Should O.J. Simpson Be Paroled? (POLL)
Will O.J. Simpson be released from prison? That’s the question many are asking as Simpson will have a parole hearing tomorrow before the Nevada Board of Parole. If Simpson is paroled, his release could possibly come in early October.
Simpson, a former football standout at the University of Southern California and the National Football League, has served nine years in prison at Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison in Nevada.
Simpson was given a nine-to-33-year sentence for his role in a 2007 incident in Las Vegas convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon after an altercation with people Simpson says tried to steal his sports memorabilia.
In 1995, he was also acquitted of murder charges in the slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman in trial witnessed on live TV. Speaking of live TV, ESPN plans live coverage of the parole hearing tomorrow beginning at 12 noon, central time.
