March 4, 2016 – Professor Peter Arenella commented in the Washington Post and The Guardian on an investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department into the existence of a knife allegedly found on O.J. Simpson’s former property.
Should the knife end up being relevant to the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman and can be tied to O.J. Simpson, there still may be no legal consequences for Simpson.
“Because of double jeopardy, even if O.J. Simpson and the victims’ DNA was found on this knife, he can’t be charged” said Professor Arenella.
