O.J. Simpson One Hand Freed During Vegas Hearing … Claiming Ineffective Counsel for Reason for New Trial
O.J. Simpson freed. Well not quite, just his right hand. Simpson won a small victory today when District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell allowed the defense request that Simpson’s right hand will be unshackled to allow him to drink water and take notes during his trial. His left hand will be cuffed to his chair. Simpson is attempting to get a new trial citing grossly ineffective counsel. Currently Simpson is serving 9 to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping charges. Could it be possible that OJ Simpson could be back in another court room and another trial if he is granted his motion of ineffective counsel and be granted his writ of Habeas Corpus?
Simpson allowed use of right hand at trial … let’s hope there are no knives nearby
Lawyers for O.J. Simpson are claiming that his lawyer for his robbery trial gave such bad advice and had such conflicted interests that Simpson deserves a new trial.
LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson became so dependent on his lawyer during his Las Vegas armed robbery trial that the former football star would have done anything Yale Galanter advised — including passing up the chance to testify, his co-counsel testified Tuesday.
“I could advise O.J. all day long, and he was very respectful of me,” Gabriel Grasso told the court. “But if I advised him of something different from what Yale said, he would do what Yale said.”
It was Galanter’s decision not to have Simpson testify, Grasso said. [...]
Simpson won a small victory Tuesday when District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell granted a defense request to have one of Simpson’s hands unshackled to drink water and take notes. Simpson’s left hand was still cuffed to his chair.
Simpson managed a smile and a waist-high wave with his shackled hand as he entered the courtroom and found friends and family members in the audience. Among them was Tom Scotto, whose wedding was the reason for Simpson’s ill- fated trip to Las Vegas.
OJ Simpson Heads to Court Monday Seeking “Hail Mary Motion,” a Writ of Habeas Corpus, Stating Bad Representation Should Reverse his Conviction and New Trial Ordered
He’s baaack, like a bad penny.
O.J. Simpson will return to court in Las Vegas, Nevada in and attempt to seek a “Hail Mary” motion, better known as a writ of Habeas Corpus. The motion claims that OJ had such bad representation during his first trial that his conviction should be reversed and a new trial ordered. In 2008 Simpson was convicted on armed robbery and kidnapping charges and sent to prison after “The Juice” participated in a bizarre hotel room robbery, claiming he was trying to get back personal memorabilia that he claimed was stolen from him. Simpson was found guilty as the “glove fit” this time and is presently serving 9 to 33 years for the crimes.
Simpson has filed 19 claims of ineffective counsel and attorney conflict of interest in the 2008 case. Simpson contends his trial attorney never told him about a plea bargain that had been offered by prosecutors. He also said in a sworn statement that the same attorney knew about the memorabilia sting before it happened, and “he advised me that I was within my legal rights.”
Simpson is expected to testify sometime during the week-long hearing.
Too bad this verdict did not happen in a Los Angles, CA court room
Most defendants lose these motions, but in this case nobody is taking bets on the outcome. When it comes to O.J Simpson, who knows?
Nothing is the same when O.J. is involved,” said Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson, who observed Simpson’s Los Angeles trial. “An O.J. case is never like any other case.”
Simpson was famously acquitted on murder charges related to the death of his ex-wife and her friend in a 1995 trial that captivated the nation. When he was sentenced in 2008, Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass, referencing the murder trial, said that her penalty was not intended as “retribution or any payback for anything else.”
Doesn’t OJ Simpson know, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Including criminals found guilty. For some one who got away with murder, Simpson should count his lucky stars that he is still breathing and has a possibility of getting parole.

Former OJ Simpson Prosecutor Christopher Darden Accuses Johnnie Cochran of Tampering with Evidence 17 Years Later … Dershowitz Says, “if Darden’s lying, he should be disbarred”
Just when you thought the OJ Simpson case was gone forever …
It might have been one of the most famous and infamous lines ever used in a closing argument by a defense attorney … If the glove does not fit, then you must acquit”. Those were the words uttered by defense attorney Johnnie Cochran that became the enduring memorable moment of the OJ Simpson murder trial and his acquittal. However, 17 years later, OJ Simpson is serving time in prison on a separate charge and famed defense attorney Johnnie Cochran since deceased, former LA County prosecutor Chistopher Darden is making the claim that Cochran tampered with evidence, namely the bloody glove. Cochran died of a brain tumor in March 2005.
Seventeen years after the sensational murder trial of O.J. Simpson, the former prosecutor who went up against the ex-football star’s legal “dream team” is now accusing famed defense attorney Johnnie Cochran of evidence tampering.
Christopher Darden was a 15-year veteran of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office when he asked Simpson to try on the once blood-soaked gloves that prosecutors said Simpson wore during the June 1994 brutal murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Wow, not only is Barack Obama the first black President, he is also according to Charlie Cook, of the famed The Cook Political Report, a “Metrosexual President.”
How out of touch are these people? As reported at The Daily Caller, Charlie Cook thinks that Barack Obama does not play well in small towns because Obama is a “Metrosexual President”. Sure it is. Because is has nothing to do with his failed economic policies, Obamacare and socialist agenda? Because that $787 billion stimulus worked so well and unemployment continues over 8%. Millions of Americans have fallen off the employment rolls and record numbers find themselves on food stamps. Let alone the US finds itself hopelessly in debt.
According to his co-guest David Drucker, a reporter for Roll Call, it stems from a dissatisfaction with Washington, particularly with ObamaCare. However, Cook says it is something more.
“Small towns — states with a large small town rural populations, Democrats in general, the president has had a really hard time,” Cook said. “I mean, we have kind of a metrosexual president … that doesn’t go over well in the small town. And it’s just cultural. It is what it is.”
New Book “O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It,” Asserts O.J. Simpson Did not Kill Nicole Brown Simpson … Claims it was the Juice’s Son Jason Simpson
WOW, its been 17 years since the verdict from the trial of the century when OJ was found not guilty of the murder of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Many thought that there was jury nullification and that OJ was in fact guilty. However, a new book is out that asserts O.J. Simpson did not murder Nicole Brown Simpson. Is that really plausible?
Is the 500+ book the real account of what happened or a vehicle to a defamation of character law suit?
“Mr. Dear’s investigation and former theories and new facts in this book make it extremely plausible and believable.”
—James Cron, former Commander,
Dallas County Sheriff’s Crime Scene Unit
“Unlike preceding books on this subject by others, Mr. Dear’s new book, to me, offers a ‘strong suspect.’ ”
—Hugh Aynesworth, The Washington Times
A new book, “O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It,” authored by William C. Dear states that he knows who killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman and it was not O.J. Simpson. Dear asserts that it was Nicole Simpson was killed by OJ’s son Jason Simpson. The bizarre situation is that Jason was never named a suspect in the murders of Nicole Simpson or Ron Goldman. Dear also says that he is in possession of the murder weapon, gained from a storage unit once owned by his suspect. William Dear claims OJ Simpson tried to cover up his son’s crimes and even allowed himself to be put on trial to divert police attention from his son. Hmm?
In the new book “O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It,” author-investigator William C. Dear asserts that he knows who killed Nicole Brown Simpson. As you can guess from the title, he believes it was not O.J. Simpson: He claims it was Jason Simpson, the former football star’s son.
USA Today reports that Dear says he has the knife used in the murders, saying he obtained it from a storage facility rented by Jason Simpson, who had allowed his payments to lapse.
