Hi everyone and welcome to the first ever Under Oath podcast. In our first episode, our guest is the legendary trial lawyer, F. Lee Bailey. The interview exceeded our expectations and went an hour so it has to be split into two episodes. Talk about setting the bar high. If you enjoy it half as much as I did, this podcast will be a great success.
Part One: Bailey takes us back to Freehold, New Jersey where he tried a bizarre murder case involving hypnosis, adultery, poisoning, conspiracy and of course a not guilty verdict.
Our show is taped at the Lomurro Law firm in Freehold, NJ so this homecoming was extra special for our first episode. During the second half of Part One, Bailey talks about his second most famous trial, the Sam Sheppard case, which the tv show and movie, “The Fugitive” was based on. This incredible story goes all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States and back to free an innocent man. Bailey tells the story as only he can.
Part Two of our interview focuses on the O.J. Simpson Trial, currently Bailey’s most famous case. He is known as “O.J.’s last defender” and not only does he maintain O.J.’s innocence in Part Two, but he tells us in detail who DID commit the murders… it wasn’t O.J. You have to hear it to believe it.
Bailey was one of the “dream team” lawyers who represented O.J. Simpson in his double murder trial in 1995. Bailey was recently portrayed by Nathan Lane in the FX special “The People vs. O.J. Simpson.” What you may not know is that Bailey was the mastermind behind much of the trial, including the idea to have the prosecutor make O.J. try on the famous glove that “didn’t fit.” He also handles the cross examination and complete dismantling of the State’s lead witness, Detective Mark Furman, exposing him as a racist and liar. If anyone can be credited with O.J.’s acquittal in that trial, it is F. Lee Bailey. Bailey goes into detail about the facts of the case and makes some shocking revelations that our audience had never heard before, despite the rise in O.J. coverage over the last two year. He also talks about having dinner with O.J. this fall after his release from Las Vegas Prison.
Bailey is firmly placed among the greatest trial lawyers in American history. I was shocked
when he agreed to be the first guest, and he did not disappoint. Enjoy his stories on the first ever Under Oath Podcast.
