Former Lawyer Swears: O.J. Simpson Was Innocent!

by at . Comments

F. Lee Bailey helped O.J. Simpson beat the rap for murder. Now he's trying to help clear his name in the court of public opinion for some reason.

Evidence of O.J.'s innocence was held back in the 1995 trial in which he was acquitted in the murder of his ex-wife and her friend, Bailey says.

In new legal papers, Bailey tells of four people who could have bolstered Simpson's case but never testified, while offering a trial overview.

Simpson was found not guilty. Most Americans are convinced he is guilty, Bailey said, but his documents may persuade some doubters that he is innocent.

ROTFL.

Bailey wrote the documents, called "The Simpson Verdict," as a proposal for a book that never materialized. He published them on his website Sunday.

"It's time somebody put out the real facts of the case," he said of four people who never testified - a forensic scientist, an expert on battered women, a blood expert and the person who may have seen ... wait for it ... the real killer(s)!

That witness, he wrote, saw a woman the night of the murders matching Nicole Brown Simpson's description in an apparent confrontation with two men.

Neither of whom was O.J. Simpson. Upon hearing of the murders the next day, the witness recalled what he saw, described it and even drew a sketch.

The defense team decided not to call any of the four out of fear that additional jurors would be dismissed and a mistrial declared if the trial didn't end.

They also figured they had it won as it were, which was correct.

Bailey said he thinks the real killers were out to collect a drug debt, killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, mistaking them for their targets.

Although Simpson was found not guilty in a court of law, Bailey said it's important to prove him innocent in the court of public opinion.

"O.J. has what I call the damnation of an acquittal," Bailey said.

Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred, who represented Nicole Brown Simpson's family during Simpson's trial, said she doesn't see any "smoking gun" in Bailey's document that might persuade people who think he was guilty to think otherwise.

If Bailey's evidence were that strong, she said, it would have been used in his civil trial, where he was found liable for wrongful deaths and ordered to pay a $33.5 million judgment. Hard to argue with Gloria on that one.

"If Mr. Bailey can't think of anything better than trying to help the public reputation of O.J. Simpson, that's really sad," Allred said, also validly.

As for the fact that he pretty much admitted the murders on several occasions, and the fact that come on, he totally did, Bailey had no comment.

After reading my own comment, I realize that I do not believe O.J. was the killer.

I think the killers were looking for Faye Resnick. She paid them off by writing a terrible book about NIcole. And yes I think fuhrman planted evidence. And I also think there were more than one killer. Whether one was O.J. I do not know.

Comment by queenuni Agreed. Gloria Allred is a poor excuse for a woman.

Would you agree there are too many coincidences in Mark Furhman's involvement? 1) Furhman was at Nicole and OJ's house years before the murder 2) Fuhrman is a known and admitted racist. 3) Furhman was known to plant evidence in other cases. 4) Furhman pled guilty to perjury during the trial. 5) Furhman supposedly "found" the glove, 6) Fuhrman supposedly "found" the blood in OJ's car, 7) Fuhrman supposedly "found" the sock, 8) Furhman begged the LAPD eleven years before the murders to relieve him from duty because he was afraid of what he might do to black men because he hated them, and 9) Fuhrman tried to inject himself in Nicole's life... Does that seem like a lot of "Fuhrman" coincidences to other people?

Ever watch "Dexter"? Notice those short, driving gloves that he wears when doing "the deed"? That is the type of glove OJ wore that night, that appeared in court and had been shrunken and disfigured by the blood soaking that they took. The glove DID fit, but the jury was too ignorant to take into account that the gloves were supposed to be short, as they were driving gloves, and would have slipped on more easily had they not been soaked in blood that then made them very stiff after drying.

Not that I think OJ is innocent or anything, but having Ms. Allred comment that Bailey's actions are "sad" is laughable to me. That woman is a joke!
