OJ Simpson could be released on parole as soon as Monday



O.J. Simpson could be released on parole as early as Monday, a prison spokeswoman told the Associated Press.

The 70-year-old former NFL player, who was acquitted in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, is currently serving a sentence at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center for his 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping convictions.

Simpson was initially sentenced to up to 33 years in prison, but won parole in July for good behavior.

Earlier this year, a state parole board set Oct. 1 as the day he becomes eligible for release.

State Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast told the New York Daily News that Simpson will likely be transferred to High Desert State Prison to meet with parole officers before his release.

Keast added that she will provide video of the release to the public.

"We've been trying to keep things as normal as possible," she said.

Once Simpson is released, he will be supervised by the state Division of Parole and Probation until Sept. 29, 2022.
