“You told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right,” he recalled.
Following the eight month controversial criminal trial, OJ was found not guilty of stabbing to death his ex-wife Nicole Simpson Brown and her friend, Ronald Goldman
The proceedings was played out in front of the public and viewed by over 100 million people.
Robert, who was portrayed by John Travolta in the recent mini-series, revealed in the interview that he believes more than one person was involved in the killings, saying it was possible a second knife was used.
John Travolta stepped into the defence attorney's shoes.
While many believe OJ was guilty, at the end of the day, the legal practitioner does believe his client received the justice he deserved.
“There’s two types of justice that we deal with, in America: there’s moral justice and there’s legal justice,” he explained
“If you look at it from a moral point of view, a lot of people would say he absolutely did it. I deal in legal justice, as you did as a lawyer, and that’s proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The trial shocked the world.
Two decades later, Robert Shapiro shares his personal views.
Before adding, “And there’s no question in my mind that any fair juror who saw that case from the beginning to the end would conclude there was reasonable doubt.”
