Christopher Darden, who famously prosecuted the O.J. Simpson murder case in 1995, is now defending the man charged with the murder of rapper Nipsey Hussle.
Darden entered a not-guilty plea Thursday on behalf of Eric Ronald Holder Jr., 29, who also faces charges of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.
The judge set bail at $5 million. Darden did not oppose the bail amount, but unsuccessfully attempted to bar cameras from the courtroom during the hearing.
Darden declined to comment following the hearing, according to The Washington Post.
Hussle, 33, whose birth name is Ermias Asghedom, was shot to death Sunday outside his Los Angeles clothing store.
