A Nevada legal board yesterday decided to grant parole to former football superstar O.J. Simpson, who was convicted in 2008 on multiple counts including assault, kidnapping and robbery following a bungled attempt in a Las Vegas hotel room to retrieve sports memorabilia he claimed had been stolen from him.
Four parole commissioners unanimously voted to release Simpson from prison during the hour-plus long nationally televised hearing, citing the former gridiron great’s low risk of re-offending and release plans, among other factors.

Simpson could be released as early as October 1, when he will have served the minimum of his nine-to-33-year sentence.

Simpson, of course, was acquitted in the double-homicide of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman in 1995.
