As O.J. Simpson's trial on armed robbery charges kicked off Monday in Las Vegas, the prosecutor looking to put the former football star behind bars—possibly for the rest of his life—urged the jury to make this the "final chapter" in Simpson's infamous and, in recent years, sordid story.
Simpson has demonstrated "a pattern of arrogance coupled with hypocrisy," Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Owens said in his opening statement. "Ladies and gentlemen, you are the jurors in this case and the final story is going to be told by you.
"You will be able to write that final chapter, the chapter of arrogance and hypocrisy, and that will be the true verdict. The verdict you can feel good about."
