Description

25 years after the crimes that ignited the "Trial of the Century" Kim Goldman, sister of murder victim Ron Goldman, is digging deep into the vicious crime that changed her life, and many others, forever. Thrust into the public eye at the age of 22, Kim was devastated when OJ Simpson was found not guilty of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole and her brother Ron. There has been much debate and confusion about what really happened the night of those brutal murders and for the first time Kim gets answers to questions that have been haunting her since the trial. She sits down with prosecutors, investigators, and witnesses who never got to speak and jurors who voted not guilty. In this 10-part series, Kim takes you on a journey as she reclaims and reflects on the part of her life that was changed permanently.

Enough is enough. Celebrities have always been held to a different standard of the law. In this story, that fact holds true. Simpson was able to skirt the law, even after his track record of his abuse and battery of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown. On this episode of Confronting, Kim explores the difficult and complex subject of domestic violence. Kim speaks with a close friend of Nicole Brown as well as with the advocate from the City of Los Angeles who handled Nicole’s case over 30 years ago. Finally, Kim speaks with policy expert Esta Soler, the founder of Futures Without Violence, who continues to fight for reforms around domestic violence in our criminal justice system and our culture.

The Goldmans didn’t get justice during the criminal trial, but the family had a second chance by filing a civil case against Simpson for the wrongful death of Ron. This time, it wouldn’t be “the People vs. Orenthal James Simpson”, it would be the Goldman’s name on the lawsuit. Kim speaks with Dan Petrocelli, the Goldman’s attorney for the lesser-known civil trial. Dan reflects on everything from his strategy in the courtroom, to the pressure he felt to win the case. Kim also speaks with Pablo Fenjves, a witness during the criminal trial who was later hired to ghostwrite Simpson’s book, If I Did It –  a hypothetical account of the night of the murders. Pablo and Kim discuss how this book came to be and Pablo expresses what he learned as he wrote what was essentially a pseudo admission of guilt with Simpson.

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

I can't help but feel sick that even if he were innocent, how could he say such mean things about a greaving family? Even if being accused, a decent human being would say more to the effect of, "I am innocent, but feel for the pain this family is going through". Not calling Kim a bitch and talking crap about the family. He is a despicable person on every level. There is no way he is innocent and I'm glad the family at least won the civil case.

I just would say to her. "I'm sorry this happened to you". and then walk away. just would be afraid to trigger or annoy her. oh and I'd offer a hug. doubt she'd take it, but if offer it.

I wish someone would do a movie about Nicole, and Ron’s life’s before the killer. I would end the movie when Ron left the restaurant with the glasses.

I think we are all really really lucky to have this podcast , I just think Kim deserves a hell of a lot encouragement for being brave and strong enough to do this for her family, her brother Ron, and for herself. I know pain and I know it well, so this takes incredible strength, will and passion, for the heart and spirit to handle this process; Of which, is surreal when you are under a microscope and torn apart even more, for anything thing you say, do or feel. I would not have come close to being this strong , I am barely strong enough to just talk and try, let alone face a crazy hollywood production in the 90s. I am in complete agreement with what was said in this podcast, in that, not all wounds heal with time. The worst remain forever imprinted and re-lived every second of every day. Thank you for this rear view mirror and perspective, on healing, growth and perseverance. I am so sorry for your loss, for all it is, every ounce. I hope you see and hear and feel the strength and courage, we as the audience are being given by you, and the inspiration for those suffering in the aftermath of their own tragedies. I no I am no one, but i wish you and yours all the best, in healing, love and strength.

It's true. Throughout this podcast I've envied you your wonderful father and your tragically short relationship with your brother. No doubt your trauma is tempered by all that love.

Let's be honest, though. This podcast is also capitalizing on this case. And the people subscribing and listening? We're the true crime bingeing weirdos who would go on such a tour. That doesn't mean we don't also ache for your loss and cry listening to your story. The guy running the tour, though, sounds a little too eager to embellish. He should deliver the facts respectfully.
