In an interview with Megyn Kelly on Tuesday, the 73-year-old discussed the highly-publicized 1995 double murder trial — including the former NFL star's first words to him after being acquitted in the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
Shapiro, who was played by John Travolta in the FX crime drama, remembered Simpson whispered in his ear:
"'You had told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right.'"
"[The glove] was a little bit wide in my palm and a little bit wide in my fingers. O.J. Simpson has enormous hands, and I knew that glove would not fit him. No question about it. Wouldn't even be close."
Knowing full well that the glove wouldn't fit, Shapiro recalled instructing his client to "hold up your hand like you're holding the Olympic torch and pull and tug on that glove, because it will not fit."
When Kelly asked if the attorney truly believed Simpson was innocent, he admitted he hasn't talked about it with anyone — including his wife. He continued:
"There's moral justice and there's legal justice. And when that not guilty verdict, uh, was rendered, I felt legal justice was done. As far as moral justice, I haven't discussed it with anyone, including my wife."
Though Shapiro also acknowledged that the legal system isn't always fair, adding:
"Our system of justice is one that's balanced. We hope and pray that innocent people are never convicted. And the price we pay is that sometimes guilty people can and do go free."
Well, that pretty much confirms it. Ch-ch-check out a clip from Shapiro's interview (below)!
