In the interview conducted after the license granting yesterday a questions was asked about the new book entitled 'America On Trial, Inside The Legal Battles That Transformed Our Nation' by Alan Dershowitz.

In his new book famed attorney Alan Dershowitz recently released findings regarding the 1992 rape trial of Mike that he says show the boxer was innocent of raping a beauty contestant.

Mr. Tyson, who maintained, and continues to maintain his innocence, was surprised by the findings of Mr. Dershowitz, and wishes that there was some way his case could be retried.

Here are some of the revelations Dershowitz exposes in his book: critical information was withheld from the jury; false information was given to the jury; evidence that the Defendant and her relatives lied to the court; false information was given to the jury regarding the Defendant's background. He also maintains that three eyewitnesses were not allowed to testify, whom he believes would have won the case for Tyson; and maintains that at least four of the jurors "urged" the court to give Tyson a new trial.

Regarding the Tyson trial, Dershowitz said, "hard cases make bad law, then the Tyson case proves that unpopular defendants often receive bad justice."

Footages and reactions on the case can be seen in the "Beyond The Glory: Mike Tyson" documentary in the Virtual Theater.
