Parole Decides To Release O.J. Simpson From Prison In October
O.J. Simpson shed tears of joy after he was granted parole Thursday after more than eight years in prison in Nevada, having served almost nine years for Las Vegas hotel heist.
The case was successfully a nationally televised hearing that reflected America’s enduring fascination with the former football star. The 70-year-old Simpson, who arrested of armed robbery involving two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room, could be out of the prison as early as Oct 1 after serving almost nine years of a 33-year sentence.

Simpson was convicted in 2008 exactly 13 years after he was cleared of killing his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
Displaying contrition, Simpson told the hearing
"I've done it as well and as respectfully as anybody can. I think if you talk to the wardens they'll tell you. It’s not complained for nine years. All I've done is try to be helpful… and that's the life I've tried to live because I want to get back to my kids and family."
Simpson's daughter, Arnelle, 48, pleaded with the board to release him saying
“We just want him home”
