O.J. Simpson’s Las Vegas trial got underway with opening statements today. The trial kicked off a day after the one year anniversary of the alleged raid at a Sin City hotel that sparked the criminal charges.
Simpson and co-defendant Clarence ” C.J.” Stewart are charged with a dozen offenses including robbery and kidnapping.
Last week, 9 women and 3 men were selected from a jury pool of 500 to serve on this jury. There are six alternate jurors, among them two African Americans.
