Will the Nevada Board of Parole grant OJ Simpson his freedom?

Will the Nevada Board of Parole grant OJ Simpson his freedom? Will the Nevada Board of Parole grant OJ Simpson his freedom?

After almost nine years in prison, American sports and screen star O.J. Simpson will receive a parole hearing Thursday that could lead to him being released from prison on October 1.

The tweet was published at the same time much of the country waited to see if the disgraced pro-football Hall of Famer would be granted parole after serving almost nine years behind bars for a 2007 armed robbery in Las Vegas.

According to CNN, the parole board score inmates on a number of factors.

Simpson received a majority of votes from the six parole board commissioners to be granted parole.

O.J. Simpson, who in the most famous murder trial in United States history, was accused of stabbing two people to death, said Thursday, "No one has ever accused me of pulling a weapon on them". Simpson hired men, two of whom had guns, to retrieve sports collectibles from two sellers in that Simpson claimed had stolen the items from him a decade earlier.

Simpson in 2013 was granted parole on the armed robbery conviction.

He has since been imprisoned in Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison.

Come back here on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. ET for live updates from Simpson's hearing. Simpson could also want to later stay with his sister in Sacramento, California, Scotto said.

"Make no mistake, I would give it all back, to get these last five years back".

"Simpson's age, the fact that he was given parole on the first sentencing batch, weigh in his favor", Hill said.

Neither prosecutors nor victims of the crimes for which Simpson was convicted in 2008 are expected to oppose his parole.

The board can't take Simpson's past arrest and acquittal into consideration.

"I think he'll say, 'I committed a crime, I've paid my time".

OJ Simpson has been a representation of both good and evil within the American system: he was a much loved athlete who went into movies after retirement but was tried for the murder of his ex-wife and her friend in 1995.

Officials in Florida said in a statement that "if Nevada's request meets all criteria, Florida must accept the transfer".
