In regards to bad character, criminal, drug dealer, there has to be convictions not just charges. Police lay the charges, a court will convict after hearing the evidence. Police issue speeding tickets which in essence is being charged for a violation of a provincial act or statute. Would this make you a criminal?

Innocent until proven guilty.

Even OJ got off the criminal charges however he was found liable in civil proceedings. After paying for all the legal fees in the criminal proceedings, he had very little assets left to pay for the judgment awarded in the civil proceedings.

Another point that should be noted is that OJ is a parent and despite his background of criminal proceedings, he has a meaningful relationship with his children.
