Could O.J. have really been guilty?
Christopher Darden, a former prosecutor known for losing the O.J. Simpson case in the mid 1990s, now says the “bloody glove” that played such an integral role in Simpson’s acquittal might have been tampered with by defense attorney Johnnie Cochran (now deceased).
Darden claims that Cochran had access to the gloves shortly before they were introduced in court and prior to Simpson unsuccessfully trying them on. He says it looked like the lining had been torn, which would make it difficult for Simpson to wear.
Of course, the gloves were also soaked in blood and shrank roughly 15% as a result. There is no way Simpson could fit into them. And sadly, some jurors acquitted him based solely on this pathetic demonstration.
Devil’s advocate time: Christopher Darden was part of the team who lost the so-called “Trial of the Century,” and he lost it to Johnnie Cochran. Why not accuse a dead man of malfeasance just to make yourself look better? Or open the door to more talk show appearances based on the “new evidence” you decided to share the moment people stopped talking about you?
There’s something fishy going on here, but it doesn’t matter. O.J. was likely guilty and got away with it, but not for long. He is now serving a nine-year stint in Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada for numerous felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping.
Glad to see karma finally caught up to him…
