The glove did not fit. The jury did not convict.
But the O.J. Simpson trial remains a subject of utter fascination around the world.
Over two decades since Simpson, Marcia Clark, Johnnie Cochran and company exchanged blows, glances and arguments in court, what has happened to each of these key players?
Let's find out...
He was acquitted of double murder in 1995. Then, incredibly, he was convicted of armed robbery in 2008 after he violently tried to get back items he claimed someone had stolen from him. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison and is eligible for parole in 2017.
The defense attorney penned two books after the trial, 1996's Journey to Justice and 2002's A Lawyer's Life. He continued to practice law until passing away from a brain tumor in 2005.
Clark took a leave of absence from District Attorney's office after the trial... before officially resigning in 1997. She went on to write a book about her experience, Without a Doubt. She's since written four novels and even appeared on Pretty Little Liars.
Following the Simpson verdict in 1995, Darden left the DA's office in 1995 and went on to teach law at L.A.'s Southwestern University School of Law. In 1999, he founded his own firm, Darden & Associates, in 1999 and eventually wrote a book about the O.J. trial.
At the age of 73, Shapiro is still practicing law, focusing more on civil litigation, and helping to run The Brent Shapiro Foundation in honor of his son, who died of a drug overdose.
Fuhrman is now a contributor for Fox News. He pleaded no contest to perjury after the trial and received three years probation. He has also written multiple crime novels.
