OJ Simpson is getting closer and closer to freedom

DOING TIME: O.J. Simpson

O.J. SIMPSON is set to go before the parole board on July 20, and could possibly be released from a Nevada prison as early as October – providing all things go well for the former football player turned inmate.

Simpson has served eight years of his nine to 33-year sentence after being found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and a host of other charges in relation to a conflict with two sports memorabilia dealers inside a Las Vegas hotel.

According to ESPN, The 69-year-old will not appear before the four-member parole board in person and will make his plea via video conference from the Lovelock Correctional Center where he’s serving his sentence.

Simpson’s attorney Malcolm LaVergne said Monday (June 19) if Simpson is granted parole he will most likely try to be under the radar. “If he’s able to get parole, my prediction is he’s going to want to live a quiet life,” LaVergne said.
