Aired on 01/01/2015 | CC tv-14
In 1995, the historic verdict in the Trial of the Century set O.J. Simpson free and divided our nation along racial lines. At the center of this media circus was prosecuting attorney Christopher Darden, who made headlines for breaking down at a press conference following the trial. On the Oprah Show in 1997, Christopher said the trial was "a mockery, a circus, a joke" and said he felt bitter. More than 15 years later, he says his perspective has changed.

"I was a devastated and decimated by the trial," he says. "Now, when I think about it, I don't think I'm so much bitter. Now, I think I'm angry. I mean, I couldn't be angry back then, couldn't be pissed off."

Watch the video above to find out if Christopher keeps in touch with fellow O.J. prosecutor Marcia Clark and how he's trying to put the trial behind him.
