SACRAMENTO, March 29 (UPI) -- O.J. Simpson's book, "If I Did It," which theorizes how he might have killed his ex-wife and her companion, will be auctioned next month in California.
The attorney for the family of Ron Goldman, who was killed with Nicole Brown Simpson, said the public auction will be conducted by the Sacramento County, Calif., Sheriff's Department, which posted notices informing publishers, Hollywood studios and talent agencies about the sale, E! News reported.
Sale proceeds will go to members of the Goldman family, who won a legal victory earlier in March when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg ruled that they are entitled to income Simpson may earn from the book. The family has been trying to collect on a 10-year-old $33.5 million wrongful death civil judgment it won against him.
The lawyer added that if no publishing house buys the rights, then the family will have no choice but to do so.
"We're the buyer of last resort and we have to be because otherwise it would make a total travesty of the process if he regained the property in the end," said David Cook.
Simpson was found innocent of felony charges in the double murders.
