OJ Simpson parole hearing to stream live

Thursday, 20 Jul, 2017

In the Las Vegas incident, Simpson maintained that he was only trying to retrieve keepsakes that had been stolen from him, and that he had no idea some of other other men involved were carrying weapons. USA Today reported that Simpson's daughter Arnelle and his sister Shirley Baker will be at the hearing, but it was not known whether they would testify.

Until the Nevada robbery, Simpson's only previous criminal conviction was a 1989 no-contest plea to domestic violence against his wife.

That's the conclusion Sports Illustrated's legal experts Michael McCann and Jon Wertheim drew in February when they assessed the Pro Football Hall of Fame running back's chances of early release from prison.

Simpson, the former National Football League great and movie star, was acquitted in 1995 of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The prison just outside of Lovelock, Nevada, houses O.J. Simpson.

During the proceeding, four state commissioners will question Prisoner No. 1027820, who will be about 100 miles away in Lovelock Correctional Center, via video conference.

O.J. Simpson is expected to explain what he would do and where he would live if he is granted parole after reaching the nine-year minimum of his 33-year sentence. Now, is there an argument that one could make that that background makes him more of a potential public safety threat, which is a potential factor? According to The Daily Mail, Simpson was observed by the corrections officer masturbating in his prison cell which is against the rules.

O.J. Simpson could be a free man after Thursday's televised court hearing in Nevada, where four parole board commissioners will determine his fate, according to CBS News. He was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in connection to the crime and was sentenced to 33 years behind bars with the possibility of parole after nine years.

No other arrests have ever been made in the Nicole Simpson/Goldman murders.

Simpson could have been sentenced to life in prison. "He's really been a positive force in there". Scotto said he visits or talks with Simpson every few months.

The guards didn't just poke fun at Simpson for having allegedly killed two people, they also joked with him over Simpson's appearances in the "Naked Gun" movies as a goofy cop named Nordberg. He said he suffered four heart attacks and severe financial losses as a result of the robbery but later forgave Simpson.

Bruce Fromong, the sports memorabilia seller who was robbed in a Las Vegas hotel room by O.J. "And of course, she said, 'Where'd you get the cookie from?' Well, O.J. doesn't lie".
