Chris Darden is once again on the wrong side of history (depending on how you look at it). The man responsible for prosecuting, and ultimately losing, the case against O.J. Simpson is now defending accused Nipsey Hussle murderer, Eric Holder.
Chris appeared in court Thursday, where Holder’s was also present, and entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Eric’s bond was set at $5 million and he will be back in court May 10. The 29-year-old gang member has been charged with 1 count of murder, 2 counts of attempted murder and 1 count of possession of a firearm by a felon. Holder faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted.
However, oddly enough, the not guilty plea wasn’t the most alarming part of this scenario, it was the fact that Chris was representing Holder. Rapper Meek Mill was one of many who was disgusting by Darden’s decision.

Chris Darden as the kids say is "clout chasing". He knows this is a high profile case so he wants the media attention. Representing a man who murdered a community leader and businessman is such a slimy way to get a headline.

While many expressed their disdain for Darden, other’s were perplexed over how Holder could even afford the infamous attorney in the first place.
How is he able to afford Chris Darden?

I’m confused, did the court appoint Chris Darden? How the fuck can Eric Holder afford Chris Darden? https://t.co/Nnmma1SjJa

My best friend & I are in a huge fight over Chris Darden representing the shooter.
My BFF is saying Chris Darden took this case pro bono to get his name back out there because nobody’s checking for him since the OJ case..
EYE say he was retained by whoever’s behind the murder
