OJ Defense Tampered With Glove, Alleges Ex-Prosecutor

If the glove don't fit, it must have been tampered with, argues ex-prosecutor

Tons of people still “know OJ did it,” and a former LA deputy district attorney says that those who still count OJ Simpson guilty for the double-murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman have good reason to believe so. He says that the defense team tampered with evidence, specifically the infamous glove, just before OJ struggled to put it on in court.

It’s been 18 years since Simpson was arrested for the murders, and though Juice is currently serving time for another offense, the debate over his innocence in the murder case rages on, notes Newser. Former LA prosecutor Christopher Darden made a fairly pointed accusation about the case recently, arguing that he believes that the Johnnie Cochran-led defense team tampered with the glove just hours before OJ put it on in court.

“I think Johnnie [Cochran] tore the lining,” Darden said during a panel discussion about the trial at Pace Law School in New York City. “There were some additional tears in the lining so that OJ’s fingers couldn’t go all the way up into the glove.”

In a follow-up interview, Darden explained his accusation in more depth, reports Reuters. “A bailiff told me the defense had it during the lunch hour.” Darden then back-tracked, saying that he wasn’t accusing anyone specifically. “It’s been my suspicion for a long time that the lining has been manipulated.”

Alan Dershowitz, one of Simpson’s former defenders, called Darden’s allegations “a total fabrication” and said “the defense doesn’t get access to evidence except under controlled circumstances.”

“Having made the greatest legal blunder of the 20th century,” Dershowitz said of Darden, “he’s trying to blame it on the dead man,” referring to lead defense lawyer Cochran, who died in 2005.

Do you think that OJ did it?

    guilty! just like Casey. They both got off and they both will get there's in the end. Oh wait hahaha one down and one to go!

    So whats dershowitz mean when he says "the greatest legal blunder of the 20th century"? That he was an idiot for not being able to get the guilty verdict on a completely guilty man or for having him try on the glove in the first place?

    Plusit was soaked with blood which would also make it shrink, and he (or his attorneys) asked if he could wear a rubber glove so he would not contaminate it. Have you ever tried to wear a glove, and then put another glove on? Prosecution blew it on the glove…

    No doubt he did it. When he tried on the glove, the rubber glove he wore underneath would have prevented it from fitting. Any sane person could he that, except the starstruck jury who used 45 min. to decide a multiple murder. You could see Robert Kardashian's face when the verdict was announced that even he was stunned.

    They had had a perfect case but as the city of los angeles has done hundreds of times in the past, they tampered with the evidence in order to embellish their case against simpson. there are several hundred criminals who were released from prison after the lapd and the da's office trumped up extra evidence to make 100% sure of a conviction. research for yourself and find out how justice is done the la way.

    GUILTY…Sorry for the Brown's and the Goldman's who never got to see justice done for their children.When a relationship is over why can't people walk away with dignity and go on with their lives…Why do people have to kill because someone fell out of love? SOOOOOO SAD.

    He's guilty. Such a shame they didn't throw the boot at him. What goes around comes around so if he hasn't faced the worst of it, he will someday.

  8. Marie C. McCarty-Rojas

    Guilty, Guilty, He'll pay in Hell for what he did and so will everyone who helped him escape justice. At least he's in prison now for another crime but what comes around goes around. Jail's jail .I hope he likes the accomadatio

    Oh please! Stop fanning the flames of prejudice and ignorance. Thousands of people have died since that time and the assailents have either gotten away with it, have done little to no time or the wrong person was accused. I don't see their names or faces up there.
    You know people are waiting to go the bases level and say what they want without restraint or retribution. What a shame. This is a no issue. Can you do anything about healthcare? What about child abuse? The jobless rate? Stalled economy?
    Sheep are easily tricked. The thinking person a little harder.
