LOS ANGELES (CNN) - Marcia Clark resigned from her job as a prosecutor in the Los Angeles District Attorney's office Wednesday to work on her book about the O.J. Simpson case and other projects.
Clark, a prosecutor in the Simpson criminal trial, has been on leave from her job since Simpson was acquitted in October 1995 of charges he murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. After the Simpson case, Clark signed a $4.2 million deal to write her book titled "Without A Doubt," due out this spring.
"I hope to continue to champion the causes of truth and justice in other arenas, and to focus on lending my support to the advancement of women," Clark said in a written statement explaining her departure.
