"You had told me this would be the result from the beginning," were Simpson's words, Shapiro said. "You were right."
Discussing how he and Simpson's other defense attorneys, dubbed the "dream team," ultimately won the case, Shapiro said. "The prosecution wedded themselves to one knife, one killer theory. There is a strong possibility that more than one person was involved."
"It was a little bit wide in my palm and a little bit wide in my fingers," he said of the gloves used as evidence against Simpson. "O.J. Simpson has enormous hands, and I knew that glove would not fit him."
During the interview, Shapiro would not reveal whether he believed his former client -- who at 68 years old is currently behind bars after a 2008 kidnapping and robbery conviction -- was innocent of the murders. Instead, he insisted his was a "fair verdict."
"There's two types of justice that we deal with in America: There's moral justice and there's legal justice," he began.
"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. 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 a reasonable doubt."
"As far as moral justice, I haven't discussed it with anyone, including my wife," Shapiro said.
