O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing

Thursday, July 20, 2017
Update: O.J. Simpson granted parole, expected to walk out of prison Oct. 1

OJ Simpson's parole hearing is on now! O.J. Simpson may learn whether the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners will decide to free him in the fall or whether he will continue to serve a nine-to-33-year sentence for 12 convictions, including kidnapping and armed robbery, stemming from a 2007 sting operation in which he tried to recover sports memorabilia from two collectors.

Simpson is appearing (via video-conference from prison) in front of four parole board commissioners. He'll speak for 30 to 45 minutes. Then, the board members will leave to deliberate.
If the four parole board members do not unanimously agree, they'll call two other commissioners to vote.

If parole is granted, Simpson would be freed “on or after Oct. 1.” If it is denied, a rehearing date will be set by the panel. Denial periods, the board’s website says, “are generally set at periods of one to three years from the eligibility date of the inmate.”

Do you think he should be set free?
