Robert Shapiro Reveals New And Troubling O.J. Simpson Trial Secrets

It has been over 20 years since Robert Shapiro has given an interview, and he finally gave his first in two decades to Megyn Kelly. The 73-year-old, who is still practicing law, represented O.J. Simpson in the Trial of the Century. He finally revealed what O.J. told him immediately after the not guilty verdict, he whispered into Shapiro's ear and said "You told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right." In addition, Shapiro told Kelly that he tried on the famous "if it doesn't fit" glove between court sessions and believes more than one person was involved in the murders of Nicole Simpson Brown and Ronald Goldman.

He told Kelly that the prosecution, led by Marcia Clark, failed to understand the evidence and were not ready to present their case to the judge. He also stated that it was possible more than one knife was used in the horrific killing of the pair in 1994. Shapiro told Kelly, "I tried the glove on. It was a little bit wide in my palm and a little bit long in my fingers. O.J. Simpson has enormous hands and I knew that the glove would not fit him. No question about it. Wouldn’t even be close." He then said he urged Simpson to hold it high like an Olympic torch because he knew it wouldn't fit. Kelly then asked Shapiro if it felt odd to try on a glove that possibly belonged to a murderer.

Shapiro replied, "That is a very compelling question that I’ve never even thought about, and we’d looked at that glove, every expert had looked at that glove. It did have stains on it, did have certain cuts on it. I didn’t consider it, but, it’s kind of an eerie thought when you say that. As you say it now, it is chilling, but it wasn’t something that I contemplated or thought about at the time." The gloves were a major reason Simpson did not receive murder charges. Kelly asked Shapiro if he believed the verdict was fair.

Shapiro said, "There’s two types of justice that we deal with, in America: there’s moral justice and there’s legal justice. If you look at it from a moral point of view, a lot of people would say he absolutely did it. I deal in legal justice, as you did as a lawyer, and that’s proof beyond a reasonable doubt. And there’s no question in my mind that any fair juror who saw that case from the beginning to the end would conclude there was reasonable doubt." Kelly then asks Shapiro how he can live with himself. Shapiro responded, "Our system of justice is based on the theory that we hope and pray that innocent people are never convicted. And the price we pay is that guilty people sometimes do and will go free." Shapiro added that he wouldn't take Simpson on as a client now, as he still owes him money from 20 years ago.
