It is being reported on June 21, 2017 that former football star O.J. Simpson has a parole hearing set for July 20, 2017. Simpson is serving a 33 year sentence for his part in an armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008. Nine years into his sentence, he is now getting a chance to be paroled.
Simpson was controversially acquitted for murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1995. He was later found guilty in civil court and ordered to pay $33.5 million to the victims families in 1997.
O. J., now 70 years old, shares a July 9th birthday with Amanda Knox. Knox was acquitted of murder, under similar circumstances, but convicted of calunnia in 2015 for the murder of Meredith Kercher.
Simpson is currently incarcerated at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada and will attend his parole hearing in Carson City via video conference. A decision is expected to be made on the same day.
