OJ Simpson Parole Hearing Set for Today-Twitter Has Plenty to Say

O.J. Simpson Reportedly Place in Special Housing Area

Simpson is scheduled for a parole hearing today at the Lovelock correctional facility in Lovelock, Nevada, where the former football star and actor has been doing time since 2008 for the botched 2007 robbery of Bruce Fromong.

Simpson gave a play-by-play recap of his involvement in the 2007 armed robbery for which he was incarcerated, repeatedly claiming that he was simply trying to retrieve his own property. "I've missed a lot of time with those kids". "I've done it as well and as respectfully as anybody can". I've honored their verdict. I've not complained for nine years.

"I thought I was glad to get my stuff back, but it just wasn't worth it".

Dennis Deninger, professor of Sport Management at Syracuse University, said that it would be hard, but not impossible, for Simpson to make money now that he has been released on parole from prison. He hung his head briefly and thanked the board immediately after the announcement.

Dershowitz, meanwhile, said he would advise Simpson to stay out of the public life if he is released, as it would be a "terrible, awful mistake" if he tried to capitalize on the crimes, which have gotten more attention recently because of award-winning documentaries on FX and ESPN. "I'm not a guy who's ever gotten in fights on the street".

Daughter Arnelle Simpson said her father is "remorseful", and she wants him to come home so they can "move forward", adding, "It's been hard".

On Thursday, Simpson appeared before the Nevada Board of Prisons via video conference with hopes of having his parole granted.

"I've done my time, I've done it as well and respectfully as anyone can", Simpson told them.

"I'm not going personally", he said. "It wasn't worth it". If the hearing goes in his favor and he is released, at least one longtime friend believes he will eventually make his way to the Bay area. However, the attorney for the Goldman family, David Cook, told BuzzFeed News that the amount Simpson now owes has grown to more than $50 million.

Should Simpson again be judged a low risk, the board still has the latitude to deny him parole.

Simpson's last parole hearing was in 2013, when he was paroled on counts not related to the use of a deadly weapon.

While Simpson's imprisonment is for an unrelated case, Darden would still like the parole board to ask him if he killed ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, whom Simpson was acquitted of murdering. Of course, that was not Simpson's most notable court appearance. Denial periods, the board's website says, "are generally set at periods of one to three years from the eligibility date of the inmate".
