OJ Simpson due back in court today trying to get a new trial he has been behind bars for.
Years almost five years serving a thirty year sentence for armed robbery kidnapping after confronting.
Two sports memorabilia dealers in Vegas hotel room Simpson is trying what lawyers calling.
Hail Mary motion apropos for Simpson since he was a Heisman Trophy winner.
But claiming he had such bad representation.
At his 2008 trial that is conviction should be.
Overturn a new trial -- mark Furman as a former LAPD homicide detective Fox News contributor who of course worked.
And -- OJ Simpson murder case back in the 1990s Arthur I doubt.
Is a veteran criminal defense attorney so mark let me start -- -- mean you know this every -- behind bars claims he had a lousy lawyer.
But that argument almost never works in OJ's case.
I mean he had Yale Galanter we have a picture of Galanter who is you know what he's kind of an arrogant hot dog.
I thought he is very skilled inexperienced -- mark.
Yep he has he's a very good attorney.
And that -- has a long relationship.
With OJ Simpson going on form before the civil trials so.
To have OJ Simpson argue that it's an incompetent.
That would be kind of silly he's used him for everything from.
Business dealings pursuits for defense and civil suits and criminal.
Yet you don't want to play a clip right here Arthur and -- ask you about it you know OJ.
After his football career was kind of a B list actor here's -- is half performance in court take a listen.
I wasn't there to hurt anybody I just wanted my personal things and I realized I was putting.
I didn't mean to steal anything from anybody and I didn't know I was doing anything illegal I don't confront it -- -- -- -- -- -- Crimea river Arthur and and look a bit don't complain I love the best here in this motion for a new trial is.
My lawyer told me it was OK -- didn't.
First of all this as -- -- it like some big time case your total army and I'm gonna be another arrogant hot dog I mean that.
Is that count and I value your -- -- -- -- stuff about color of -- worse than that his need to think parties.
What he would OJ just said in -- I had his sentencing he said.
If he says his paper that he spoke to yell and he said it's OK to do this.
That's not with the meat of this motion is the meat of his Bojan in my opinion any shot that he -- have how to do with the bad he's claiming.
His attorney never told -- he was offered a plea bargain.
That's a real issue.
It's the only shot of -- -- he had his.
If he was never told the other he had an opportunity to plead guilty.
For a less about a time in jail and the reason for that was because of some sort of a conflict of interest by the lawyer so the lawyer.
Said well I want this to children think -- -- got television.
It should enhance my law practice so -- -- tell my client about a plea bargain well you know what.
Any judge -- any defendant what happened you know when you're trying to but it's got to be that.
Kind of really you know market white egregious stuff to get a good -- is.
Always argued that the reason the Nevada jury convicted him is to make up for what.
Everybody in the world thought he had done in California which was -- -- -- everybody knows -- brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
It you know I was in the courtroom -- -- you testified I mean I've never seen such overwhelming evidence of guilt ever in any trial.
But look that's not an argument think he can prove that the jury convicted me because of the murders in California.
No it's not an argument that he can -- but I'll tell you how it plays out in his case now.
First the property that he says he went back to that room in Las Vegas to get to was not here is that belonged to the -- -- the Goldman's family from the civil judgment.
He headed -- and and it came into the hands of spas sports memorabilia here.
The second issue that you just brought up.
Found not guilty but with overwhelming evidence that he murdered two people and then he goes out and makes overtures that if I did -- this is how I would have done it.
It doesn't sit well with parole boards or judges and the Apollo love.
All because he hasn't admitted any.
What gold eligibility anymore.
I think that robbery but but all the liberal brethren here taking a -- consideration anything Arthur but not about the Parole Board doesn't vote to take away consideration.
And in another case that he was acquitted on whether or not he's remarkable for something that twelve jurors -- -- All of the evidence and they -- the ones who were given the duty to fight game.
A big case proven or not proven probably not proven the brawl or should not be -- that into -- -- case.
-- did the the other end of that sentence -- when I was describe in via.
The culpability and they in the murders in Los Angeles.
That can kind of -- in the background but he hasn't admitted the robbery and they use the gun and the conspiracy in Las Vegas.
If you don't admit guilt.
People really don't have much to.
Did they don't really don't care much about your parole hearings or your previous corporates or or anything else -- you bring to.
Trial you have an admitted -- did anything wrong -- -- fun and as far as the Simpson case and possibly unethical or be based on dividends and he's got a shot.
Nine general -- and look at it okay sensitive.
We're gonna have to leave it that -- -- -- -- -- -- comfortable we'll wait and see what happens in -- we we can talk about it again mark Furman thanks very much front.
And Arthur I Dallas who thinks he's not a hot dog at all thank you for being put it.
Tax in my about that.
