Chris Darden, the renowned lawyer of the 1995 O.J Simpson murder trial steps down as Eric Holder’s lawyer.
According to sources, Chris Darden has received numerous death threats to his wife and kids for picking up the case to defend the late rapper’s killer. He appeared as his attorney for the last time on Friday May 10th for a court hearing.
“It’s the same ‘ol thing like the in 1995 except this time folks are upset saying I shouldn’t represent a probable, mentally ill African American man who’s charged with murder. I’ve received threats, my family, my children have been harassed and threatened and it’s really outrageous and I’m really kind of sick of it.”
He ended his interview stating he wished people turned their attention to gun violence instead of intimidating him.
