Defense lawyer rebuts charge that Simpson’s ‘bloody glove’ was tampered with
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — A member of O.J. Simpson’s defense team on Saturday vigorously rebutted a former prosecutor’s charge that lead attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. had tampered with the famous “bloody glove” that was a key piece of evidence in the football star’s acquittal.
During the trial in the stabbing deaths of Simpson’s former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Lyle Goldman, Simpson tried on bloody gloves and held up his hands in front of the jury box to let everyone see the leather bunched up around his broad palms and that they wouldn’t fit. That demonstration became a powerful symbol for the defense, summed up by Cochran: “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”
