O.J. Simpson is currently in prison in Carson City, Nevada. He is 9 years deep into a 33 year sentence, which means that he will soon be up for parole. His hearing is scheduled for this Thursday.
Simpson is a former pro footballer who played in the NFL for the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49’ers.
In 1995 he was SHOCKINGLY found NOT GUILTY of the murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson, as well as her friend Ron Goldman. He was arrested in 2008 and charged with the kidnapping of two sports memorabilia collectors, and robbing them at gun point in a Vegas hotel room. He was also charged with armed robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon. He was subsequently sentenced to life in prison.
If paroled, he will become a multi-millionaire thanks to his NFL pension. If at least 4 of the 7 commissioners at the hearing vote in his favor for parole, he will be eligible for release on Oct 1st.
