LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Former Los Angeles police detective Mark
Fuhrman is no longer on probation for lying under oath during
the O.J. Simpson trial, his attorney tells CNN.
Fuhrman, who now lives in Idaho, pleaded no contest to felony
perjury after testifying during the O.J. Simpson trial that
he had not used a racial slur in the previous 10 years. He
was placed on three years probation.
Fuhrman attorney Darryl Mounger said Friday he filed a motion
in Los Angeles Superior Court to terminate the probation
because his client posed no threat and "would probably never
get into trouble again." Idaho probation officials supported
the request, Mounger said.
In addition to terminating the probation, Mounger said
Fuhrman's original plea was changed from no contest to not
guilty. After 18 months the felony complaint will be dropped,
