In 1997, he was ordered to pay more than $33 milllion for their wrongful deaths. He is now serving a prison sentence in Nevada for kidnapping, robbery, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and other charges for trying to obtain memorabilia he claims belonged to him.

On March 4, 2016, it was reported that Los Angeles police are investigating and testing a knife that was recovered on property once owned by O.J. Simpson and turned over to a police officer a number of years ago by a person working construction there.
