Simpson's former lawyer Yale Galanter takes the stand

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED May 17, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- O.J. Simpson says that Yale Galanter is the reason he is serving nine to 38 years behind bars for armed robbery and kidnapping.

He claims that his former attorney and friend botched the case.

Friday is the last day of O.J. Simpson's hearing for a new trial.

Yale Galanter was on the witness stand Friday morning.

The former football great testified on Wednesday that Galanter advised him the night before the incident at Palace Station.

He says that Galanter told him that he had a legal right to confront the two men selling sports memorabilia that Simpson says was stolen from him.

Simpson's fate is up to Judge Linda Bell.

There is no word yet on when she will decided whether or not Simpson deserves a new trial.
