OJ Simpson to fight for parole

Dozens of media agencies from all over the country are expected to converge on Carson City, Nevada, next Thursday as a parole board will decide if Simpson has served enough time.

Simpson will reportedly appear in front of a Nevada parole board at 1 p.m. EST, via video conference from the Lovelock Correctional Center.

"It really is based on points, " Galanter said.

"He's been a model inmate".

Simpson was convicted after breaking into a Las Vegas hotel room on September 13, 2007, with the help of several other men and stealing sports memorabilia he claimed belonged to him.

The former football star, 70, has served more than eight years of a nine-to-33 year sentence in a Nevada jail after he was found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges stemming from a confrontation with memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas casino.

Simpson is now being held at the Lovelock Correctional Center. But a parole hearing in 2013 bodes well for Simpson, according to Galanter.

The state parole board bases its decisions on points an inmate has accumulated for behavior in prison. In 1995, an estimated 100 million viewers watched on television as the onetime athlete was acquitted in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Simpson is being considered for parole for kidnapping, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and the use of a deadly weapon enhancement. "The law said he didn't do it". Eastern time on Thursday, USA Today reports.

Four members of the six-person parole board will be in the hearing room in Carson City. They already know his record as a prisoner.

McClinton, who pulled a gun during the robbery, testified at Simpson's trial and got probation as part of a plea deal.

Simpson is asking to be set free after almost a decade behind bars.

At his 2013 hearing, he told members, "I just wish I never went to that room". The parole board, for example, has said it will issue a decision Thursday so to minimize distractions.

If granted a release O.J. will be free to walk out of the prison on October 1.

"In terms of what he does with the rest of his life, " Galanter said, "if he was sitting next to me I'd say, 'Listen, be thankful you got out in nine years".
