Marcia Clark was lead prosecutor on the 1994 O.J. Simpson murder case. On a special edition of Dateline NBC, Clark and others involved in the case are interviewed and discuss the case 22 years later. Clark reveals: “I did not want him [Simpson] to try on the evidence gloves. I never did.” That wasn’t her call she said, repeatedly. It was her fellow prosecutor Christopher Darden’s call. She elaborated about Darden’s decision to get Simpson to try on the gloves: “I was miserable the moment Chris said, ‘no, I’m doing this.’”

Clark says she didn’t say “I told you so.” When Darden apologized to her afterwards, she said she told him, “That’s okay. If that is going to lose the case for us, we weren’t going to win anyway.” Clark added, “There was no way to reach that jury, there was no way to make them believe. There really wasn’t.” Dateline NBC will air the special episode “5 Things the Jury Never Heard” in the case against OJ Simpson on March 6 at 9pm.
