Simpson Lawyer: Free OJ

Posted: Updated:

By Ted Rowlands (CNN)-After almost five years in a Nevada prison there's a chance OJ Simpson may soon be a free man.

"I have a really good feeling. I will be so disappointed if we don't get relief because I think he deserves it."

SIMPSONS ATTORNEY'S, PATRICIA PALM AND OZZIE FUMO, BELIEVE THE EVIDENCE THEY OFFERED DURING A WEEK LONG HEARING THIS SPRING. WARRANTS A NEW TRIAL FOR SIMPSON WHO IS CURRENTLY SERVING A 33 YEAR SENTENCE FOR HIS ROLE IN WHAT PROSECUTORS SAY WAS AN ARMED ROBBERY AND KIDNAPPING OVER SPORTS MEMORABILIA.

SIMPSONS ATTORNEY'S BELIEVE THAT O.J.'S  LAWYER AT TRIAL, YALE GALANTER,  HAD A CONFLICT OF INTEREST, AND THEY THINK THE MURDERS OF HIS WIFE NICOLE AND RON GOLDMAN INFLUENCED THE TRIAL IN LAS VEGAS.

"Well obviously they did because the state kept mentioning the Goldman's name so I think it had to have an adverse effect."

THE BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES SHOW HOW MUCH OF A TOLL PRISON HAS TAKEN ON THE FORMER FOOTBALL STAR.

THERE'S SPECULATION THAT SIMPSON IS ILL.

BUT HIS ATTORNEYS SAY HE'S FINE, CONSIDERING WHAT HE'S BEEN THROUGH.

"My personal opinion is that every year in prison takes seven years off your life."

(nats)

THERE'S ALSO SPECULATION THAT SIMPSON, SEEN HERE IN THE MOVIE NAKED GUN, WANTS TO REVIVE HIS ACTING CAREER.  

HIS PENSION RESERVES ARE GONE, SPENT ON HIS VEGAS DEFENSE ACCORDING TO COURT TESTIMONY.

WHILE ACTING, OR A REALITY SHOW MIGHT BRING IN SOME CASH, HIS ATTORNEYS THINK IF HE GETS OUT, O.J. SIMPSON WILL DO HIS BEST TO STAY CLEAR OF THE LIMELIGHT.

(Reporter Standup): IF SIMPSON IS GRANTED A NEW TRIAL, HE'LL LIKLEY BE A FREE BECAUSE PROSECUTING HIM AGAIN WITH THE SAME RESULTS WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT. THE DECISION IS UP TO THE JUDGE THAT SAT THROUGH THAT SPRING HEARING. AND THAT DECISION IS EXPECTED TO COME DOWN ANY DAY.
