Wow, those memorabilia collectors will buy anything.

The interest rate on judgments in California is 10%. The knife, sold for $5 million, would cover less than two years of OJ's interest payments if creditors got their hands on it.

If I were rotting in prison owing everything I would ever make to some guy I hated, and I secretly owned something worth $5 million, I would make eliminating my creditors part of the purchase price. First, it would make me happy. Second, although the $33+ million liability would be inherited by someone, that someone might be willing to negotiate and take $4 million now in return for a release.

That's why the Daily Fail claims he wants it in a cash transaction in an overseas account.

It would only be worth 5 million... If he sold it.

Actually, the National Enquirer has a good track record whenever they've been sued, so I wouldn't write it off...Surprisingly so.

Good.

Let him sell it, then promptly seize the money under the Son Of Sam law (there have been many such precedents) and give the money to the people who have sued him, whom he plans on never paying.

If that's the law that says you can't profit from a crime you were convicted of, I don't think that applies.

There is no need to invoke a Son of Sam law here. He already owes what is for practical purposes an infinite amount of money. If he sells the knife for $5 million his creditors are legally entitled to take that money from him.

It doesn't matter. He was found not guilty. He could buy ad space right in the middle of the Presidential Election, say "GUESS WHAT I REALLY DID IT" and nobody could do jack shiat about it.

Of course, that's assuming that he's really able to do either of these things--buy ad space or sell knives--from his 6x9 cell at the Nevada State Correctional Facility in beautiful downtown Lovelock.

Trust me, as objectionable and ridiculous as this is, we don't want to be getting rid of double jeopardy.

/and there's no way in hell he gets $5 million for it.

I hope you're trolling, but I'll bite anyway.
Double jeopardy is what keeps the state from trying you over and over again on BS charges until they get the result they want. Is that really a road anybody is interested in going down?
 
2012-10-17 10:36:08 PM  
Good. He'll sell it, the money will be offshore and he'll get thrown in jail for contempt for not handing it over.
 
2012-10-17 10:36:37 PM  
This isn't going to help his case for parole when the parole board hears about it.
 
2012-10-17 10:36:55 PM  
Uh, yeah. Right.

I suspect the transfer will be keenly watched. While the murder can't be retried, there are other ancillary charges (Obstruction, destruction of evidence, etc) that could add several more years to Mr. Simpson's stay in the penitentiary.

His parole board will take note of it, though. Everyone has had enough of this murdering jackass playing the system--it's why he's in jail right now.
 
2012-10-17 10:39:54 PM  
I call BS on the whole article. Including KKs assertion that the statue of limitations has run out on the crime. I don't think there IS one on murder. Unless California is REALLY that stupid.

I would believe it, but I read in the National Enquirer that he was murdered in a jail about a year ago.

The civil authorities would have first dibs in such a case, and hopefully it would be awarded to the Goldmans.

Whereas his other creditors (Direct TV, MasterCard, etc) usually only get to take from whatever other legit income he makes, such as memorabilia sales, TV and movie royalties etc.

They aren't allowed to touch his pension though. Nobody is.

The creditors can file a claim on the knife proceeds, but I doubt they'll get any of it.

Who better knows the value of memorabilia than OJ Simpson? Isn't memorabilia the reason he's currently in prison? Does he not need the money? Are there not rich sick people out there?

So you think it's OK for someone to sue or prosecute you into the poor house without limitation?

The DA's office and the LAPD didn't deserve or earn a guilty verdict. The system worked.

The last thing we need is an overzealous, unchecked, unaccountable for sloppy work prosecutorial system.

You fail at civics AND history.

It's double jeopardy for OJ. The statute of limitations concern is for contempt (or something or another) for Kato.

Double jeopardy. You can't be tried for a crime you were already found not guilty of. But yes, it's all bullshiat.

People always justify this or that "because it's the law" so all those same people should agree that oj is actually innocent because the law said so.

I'm not disputing the logic of the individual points. I just think the whole thing is made up. For one thing, if there was such a knife, why wait 16 years to sell it?
