Another O.J. cohort cops a plea deal
A third member of O.J. Simpson’s posse has turned against him, accepting a plea deal to testify against the ex-footballer, the AP reports. Michael McClinton agreed to plead guilty to reduced charges of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in exchange for probation or up to 11 years in prison.
He is slated to testify that he pulled a gun in that Las Vegas hotel room when Simpson and others confronted two sports memorabilia dealers, contradicting O.J.’s account that there were no guns involved. At this point, the only one likely to believe O.J. Simpson didn’t go crazy and threaten to kill Bruce Fromong and Alfred Beardsley is O.J. himself.
