Attorney Robert Shapiro, who defended O.J. Simpson in his 1995 murder trial, has finally revealed what his client whispered to him after Simpson was pronounced not guilty of killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
People magazine reports that Shapiro made the revelation Tuesday night in a televised sitdown with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly for her prime-time special “Megyn Kelly Presents.” Shapiro said Simpson whispered: “You had told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right.”
Shapiro also offered his opinion on where the prosecutors went wrong in their approach to the so-called “trial of the century.” He said the team erred by focusing on Simpson as the only suspect rather than casting a wider net.
“The prosecution wedded themselves to one knife, one killer theory,” Shapiro told Kelly, a former lawyer. “There is a strong possibility that more than one person was involved.”
