Robert Shapiro slipped on the infamous gloves that were key evidence in the murder trial against O.J. Simpson in order to determine if they would fit the former football player, the high-powered attorney admitted in a rare interview Tuesday.
The revelation was one of many made by Shapiro, 73, whose role as a member of Simpson's defense "dream team" helped to acquit the once-beloved sports idol in the stabbings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in 1994.
"I tried the glove on. It was a little bit wide in my palm and a little bit long in my fingers," Shapiro told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. "O.J. Simpson has enormous hands, and I knew that the glove would not fit him. No question about it. Wouldn't even be close."
