Walter Alexander, the first person jailed (and since released) in the O.J. Simpson case appeared on CBS and ABC this morning with his attorney by his side. Last night, a tipster suggested that Alexander’s appearance on the morning shows might have been done with conditions. Sources in the know at both networks say that’s not the case; no payments were made, no licensing agreements entered into.
And during The Early Show interview, Alexander may have said too much about where he was the night of the alleged burglary; a fact Alexander’s attorney tried more than once to prevent his client from admitting, during an appearance last night on Larry King.
Walter Alexander: I was there and that was [Simpson’s] voice.
Julie Chen: and can you say — tell me what you were thinking when you were there and you heard O.J. Simpson saying those things?
Attorney Robert Rentzer: he’s actually gone one step further than we anticipated by telling you he was there. There doesn’t place him in the room, however. There places him at the hotel and I would prefer not to place him the room and have a conversation in that regard.
And that, my friends, is what lawyers are for.
