20/20 digging into OJ Simpson parole hearing in Nevada

20/20 digging into OJ Simpson parole hearing in Nevada

Ron Goldman. He was found liable during a 1997 civil case for the killings, but his prison time is for the Las Vegas robbery, not for the murders.

He was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges. Simpson has already served his minimum sentence. Galanter called that "the clearest indicator" Simpson will be granted parole on the remaining counts Thursday.

Felix, now retired and the author of Guarding The Juice, said Simpson is fearful that the media attention surrounding the parole hearing could hurt his chances of getting out.

The hearing will be streamed from Lovelock Correction Center, where Simpson has been since 2008.

According to Yale Galanter, an attorney who represented the former National Football League star during his 2008 trial, Simpson will likely walk free due to his exceptional behavior behind bars.

O.J., who has been behind bars in a Nevada prison for nearly nine years, is eligible for parole Thursday.

Kirk Cousins Open To Long-Term Deal With Washington In 2018
Kirk Cousins will not rule the Washington Redskins , even if both sides can not come to an agreement by the deadline. During the period that Cousins is under the franchise tag, the Redskins have exclusive negotiation rights.

Simpson, with the help of several other men, broke into a Las Vegas hotel room on September 13, 2007, and stole at gunpoint sports memorabilia that he said belonged to him. Simpson, who is now serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in state prison as a result of his October 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping charges, is using a writ of habeas corpus to seek a new trial, claiming he had such bad representation that his conviction should be reversed. More than a year later, on October 8, 2008, he was found guilty by a jury on all 12 charges. Simpson is "sweating" that his July 20 parole hearing will be an unprecedented media circus, and that officials could deny his release because of the press scrutiny.

Simpson will have an opportunity to address the board by video conference as he did during the 2013 hearing. The parole board, for example, has said it will issue a decision Thursday so to minimize distractions.

Former Chairman Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners Thomas Patton said that the board's current options were to "grant release on parole, deny parole at this time and reconsider O.J. for parole at a later date, or deny parole and require O.J.to serve the remainder of his final sentence".

Four members of the six-person parole board will be in the hearing room in Carson City.

"My advice to him would be to live out the rest of your life", the lawyer said.
