Michael Shapiro Quoted in Associated Press on O.J. Simpson Case
Litigation Partner Michael Shapiro was quoted in an article titled, “Experts: O.J. Plea Deals Cut Both Ways” that ran in the Associated Press on October 30, 2007. The article discussed the recent plea deals within the O.J. Simpson case, where of the five men charged with Simpson in a hotel-room confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers, three have agreed to plead guilty and testify against him. Mr. Shapiro, who provided television commentary during the 1994 trial of O.J. Simpson when he was acquitted of murder, commented on prosecution offers of plea deals and immunity being a standard way of building a case. According to Mr. Shapiro, “it will come down to whether a jury will believe witnesses who have cut deals to testify.”
