This location was once home to OJ Simpson. The home pictured is not the famous house, as the original home was demolished in 1998. The home was made famous in 1995 after OJ was charged with the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.
In 1994, OJ Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman, were found murdered at Nicole’s home. After the famous white Bronco chase, OJ was arrested and charged with their murders. After an internationally televised trial, OJ was acquitted of the murders. After serving 474 days in jail, he was freed and went to live at his house in Brentwood. OJ was found guilty by a civil jury and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the victim’s families. He continues to maintain his innocence.
In 2007, OJ was arrested in Las Vegas and charged with multiple felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping, related to stealing sports memorabilia. He was convicted in 2008 and sentenced to 33 years in prison. Currently serving time in Lovelock, Nevada, OJ is eligible for parole after nine years.
OJ lost his house to a bank foreclosure in 1997. OJ purchased the original house in 1977 for $655,000. The property was then a 6,200 square foot space featuring waterfalls, a tennis court, a swimming pool and guest quarters, made famous by OJ’s renter, Brian “Kato” Kaelin. The house was bought for $4 million and was bulldozed in 1998. A new house now sites on the lot.
OJ has a current estimated net worth of $250,000. After the court cases, the loss of the civil case, and child support, OJ’s net worth reduced dramatically.
