OJ Simpson's Parole Hearing And Everything You Need To Know...

All eyes will be on one of America's most famous inmates, O.J. Simpson, on Thursday as he appears in front of a parole board from behind bars at a Nevada prison.


If granted parole, Simpson, who was acquitted of all criminal charges in the 1994 killing of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, could be released from prison as early as October.

Simpson, 70, is in prison following an arrest in 2007 during a botched robbery in Las Vegas, when he led a group of men into a hotel and casino to steal his own sports memorabilia at gunpoint. He was charged with a number of felony counts, including kidnapping and armed robbery. He was found guilty and sentenced to up to 33 years in prison.


Simpson's fate will be determined the same day as the hearing.

The commissioners will consider items including: his conduct in prison, participation in prison programs, potential letter of support and an assessment of the risk of re-offending.

He needs four votes from commissioners to get paroled.

If Simpson is granted parole, his earliest possible release date is Oct. 1.
