Ron Alvey ©Stars and StripesHeidelberg, Germany. March, 1998: Johnnie Cochran, who gained international fame as the point man of O.J. Simpson's "Dream Team" of attorneys, talks to a Stars and Stripes reporter during a book tour that also featured talks with students at Heidelberg and Ramstein high schools. "To this day, I believe (Simpson is) innocent," he said at Heidelberg. "I knew the facts, and the 12 jurors who sat there for a year of their lives, earning 5 dollars a day, knew the facts, too."
