O.J. Simpson has been serving time at the Loveland Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada since 2008. The judge sentenced him to 33-years on kidnapping and robbery charges, with eligibility for parole after nine years.
Now, it is a possibility that the 69-year old former NFL player may be released later this year.
According to Sports Illustrated, Simpson is scheduled to go before a Nevada parole board as early as July, and depending on the board’s recommendation, he may be able to walk out of the facility as soon as this fall.
Nevada’s parole hearings typically occur around three months before an inmate is eligible for parole, which means that Simpson will be eligible on October 1st. If he is not granted parole, he will remain behind bars until 2022 when he is 75-years-old.
His last sentencing in 2008 occurred on the 13-year anniversary that he was acquitted for the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.
The infamous murder case went on to become a popular series on FX called, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which starred Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson.
