What Is OJ Simpson in Jail for? Find Out!

A parole board on Thursday was considering whether to release O.J. Simpson after serving almost nine years of a 33-year-sentence for assault with a deadly weapon and armed robbery.

So how likely is it that the board will grant him parole? Simpson will appear via video conference from two hours away at Lovelock Correctional Center, the isolated medium-security facility northeast of Reno that he has called home for almost nine years, to answer commissioners' questions.

Simpson, 70, was convicted in 2008 on 12 charges of attempted armed robbery and kidnapping stemming from a 2007 confrontation in a casino hotel room over sports memorabilia. He will sit in front of the same four commissioners that heard his 2013 hearing, where he was granted parole on lesser charges relating to the armed robbery, including burglary.

Simpson was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in a highly publicized and viewed event.

"The old saying, 'Do the crime, do the time, '" Fromong told Inside Edition.

He has since been imprisoned in Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison. "O.J. Simpson will be paroled and a free man on October 1st".

O.J. Simpson's long stay in prison will end soon.

"Make no mistake, I would give it all back, to get these last five years back".

"I've known OJ for a long time", said Mr Fromong.

Following Simpson's testimony to the board, his daughter Arnelle Simpson, spoke on his behalf.

The parole board says O.J. Simpson has requested to live in Florida if he is released from prison.

"I wish I had just said "keep it" and not worry about it".

"Motherf*****s think you can steal my s*** and sell it", Simpson said, according to audiotape made by one of the men in his group.

Darden called Simpson a "narcissist" and urged him to "admit [his] sins" in relation to the Brown Simpson and Goldman murders as well.

Despite being found not guilty that year, Simpson was later found responsible for the pair's deaths in civil court, and ordered to pay a fine amounting to millions of dollars.

"I've basically spent a conflict-free life", he said.
