O. J. Simpson Granted Parole After Serving 9 Years In Prison
The story of O. J. continues.
Lovelock, NEVADA – O. J. Simpson could be a free man as soon as the 1 October.
A group of four Nevada parole commissioners voted in favor of the former star of the NFL's release after he served nearly nine years in prison for charges stemming from a 2007 Las Vegas robbery. Simpson appeared remotely via video conferencing from the Lovelock correctional Facility in the state of Nevada to the audience.
Simpson, 70 years, gave an account of the case to the parole board on the morning of Thursday (July 20) and was adamant that he had no intention of stealing. He said that he wished that "this would never have happened", according to ABC News.
During the robbery, Simpson and a group of men entered a hotel and casino and stole sports memorabilia at gunpoint. He claimed that mementos and other personal items originally belonged to him.
"The only thing I saw that was on display that wasn't mine was a little softballs, and I made it clear to all of those that are not mine," he said during the hearing. "All I want is my property ... I was not there to rob anyone."
Simpson's original sentence was up to 33 years of age. He will have to comply with several conditions while on probation.
The Hip Hop community came out in droves on Twitter to express their reactions to their audience, and the impending release, including 9th Wonder, Questlove, Chuck D, and Top Dawg Entertainment's Terrence "Punch" Henderson.
