DO NOT USE

In the wake of O.J. Simpson's arrest for armed robbery, police are trying to determine if any of that memorabilia legally belongs to the Goldman family.

Simpson still owes the Goldmans and the Brown family $33 Million for the wrongful deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994. Simpson was acquitted of the murders.

The Goldmans were able to obtain the rights to Simpson's controversial book "If I Did It" which details how the murders would have happened had he committed them, but Fred Goldman, Ron's father, strongly believes that Simpson has not come close to paying his dept.

"I guess the first reaction I had to seeing him in handcuffs and walking was he still had that arrogant swagger about him, 'I'm still in charge of the world,'" Goldman told Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith. "Which is what I think this whole thing is all about. He thinks he can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants, the world is his stage and he's the master puppeteer."

Simpson faces serious jail time - possibly a minimum of three years and as much as 10, 15, 20 or more. Goldman says that it would be "wonderful" if Simpson goes to jail, but it comes a many years too late.

"I would have much preferred him found guilty of Ron and Nicole's death and then be put either to death or in jail then," he said. "To see him ultimately potentially go to jail, that's great. I hope, frankly the prosecutors in Vegas cross every T and dot every I and make sure they treat him just like every other accused burglar and don't give him any special treatment and ultimately he gets the kind of punishment everybody else would get."

In the meantime, Goldman says his family is using part of the proceeds from "If I Did It," which has gone to No. 1 on the best seller list, to contribute to the Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice.

"We hope to be able to give back to victims in this country" he said. "They need as much help as anybody as you can imagine."
