the scenes. We felt it was important to air this episode immediately. O.J. Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, has been vocal in the press, making some shocking and disparaging comments about Kim and her family. Executive Producer, Nancy Glass, spoke with Malcolm to see if he or his client would have a conversation with Kim. This episode includes their call in full, completely unedited.Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @Confrontingpod

O.J. Simpson’s murder trial was broadcast in its entirety on television, and millions of Americans watched. The story was controversial, sensational, absurd, and the world became invested in the outcome. In this episode Kim explores the media circus with Dan Abrams and Shoreen Maghame – the “Trial of the Century” launched both of their careers. Hundreds of media outlets covered the trial and all of them converged outside the courthouse in what became known as “Camp O.J.” The non-stop media coverage allowed everyone in the country to connect with the case. Every little detail of the case was scrutinized: the credibility of the LAPD, the reputations of witnesses and attorneys, all the way down to Marcia Clark’s hair. Kim also speaks with Henry Schleiff, who took over Court TV shortly after the trial ended, about how the coverage changed the face television forever. Everyone, including your co-host, Nancy Glass, takes a hard look at the insanity of the non-stop media coverage. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @Confrontingpod

In Episode 104, Kim goes back to the courthouse where her brother’s trial took place for the first time in 20 years. Kim sits down with former Assistant District Attorney Bill Hodgman and prosecutor Chris Darden, who both fought and failed to find justice for Kim’s brother. Kim presses to understand what went wrong with the prosecution’s case and learns that many believed the prosecution never had a chance. They’ll talk about Chris and Bill’s differing opinions on whether the prosecution was ready to go to trial or not. The two men reflect on the outcome and decisions that were made, most notably, Darden’s decision to have O.J. Simpson try on that black glove, which lead to the infamous phrase, “if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit”.Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @Confrontingpod

And the thing is.. if OJ admitted it and did he just flipped he probably would have done less time then when he actually served for the burglary charge

I'm sure they were all stressed but damn it was obvious he was guilty so THE NOT GUILTY VERDICT was utterly shameful! And believing evidence was planted is a crock of shit.

This case was lost simply because of the Rodney King verdict. It went from being a murder trial, to a way to get revenge on the LAPD. Had the officers been charged, I think the jurors would have considered the evidence slightly more fairly, & he would've been convicted of something.

what amazing people the Goldmans are! so wonderful to get such a full portrait of Ron that emphasizes what the world lost. Much more than just a "waiter friend of Nicole's." I am sure he is very proud of the woman Kim has become.

Although I listen to a lot of podcasts, I don't normally comment on the people who offer opinions. However, this man is awful. I don't understand why he has to attack rather than talk like a rational person. what is wrong with him?

He may have a platform, but think about this - it means that the truth of what he did will always be a part of the platform. I looked through the Tweets and people are doing you justice. Truth is just that - TRUTH! You know it, we know it, and that murderer knows it - no matter how many followers he has. Much love to you, brave woman.

He sounds like a 15 year old kid badmouthing a little ex-girlfriend. Always resorting to profanity because he can't think of adult words to actually use. Pathetic is all.

Rambling, disorganized speech and lack of focus belies cocaine intoxication. A coked-up, bottom-feeding shister lawyer is typical for Vegas.
