UPDATE: Simpson has been granted parole
O.J. Simpson is having his parole hearing today in front of a Nevada parole board, and if he is granted his release, he could be out of prison as early as July.
Simpson is serving a nine-to-33 year sentence at Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada after attempting to get back pieces of Simpson memorabilia - not for the murders of Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman (a jury found him not guilty of those charges). Simpson and an associate was tried and convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Simpson had claimed he was just trying to get back personal items that had been stolen from him. He said he didn't know the people he brought with them were armed.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer has had two previous parole hearings in 2013 and 2014, and was granted parole for some - but not all - of his charges.
Simpson's parole hearing is being televised live by ESPN and is expected to last until 2:30 pm ET.Back to the Top News Newsfeed
