OJ Simpson's parole hearing next week

OJ Simpson's parole hearing next week

The public's fascination with Simpson hasn't ebbed since his era-defining arrest (and acquittal) for the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

He was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges. He has already been granted parole on some of the charges in 2013. The man who prosecuted him and put him behind bars, retired Clark County DA David Roger, says he believes Simpson will get parole.

O.J. Simpson watches his former defense attorney Yale Galanter testify during an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court on May 17, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Furthermore, Page Six reports that Simpson will show up via a video feed from the prison he's now incarcerated in, Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada.

According to Yale Galanter, an attorney who represented the former National Football League star during his 2008 trial, Simpson will likely walk free due to his exceptional behavior behind bars.

Judge Jackie Glass sentenced Simpson in 2008 to 33 years in prison, allowing for the possibility of parole after nine years.

O.J. Simpson, behind bars in a Nevada prison for nearly nine years, is eligible for parole Thursday and one of his former attorneys thinks the matter is all but a foregone conclusion that the former football and TV star will be eligible for release on October 1.

When he landed, NME.com reported that he was given someone else's dog instead of his pet pup, Yeeerndamean. United Airlines quickly tracked down Yeeerndamean and found that he had been mistakenly sent to Chicago.

It saw him and a string of accomplices break into a room at gunpoint and steal various O.J. Simpson collectibles from dealers Bruce Fromong and Alfred Beardsley. On Thursday, the board will consider parole on the other charges, including kidnapping, robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon.

But given the notoriety of the Simpson trial and O.J. Simpson, a black man who went unpunished for killing a white woman, can the decision be "non personal"?

The parole board normally issues decisions weeks after hearings, but plans to announce its decision in this case on Thursday. "A decision (on Simpson) is being made at the time of the hearing so that the board's operation can return to normal as soon as possible after the hearing".

Four members of the parole commission will decide his fate, although Galanter said most of that deliberating happens before the hearing. In the rare case of a three-three tie, parole would be denied for six months and a new hearing would be held next January. If the board votes against him, Simpson could stay in prison until 2022.

"In terms of what he does with the rest of his life, " Galanter said, "if he was sitting next to me I'd say, 'Listen, be thankful you got out in nine years".
