Sirhan Sirhan , convicted of the 1968 assassination of Robert Kennedy in Los Angeles, could get a new trial based on evidence of his innocence and violations of his rights, say defense attorneys. Sirhan Sirhan’s lawyers say that an expert analysis utilizing computer technology of evidence proves that TWO guns were fired in the RFK assassination and that Sirhan’s gun was not the one that shot Kennedy. Lawyers William Pepper and Laurie Dusek say that fraud was committed in the 1969 trial of Sirhan Sirhan, when the court allowed a substitute bullet to be admitted as evidence for the actual bullet in Kennedy’s neck. The attorneys insist that Sirhan was an MPD pawn of the CIA used as a diversion for the real assassin, adding that Sirhan was blamed for the RFK assassination because he is an Arab. Sirhan Bishara Sirhan , now 67, is a Christian Palestinian, born in Jerusalem, who emigrated to California. As a Southern California resident, Sirhan attended Eliot Middle School, John Muir High School and Pasadena City College before working at the Santa Anita race track. Sirhan Sirhan is currently serving a life sentence at the Pleasant Valley State Prison at Coalinga, in the San Joaquin Valley of Central California. Sirhan was convicted of killing U.S. presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy and injuring five others during the June 5, 1968 shooting at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Defense attorneys Pepper and Dusek are requesting a hearing to present new evidence that alleges a kitchen crossfire inside the hotel. An analysis of an assassination audiotape suggests that 13 shots were fired from two directions, with four shots fired simultaneously from two weapons.
