O.J. Simpson Granted Parole After Serving Nine Years In Prison
A Nevada board voted to grant O.J. Simpson parole on Thursday.
Simpson, who was famously acquitted in the 1995 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, has served nine years of a nine-to-33 year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery. The four members of the Nevada Board of Parole responsible for deciding his case voted unanimously in favor of granting parole, according to CNN.
Simpson has been incarcerated at the Lovelock Correctional Facility in Nevada since 2008. He was convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery, among other charges, for a botched 2007 sports memorabilia heist at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. He could be released as soon as October 1, 2017.
