OJ Simpson getting July 20 parole hearing date in Nevada

OJ Simpson getting July 20 parole hearing date in Nevada

Simpson, who has served almost a decade of a 33-year sentence on burglary and kidnapping charges, was sentenced in a Nevada court in 2008, 13 years to the day after he was found not guilty of the murders in California of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Ron Goldman's family told ABC News earlier this year they can not bear the idea of Simpson as a free man.

Simpson was sentenced in 2008 for the burglary, thirteen years to the day that he was famously acquitted of the California murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.

O.J. Simpson is expected to have a parole hearing next month, and could be released by October if he is granted parole. He was later found liable for their deaths in a civil lawsuit, and ordered to pay $33.5 million to their estates. He was charged with a number of felony counts, including kidnapping and armed robbery.

Most-expensive congressional campaign in history comes to a head in Georgia
Already, more than 140,000 voters have cast a ballot in the run-off, according to the Secretary of State's Office. That total is roughly 2½ times the number of early votes during the April 18 general election among 18 candidates.

Simpson will be joined by his attorney Malcolm LaVergne at the Lovelock Correctional Center in the Nevada desert, where he is being held. At the 2013 hearing he was granted parole on some of his offenses. According to Hill, Simpson's history and age "fit the profile of an inmate who would receive parole at the first opportunity".

If the board decides to release him this time, OJ could be free as early as October. "So does the fact that he was by all accounts a model prisoner, as does any acceptance of responsibility for his actions". According to Simpson, he wasn't trying to rob anyone, but rather to recover property that had been stolen from him. I wish I had never gone to that room.

Several of the associates flipped on Simpson, saying there were guns involved.
