Seventeen years ago, lawyer Johnnie Cochran made what many jurors saw as the most damning case against the case of murder against OJ Simpson— “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit” he said. And as OJ tried to put on the black leather glove found at the murder scene, it appeared to be too small. But now, a former OJ prosecutor claims Cochran tampered with the glove to make it too small on the inside for Simpson’s hand.
17 years since the O.J. Simpson trial, former prosecutor Christopher Darden is ready to blow the lid off this whole thing.
Better late than never, right?
Darden is now alleging that Simpson’s defense attorney Johnnie Cochran tampered with the glove he later made his client try on. The glove Simpson was accused of wearing when he murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman didn’t fit because Cochran made sure it didn’t.
I think Johnnie tore the lining. There were some additional tears in the lining so that O.J.’s fingers couldn’t go all the way up into the glove.
Johnnie Cochran, who is dead, had no comment.
Darden says he was told by a bailiff that the defense team had the glove during the lunch hour. If true, that’s a pretty serious oversight.
Which is why it’s probably a lie, according to member of the defense team Alan Dershowitz. He called it a “total fabrication,” saying the defense never has private access to evidence.
Having made the greatest legal blunder of the 20th Century, [Darden is] trying to blame it on the dead man.
