Q10D: REASON FOR DIFFERENT VERDICTS: O.J. SIMPSON'S TESTIMONY

I'm going to name some things that were different in Simpson's first trial on criminal charges and his second trial on civil charges. Please tell me if you think that's a major or minor reason the verdicts in each trial were different. Simpson testified in the second trial. He did not testify in the first trial. Do you think that was a major reason or a minor reason the verdicts were different, or what?
