O.J’s daughter Arnelle was right there with her dad when he was charged for murder in 1994. Also during his 2008 crime charge, she made an emotional testimony at the hearing in 2017. Which ultimately promoted a unanimous vote from four commissioners on the Nevada board of parole to grant the release.
Whatever it was, Arnelle stood by her father in all of his trials, defended him and even advocate for his release. Even though her mother, Marguerite Whitley disappeared from the limelight since her divorce from Simpson in 1979, Whitley sat beside her children through all their father’s trials, and that is commendable.
Marguerite has been married twice since her divorce in 1979. She married to Randolph Lewis first which lasted from 1986 to 1991. Then later to Sale Rep Anthony Thomas in 1992.
