Simpson: 'Cochran Saved Me From Jail'

THE NAKED GUN star OJ SIMPSON has paid an emotional tribute to late celebrity defence attorney JOHNNIE COCHRAN, who died of a brain tumour on Tuesday (29MAR05) aged 67.

Simpson believes he would be serving time in prison for the 1994 murders of his ex-wife NICOLE BROWN and her friend RON GOLDMAN, if the legendary lawyer hadn't successfully defended him during his well-publicised trial.

Cochran - who has also defended MICHAEL JACKSON and SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS - famously proved a glove found at Brown's murder scene was too small for Simpson's hand, concluding, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."

Simpson admits, "I don't think I'd be home today without Johnnie."
