Online Sportsbook Running Odds on the Outcome of OJ Simpson Parole Hearing

After almost nine years in prison, American sports and screen star O.J. Simpson will receive a parole hearing Thursday that could lead to him being released from prison on October 1.

The hearing for Prisoner 1027820 took place at the Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison in the Nevada desert.

OJ Simpson is set to appear before Nevada's Board of Parole Commissioners later today in a hearing that will decide whether the infamous American figure will be released.

OJ Simpson, the former National Football League star acquitted of murder but later jailed for a failed bid to retrieve sports memorabilia that he said belonged to him, is expected to walk free following a parole board hearing on Thursday. He was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in connection to the crime and was sentenced to 33 years behind bars with the possibility of parole after nine years. He was found guilty by a jury on all 12 charges and given the maximum sentence. Among the mementos and memorabilia he hoped to recover were family photos and his first wife's wedding ring. "He's been a model inmate. He's been an example to others". Simpson was arrested in connection with the two murders and charged in the case.

He's eligible for parole and will state his case to a four member board who will determine if he should be freed or not.

Jackson said the case would not be considered in Thursday's deliberations.

O.J. Simpson speaks with the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners on Thursday.

"If he's not granted parole, I think there's gonna be a lot of scrutiny and they're gonna say "you treated him wrong, you treated him unfairly because he was OJ", said Levenson. The decision came after Simpson apologized for the 2007 armed robbery that led to his imprisonment. He would have almost $3 million from his National Football League pension to his name and a debt of almost 10 times that owed to the Brown and Goldman families following a civil lawsuit. The outcome of the "trial of the century" shocked many.
