Hear straight from the mouths of jurors from the O.J. Simpson trial on “The Jury Speaks: O.J. Simpson,” which airs Saturday, July 22 at 9/8c on Oxygen. Lionel Cryer, Yolanda Crawford, David Aldana and Jeanette Harris dish about their horrific ten months in sequestration during O.J.’s murder trial for the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. They recount stress and isolation they dealt with and how it affected America’s most controversial verdict.
Christopher Darden, a prosecutor at the trial, also weighs in. In original interviews with Oxygen.com, he says part of the fascination behind the O.J. Simpson case is that "a celebrity got away with murder." Darden vehemently believes that the ex-football player was guilty of killing Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. He describes just how media impacted the jurors’ decisions as well as the behaviors of other players in the courtroom.
Darden tells Oxygen how difficult it is to find an impartial jury. But, when it comes to trying a celebrity, it becomes that much more complicated.
This episode kicks off the “The Jury Speaks,” a special four-night television event about the verdicts that stunned the nation. After O.J., stay tuned for episodes on the trials and jurors of Michael Jackson, George Zimmerman and Robert Durst.
