-- escorted back in session on the docket today disgraced former NFL all star OJ Simpson back in court trying to win his freedom.
-- is about four years into a 33 year prison sentence.
In 2008 he was convicted for his role in the armed robbery of it's -- sports memorabilia dealer.
In Las Vegas now is trying to convince a judge that he deserves a brand new trial on another shot at freedom.
Claiming that his former lawyer failed to get in the proper defense.
Archive boxes of former prosecutor now defense attorney Mercedes -- -- -- Fox News legal analyst.
And what's happening now in court today it's incredible to -- OJ by the way just that the he looks so different right.
But what's happening in court today is the co counsel in his.
Trial -- -- -- is getting up there and throwing them will lead counsel Yale Galanter under the bus.
In terms of all the terrible -- -- old.
Allegedly did to his client and failed to do and so on tell us Mercedes.
I'll it's amazing because aggressive at the and then Yeltsin hey nothing you wanna -- -- Let's try this case press is like don't need some expert that's what he testified.
Hill but well we really have money for -- so what house of testified that he's listening to these audiotapes that were potentially exculpatory.
A vote today -- -- -- -- is fifteen year old set up for him any sitting -- -- watching his kid's soccer game is listening to audiotapes.
It's obviously there's some sort of financial dispute between grass on Galanter.
And impressive just saying really we didn't really take this very heated yelled and even take it seriously yelled tell me there's a plea bargain I'm not sure -- was communicated to OJ but.
Apologies gonna say if he takes a stand so he -- in this case.
Hey I didn't know there was a plea bargain I I didn't have the right and I council.
But don't count I was going towards the Clinton household Gabriel Grasso gets up there and throws Yale Galanter under the bus and I'm telling you judge that the lead counsel live in his case did not look out for -- for OJ Simpson.
And I mean Crimea river about the fifteen year old -- -- set up the audio equipment through.
Boo -- but -- business about not communicating a plea offer.
Could be -- game changer if it's true mark.
Yet if it's true that's the key.
It's not true and have a name for what OJ's about to do they call it perjury.
To suggest that Yale Galanter a thirty year veteran who interest of disclosure is a friend of mine but I also know as -- South Florida lawyer he's a top attorney.
And defense work 101 is to communicate please to defendants whose gonna say that he didn't do it.
OJ Simpson he should have called this an -- most of for new trial but a motion for a field trip because that's always gonna get out of it one of the.
He's he's supposedly going to suggest to this judge is that what he was convicted for no wait was really.
The murder of Nicole -- Simpson and Ron and and Ron Goldman.
You know that that that he got off of the criminal trial that what this was really about was trying to get justice when many felt justice was not done.
In the 1995 trial.
Does that go anywhere -- It's not -- doesn't but they're suffering some comic energy because the data he was convicted of these crimes is the ten year anniversary of his -- -- of the killing -- both Nicole and Ron Goldman so.
So it that's -- -- their arguments but it's not gonna fly but for -- -- -- -- judge the judge does not gonna look at that if he will seek dig deep into.
What was the advice of counsel because certainly yeah.
It's -- about 33 year sentence for this you know a few minutes in a hotel room -- -- got hurt mark.
And OJ's gonna argue let me tell you judge 33 years was about Nicole Brown Simpson it wasn't about.
That moment with a sports memorabilia guy.
-- good luck proving that this was a kidnapping this was an armed robbery for which was sentenced within the guidelines and sentenced fairly.
These motions generically are rarely if ever won when it does happen.
Is when a defense lawyers will enough fall on the sword for his client and say you know blood.
I didn't communicate things to the client I didn't act appropriately.
Yale Galanter he's not on a -- OJ gonna take the stand market he's gonna say not only did I know you -- this crime.
But yields only that these are my possessions that -- long didn't give you need Boris.
Didn't have a gun didn't have any of the he's gonna -- -- -- that's what he's that's what he's click OK none isn't that there was it there -- -- -- -- A Yale told me upon advice of counsel hey you know what does that really doesn't -- the trial lawyer when all else.
I'll blame the lawyers -- -- that I had -- that that the -- several well I didn't.
Mercedes I didn't know he was gonna say this is OJ Simpson is the same one.
Who got away with murder who said he had nothing to do -- -- who lied about his involvement in the case for which he's serving -- nine to 33 years and -- He isn't words have no value right -- -- events of that blame anybody -- you -- everybody from from the moment Nicole Brown Simpson.
I mean even prior to when she was murdered always -- for the killer still aren't sure.
-- it -- it it is how we get at heart he's gonna lose their degrees as about any event apparently he's been coaching basketball.
Our baseball I think in prison you know and I look I think he's got a son left hand doesn't -- because like -- if you see it looks like he's been spent a lot of time outdoors.
And it looks like prison food is very good.
Now looks very different right and -- put on some weight has an eight about 4050 pound it's been a remarkable transformation.
And that really for the better but OJ Simpson fighting for -- symptom.
His freedom yet again -- thank you both.
