Former lawyer says OJ Simpson knew about guns


The lawyer who unsuccessfully defended O.J. Simpson against armed robbery charges in Las Vegas says his client knew two companions had guns in a 2007 confrontation with memorabilia dealers.

Miami attorney Yale Galanter is testifying Friday at a hearing in which Simpson is seeking a new trial on grounds of ineffective legal representation.

Galanter has been contradicting much of what Simpson testified to earlier this week.

On a key point, Galanter says he decided not to claim Simpson didn't see guns during the incident because Simpson confided to him that he'd asked companions to bring guns.

The 65-year-old Simpson is serving a sentence of nine to 33 years in prison.
