F. Lee Bailey on Why O.J. Was Innocent

In a 46-page document, the former member of the legal "dream team" details his case for Simpson's innocence.

Briefly, from the manuscript:
This is intended to be an outline - a deliberately detailed outline supporting the proposition that the jury reached the correct verdict in the California case of People v. Orenthal James Simpson. But the outline - and the book which will someday follow - is planned to go further. When all of the facts in the case are assimilated and viewed in proper perspective, it should be clear that Simpson was not simply the beneficiary of a reasonable doubt, but in fact totally innocent of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

We have no judicial machinery capable of establishing factual innocence, or what forensic investigators might term ground truth innocence. More than half a century ago, before the infamous military Courts & Boards were abolished by the much enlightened Uniform Code of Military Justice in 1951, a court had two optional verdicts in the case of an accused who was not going to be convicted: “Not Guilty”, often said to be the equivalent of the famous Scottish Verdict “Not Proven”, or “A Complete and Honorable Acquittal”, a formal stamp of approval that said in essence, that the accused had done nothing wrong. An officer who was court martialed, and did not receive the latter form of verdict, was pretty much at the end of his career.
