A Suggestion for Judy Regan
Judith Regan denies the accusation that she put $3.5 million into the bloodstained hands of OJ Simpson. Here is a simple way for her to allay all doubts:
Let her disclose the name of the trustee of the fund into which she paid the money for the sole and irrevocable benefit of Simpson's children.
After all, she says she paid the money to a "third party" and that she "was told" that the money would go to Simpson's children. Did she ask for any proof of this claim? Or did she just take the murderer's word for it? Regan's version of events sound at best recklessly negligent. At worst, it strongly appears that she connived with Simpson's representative to evade the civil judgment against Simpson by paying a large sum of money into a bank account somewhere beyond the reach of US law.
If the latter, I wonder whether any of NR's attorney readers could enlighten me as to whether Regan might have triggered any legal liability for herself?
But as I said: Regan could set all our minds at ease by offering evidence to corroborate her statement that she paid HarperCollins' money to a fund for the benefit of Simpson's children, not to a numbered account in the Cayman Islands or Dubai.
