OJ Simpson to Plead for Parole in Carson City

The prison is 439 miles northwest of Las Vegas.

O.J. Simpson, who has spent most of the past decade behind bars after he was arrested for a botched robbery, is set to appear at a parole hearing on Thursday, and if parole is granted, he could be released as early as October.

A parole board will decide Thursday whether to release him from prison after having served the minimum nine years of his armed robbery sentence.

O.J. Simpson has been locked up in Nevada for more than eight years.

LaVergne will be with Simpson at Lovelock Correctional Center during the parole hearing, the Associated Press reports.

Why is O.J. Simpson in jail?

OJ Simpson should learn Thursday if he'll be freed from prison after spending nearly a decade behind bars for a Las Vegas hotel robbery. An unanimous decision would end debate, but if the panel is not unanimous, additional board members would be contacted and asked to weigh in until there are four votes to determine his parole one way or another.

The parole hearing is expected to be a media frenzy.

Just as the current attorney general of the county of Clark, Steve Wolfson, who believes that O. J. Simpson is "an excellent candidate for parole". But he remained ineligible for time still to be served on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and related sentencing issues.

"There's plenty for him to do at that prison and he's always happy, " said Felix.

Making safety first on the 4th
Officials say that if you are going to shoot off fireworks for the holiday they say do it in a safe area and keep kids far away. In previous years the use of illegal fireworks has resulted in 15 to 20 citations being issued over the holiday period.

Simpson was convicted of armed robbery after he tried to steal sports memorabilia from Bruce Fromong and his friend in 2007.

David Cook, long-time attorney for Goldman's father, Fred Goldman, called his client "the elephant in the room" as Simpson's fate is decided.

He was found guilty of charges relating to the theft at gunpoint of sporting memorabilia from a collector.

The former star of the league of american football (NFL) and actor had been sentenced in October 2008 to a sentence of nine to 33 years in prison.

While Cryer says he was one of the first to declare Simpson innocent in the deliberations, he doesn't know that he feels the same way after all these years.

The network's belief that there is still great interest in Simpson is being borne out.

It will take place at 10 a.m. PST on Thursday at the parole board office in Carson City, Nevada.

ESPN - which produced the Oscar-winning 2016 documentary "OJ: Made In America" about the life and crimes of the former football star - will broadcast the trial with analysis from legal experts and sports anchors.

Other factors include an investigation into the inmate's conduct while in prison, a prior criminal history, and whether they are convicted of a violent crime which is the case for Simpson.
