With OJ Simpson soon to be set free, his lawyer is jumping at the opportunity to bask in the limelight.
Attorney Malcolm LaVergne appeared on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” to say Simpson is “on cloud nine” over being granted parole last week after serving nine years in prison for the armed robbery in Las Vegas.
But LaVergne then smeared one of the true victims in the entire OJ saga, the Goldman family.
Explaining that Simpson has been put in protective custody at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, where he is serving his time, LaVergne told host Jeanine Pirro this was necessary, in part, because they fear Fred Goldman.
Goldman’s son, Ron, was murdered along with Nicole Brown Simpson.
“There is a legitimate concern about threats against him,” LaVergne explained. “I mean, I have to be frank. Fred Goldman is my primary concern and that was actually something that was mentioned at the time this decision was made.”
“I think Fred Goldman himself, after the hearing, said he wished one of the prisoners would knock O.J. in the head,” the attorney charged.
He went on to suggest that while 76-year-old Goldman may not kill Simpson, he could have others assassinate him.
Judge Pirro came to Goldman’s defense, noting that he said he was the wrong guy should someone provide an untraceable high-powered rifle to take O.J. out.
But LaVergne persisted, saying the whole notion was “poisonous,” adding that while Simpson has said nothing about Goldman, “he’s a little bit concerned that these are threats and they’re being taken seriously by me, certainly.”
And the counselor smeared Goldman yet again, even as he acknowledged that he “has been victimized.”
“I mean, Mr. Goldman is closing in on 80,” Lavergne said. “And he may have, you know, obviously, he’s himself, you know, worked up. And so, you know, who knows in his twilight.”
Pirro again came to Goldman’s defense.
“You know what? Don’t even go there,” she said. “I’m taking Fred Goldman’s part on that.”
As for Simpson’s plans when he gets out, Lavergne said there has been plenty of talk about O.J. making $50 million in six months doing a reality TV show, but that he is advising against that.
“I predict that he’s going to be just be playing golf and spending time with his family,” he said.
