O.J. Simpson’s ex lawyer claims he can prove his innocenceBy ANI

NEW YORK - Former American football star O.J. Simpson’s former lawyer says that he can prove his innocence.
In a 46-page document posted on the website of his consulting firm, F. Lee Bailey wrote that he had additional evidence that would finally erase all doubt about the Heisman trophy winner’s innocence, the New York Post reports.
“The facts offered here are either largely unchallenged, or much more persuasive than those contrary views which have been argued,” he promised.
While Simpson was acquitted by a criminal jury, he was later found guilty in a civil trial and ordered to pay millions to the family of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.
Bailey was on his defense team in the 1995 criminal trial and said he may turn the document into a book about the experience and his former client.
The 77-year-old lawyer says that despite what the public may believe about his former client, Simpson wasn’t the type of person to use “raging violence to solve his emotional problems.” (ANI)
