Since his conviction in 1982 Williams has professed his innocence, which has generated vast speculation among criminal justice experts concerning Williams’s involvement in these crimes (Rowson, 2015). A recent study conducted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the FBI, the Innocence Project, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers revealed that before 1999 the FBI used faulty hair analysis in 96 percent of cases (Rowson, 2015). Furthermore, Williams’ attorney received a letter from the DOJ

I think there is more evidence proving his innocence than his guiltiness. The corruption in this case and the racism in the LAPD helped the defense show that there was not enough evidence to prove that OJ was guilty. There are many reasons why I think OJ is innocent, but the piece of evidence that I think is most important is that all of OJ’s blood at the crime scene contained EDTA. EDTA is something that is put in test tubes with blood to prevent blood clots. EDTA is not found naturally in people's blood, which means someone had to have planted OJ’s blood at the scene.
