Christopher Darden is an American lawyer, author, lecturer, actor, and attorney, best known for serving as a co-prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder case. He worked for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office for 15 years. He had a difficult childhood but managed to obtain a BS degree from the San Jose State University and a JD degree from the University of California, Hastings. He joined the LA County District Attorney’s Office and was eventually transferred to their Special Investigation Division. Following the homicide charges brought against footballer O.J. Simpson, after the brutal murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman, Christopher served as the co-prosecutor of the case. While he tried to prove Simpson was guilty by suggesting he try on a pair of blood-soaked gloves found at the crime scene, the gloves did not fit Simpson, and he was acquitted. Following this, Christopher quit his job and started teaching criminal law. He also appeared on various TV shows and wrote several crime novels and his own autobiography. He has often been romantically linked with co-worker and attorney Marcia Clark. Christopher is now married to TV executive Marcia Carter, and they have three children.
