According to TMZ, O.J. Simpson is close to being a free man. A rep for the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners confirmed a July 20 parole hearing — which means if things go well, Simpson could be released as early as Oct. 1.
In 1995, Simpson was found not guilty of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but his legal troubles didn’t end there. In 2007, he was arrested for multiple felony charges in the armed robbery of a Las Vegas hotel room involving sports memorabilia.
Three days after the incident, Simpson was arrested and charged with two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and coercion.
After being convicted in 2008, he was sentenced to 33 years in prison, with the eligibility for parole after nine years.
The 69-year-old will not attend the hearing in person but will be on a video call from the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.
