Nevada Board of Parole Grants OJ Simpson His Freedom

Nevada Board of Parole Grants OJ Simpson His Freedom

Simpson was sentenced to nine to 33 years in prison in 2007 for a kidnapping, armed robbery, and other charges stemming from an incident in a Las Vegas hotel room. "I've not complained for nine years".

According to CNN, the parole board score inmates on a number of factors. They will consider factors including "Simpson's age, whether his conviction was for a violent crime, his prior criminal record and his plans after release" when deciding whether to grant him further parole, the board has said. Prosecutors said Simpson used guns, threats and force to take photographs and other items from two sports memorabilia dealers. Simpson has been imprisoned since 2008 over an armed robbery and kidnapping case, but he and many legal analysts think that the board will vote to release him.

David Elkouby, the owner of a company that specializes in athlete and celebrity autographs called The Hollywood Show, told TMZ this week that Simpson would be an extremely popular attraction at an autograph signing event.

The hearing is set to begin at around 1:00 p.m. from Lovelock Correction Center in Nevada. "But that 1994 case involving O.J. Simpson can not be a part of this parole hearing, as a matter of law".

OJ Simpson could walk out of prison in just a few months.

Simpson appeared via video teleconference before four members of a seven-member parole board.

"I've known OJ for a long time", said Mr Fromong. "I had no intent to commit a crime", Simpson said during his closing remarks.

Simpson's oldest child, Arnelle Simpson, spoke about her father's "true character" in a closing statement at Thursday's hearing and was emotional as she said he was her "best friend" and "rock".

Simpson also stated that he'd spent a "conflict-free" life.

.

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.

Despite being found not guilty that year, Simpson was later found responsible for the pair's deaths in civil court, and ordered to pay a fine amounting to millions of dollars.

Said the dealer had pictures of his children, his mother's photo albums and wanted those things back.
