OJ Simpson lawyer: Paper proves his innocence
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- F. Lee Bailey, who defended O.J. Simpson against murder charges, claims that evidence pointing to Simpson's innocence was held back from the 1995 trial.
Bailey recently posted a 20,000-word document on his website.
In it, he claims the defense declined to call four witnesses, including one who might have seen what Bailey calls the "real killers" of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
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 on a tape recording and wrote a detailed description and sketch of his observations.
Bailey theorizes they were mistaken for targets in a drug hit.
He says the defense chose not to call that witness or others, because it worried that if the eight-month trial did not end soon, more jurors would be dismissed leading to a mistrial.
