O.J. Simpson was granted parole during a hearing that took place in Nevada on Thursday. He is now likely to be released from prison as early as October. Simpson served nine years at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada after being found guilty on kidnapping and robbery charges stemming from an incident at a Las Vegas hotel in September 2007 involving memorabilia.
O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing for a 2007 robbery/kidnapping in Las Vegas will take place on Thursday, July 20, and, just like basically every time he’s been in a courtroom over the past 23 years, you can watch it live from your living room.
O.J. Simpson’s name stayed in the news throughout much of 2016 thanks to FX’s hit show American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and ESPN’s excellent documentary O.J.: Made in America. Even though Simpson himself remained locked behind bars in Nevada on armed robbery and kidnapping convictions following a September 2007 incident, he was the topic of discussion for many people over the course of the year. And it sounds like Simpson might be on the tip of everyone’s tongue in 2017, too.
