((Faced with a felony charge of perjury and the possibility of a gruelling trial former Los Angeles Police Detective Mark Fuhrman opted for a plea bargain instead:
By pleading no contest to the charge that he lied on the stand during the trial of O.J. Simpson, Fuhrman gets three years probation, a felony conviction on his record, and he must pay a 200 dollar fine. The trade off is he will spend no time in jail. Judge John Ouderkirk accepted the agreement.
Fuhrman's testimony that he had not said the word nigger in ten years was contradicted by 4 defense witnesses during the Simpson trial. Among them screenwriter Laura Hart Mckinney who testified Fuhrman said the word 41 times during her interviews with him for a screenplay.
Fuhrman's indictment comes as jury selection in the O.J. Simpson civil trial plods along legal analysts say it is not good news for the plaintiffs.
LAURIE LEVENSON/CBS NEWS LEGAL CONSULTANT: THIS IS THE WORST POSSIBLE TIMING FOR THE GOLDMANS. THE JURORS ARE GOING TO KNOW THAT FUHRMAN WAS INDICTED.
