So OJ will be out in October. I'm in support of his parole solely because 'bait and switch' in applying a sentence for one acquitted offense to a convicton of another robs the justice system of its integrity.

I watched some of his testimony before the parole board. Nine years in prison haven't changed him. He's still a vain, arrogant narcissist. He really believes his 'victims' asked for what they got, and, were in the path of his righteous indignation.

Ron Goldman's father and sister, and the Browns, won a $33 million dollar civil settlement against Simpson. They've seen less than 1% of it. Simpson was worth millions, where did all the money go. It's locked up in off shore trusts, or assets that can't be touched by lawsuits like primary residence and pensions. And Simpson is still worth milllions. His NFL Pension is about $25M per month.

We likely won't hear much of him after he leaves prison. 70 year olds can usually behave themselves sufficiently to avoid breaking parole, especially rich ones. He'll become a golf junkie and return to his party boys ways, as much as age and parole restrictions permit. And Nicole and Ron will continue a mouldering in their graves.

I heard a radio commentary on this. The parole board has a specific set of parameters with which to work, in order to grant or deny parole. The murders did not affect the judgment. In part, because he was charged, but not convicted.

One of the lawyers on the show said one of the main things that determines eligibility is whether or not the prisoner is likely to re-offend. He has to accept that what he did was wrong and not argue with the board when asked questions about the crime. They would be looking for indications that he believes he was justified in the actions he took which landed him in jail. They would be looking for remorse.

His behaviour while incarcerated and any attempts to better himself (furthering one's education for example) are also important factors.

Every member of the board was aware of his past, but, in the words of the panelist, they would have to block that from their minds. They would judge based on state requirements.

Parole board didnt consider O.J. Simpsons spouse abuse case
Conviction wasn't listed in FBI's crime data clearinghouse

CARSON CITY, Nev. Nevadas parole board says it didnt consider O.J. Simpsons 1989 conviction for misdemeanour spousal abuse when it granted his release because it wasnt listed in the national clearinghouse of FBI crime data.
The disclosure comes as a Nevada lawmaker proposed legislation Tuesday to require the board to consider an inmates domestic violence history before approving parole.
The parole board said in July it wouldnt consider a civil judgment that found Simpson liable for the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.
A board spokesman says the domestic abuse case wasnt included in a report from the National Crime Information Center.
Simpson is expected to be released from prison in October, possibly as soon as Sunday.

O.J. Simpson could be out on parole Monday

LAS VEGAS O.J. Simpson could be released on parole as soon as Monday in Las Vegas under a plan being finalized by Nevada officials, a prison spokeswoman said Wednesday.
The process culminating in freedom for the former football player, actor and TV pitchman is in motion, but must be approved and documents must be signed, state Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast said.
Meanwhile, the 70-year-old Simpson remains at Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada awaiting transfer to High Desert State Prison outside Las Vegas, where he would be freed, Keast said.
Simpsons release is expected after nine years behind bars for his 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping convictions following a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.
He was sentenced to up to 33 years, but won parole in July due to good behaviour and other credits earned in custody.
A state parole board set Sunday, Oct. 1, as the date Simpson becomes eligible for parole. Once released, he will be supervised by the state Division of Parole and Probation until Sept. 29, 2022.
His release could come on the first business day after Oct. 1 because state probation officials dont handle releases on weekends, said Keast, who said she intends to provide video to the public of the release.
Weve been trying to keep things as normal as possible, she said.
High Desert State Prison is located in Indian Springs, about 45 miles northwest of Las Vegas. It is the main processing centre for inmates from southern Nevada.
A close Simpson friend, Tom Scotto, said Simpson is scheduled to be released shortly after Oct. 1. Scotto cast doubt on the Monday release date, saying officials were keeping plans secret.
Scotto has offered to have Simpson live with him in Naples, Florida. Such a move would require an agreement between parole departments in Nevada and Florida.
Florida has not received any transfer paperwork from Nevada, said Ashley Cook, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Corrections.
Nevada Parole and Probation Capt. Shawn Arruti, who is involved in Simpsons release, declined to comment.
Malcolm LaVergne, Simpsons lawyer in Las Vegas, didnt respond to questions about a release plan.
Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of murder charges in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
He was found liable for the killings in civil court two years later and ordered to pay the victims families $33.5 million.
David Cook, attorney for the Goldman family, said Wednesday the judgment amount has nearly doubled with interest over the years to more than $65 million. He said the family will continue to seek payment.

O.J. Simpson to get Apple's latest iPhone after release: Lawyer
Ken Ritter, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
First posted: Friday, September 29, 2017 11:15 AM EDT | Updated: Friday, September 29, 2017 02:26 PM EDT
LAS VEGAS O.J. Simpson will live in Florida following his parole from a Nevada prison where the former football star and celebrity criminal defendant has been held for the past nine years after a robbery conviction, his lawyer said Friday.
Attorney Malcolm LaVergne didnt specify where Simpson would live in Florida, although Tom Scotto, a close friend who lives in Naples, Fla, has offered his home.
Hes going to Florida, LaVergne said. Theres no doubt hes going to Florida.
Scotto didnt immediately respond to telephone, email and text messages.
A Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman, Ashley Cook, said her agency has not received a transfer request or documents about Simpson.
Simpson becomes eligible for release Sunday but LaVergne said he doesnt know where or when it will happen.
He expects to learn more when Simpson notifies him that he is being moved from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada.
Release plans are in motion but need to be finalized for Simpson to be freed, perhaps as early as Monday in Las Vegas, Nev., prisons official Brooke Keast said.
Citing safety concerns, Keast said Friday the plans were not being made public.
LaVergne said he will begin pressing for answers if Simpson is not free by Oct. 8.
He said he spoke with Simpson by telephone on Thursday, and he is excited about his pending freedom.
Hes really looking forward to the simple pleasures, LaVergne said. Seeing his family on the outside, spending time with them, eating food thats not packaged.
Simpson wants to eat steak and seafood and get a new iPhone, LaVergne told ABCs Good Morning America
Simpson won parole in July after serving nine years of a possible 33-year sentence for his 2008 conviction on armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges.
The conviction came after a botched effort to retrieve items that Simpson insisted were stolen after his acquittal in the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman in Los Angeles.
Simpson was found liable for their deaths in a civil case in 1997 and ordered to pay the victims families US$33.5 million.
A Goldman family attorney said the judgment amount has nearly doubled with interest over the years to more than $65 million, and he continues to seek payment.

O.J. Simpson released from prison in Nevada
Ken Ritter, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS Former football legend O.J. Simpson became a free man Sunday after serving nine years for a botched hotel room heist in Las Vegas that brought the conviction and prison time he avoided in the killings of his ex-wife and her friend after his 1995 acquittal in the trial of the century in Los Angeles.
Simpson was released at 12:08 a.m. PDT from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada, state prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast told The Associated Press. She said she did not know the driver who met Simpson upon his release and didnt know where Simpson was immediately headed in his first hours of freedom.
I dont have any information on where hes going, said Keast, who watched as Simpson signed documents and was let go.
Her department released video on social media of Simpson being told to come on out by a prison staffer, exiting through an open door. He could be seen responding OK as he left, wearing a ball cap, denim jacket, jeans and white tennis shoes.
Tom Scotto, a close Simpson friend who lives in Naples, Florida, said by text message that he was with Simpson following his release. Scotto didnt respond to questions about where they were going or whether Simpsons sister, Shirley Baker of Sacramento, California, or his daughter, Arnelle Simpson of Fresno, California, were with him.
The three had attended Simpsons parole hearing in July at the same prison where Simpson spent his prison term and was released just minutes into the first day a parole board set for his possible release.
Simpson has said he wanted to move back to Florida, where he lived before his armed robbery conviction in Las Vegas in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers.
But Florida prison officials said documents werent filed, and the state attorney general says she doesnt want Simpson to live in the state.
Neither Simpsons attorney, Malcolm LaVergne in Las Vegas, nor state Parole and Probation Capt. Shawn Arruti, who has been handling Simpsons case, immediately responded to messages.
Keast said the dead-of-night release from the prison about 90 miles (145 kilometres) east of Reno, Nevada, was conducted to avoid media attention.
We needed to do this to ensure public safety and to avoid any possible incident, Keast added, speaking by telephone. She spoke from Lovelock, where she said she witnessed Simpson signing documents to be released.
The 70-year-old Simpson gains his freedom after being granted parole at a hearing in July. Unlike the last time he went free, 22 years ago, he will face restrictions up to five years of parole supervision and hes unlikely to escape public scrutiny as the man who morphed from charismatic football hero, movie star and TV personality into suspected killer and convicted armed robber.
Simpson was looking forward to reuniting with his family, eating a steak and some seafood and moving back to Florida, LaVergne said recently.
Simpson also plans to get an iPhone and get reacquainted with technology that was in its infancy when he was sent to prison in 2008, his attorney said.
The Florida Department of Corrections, however, said officials had not received a transfer request or required documents, and the attorney general said the state didnt want him.
The spectre of his residing in comfort in Florida should not be an option, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement on Friday. Our state should not become a country club for this convicted criminal.
Simpson lost his home near Miami to foreclosure in 2012. But two of his children, Justin and Sydney, also live in Florida.
He could live at least temporarily in Las Vegas, where a friend let Simpson use his home for five weeks during his robbery trial.
His five years of parole supervision could be reduced with credits for good behaviour.
Its a new chapter for the one-time pop culture phenomenon whose fame was once again on display when the major TV networks carried his parole hearing live.
He told officials that leading a group of men into a 2007 armed confrontation was an error in judgment he would not repeat.
He told the parole board that he led a conflict-free life, an assertion that angered many who believe he got away with killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman in Los Angeles in 1994.
Simpson was once an electrifying running back dubbed Juice who won the Heisman Trophy as the nations best college football player for USC in 1968 and became one of the NFLs all-time greats with the Buffalo Bills.
Handsome and charming, he also provided commentary on Monday Night Football, became the face of Hertz rental-car commercials and built a movie career with roles in the Naked Gun comedies and other films.
Simpson fell from grace when he was arrested in the slayings, after a famous slow-speed Ford Bronco chase on California freeways. His subsequent trial became a live-TV sensation that fascinated viewers with its testimony about a bloody glove that didnt fit and unleashed furious debate over race, police and celebrity justice.
A jury swiftly acquitted him, but two years later, Simpson was found liable in civil court for the killings and ordered to pay $33.5 million to survivors, including his children and Goldmans family.
He is still on the hook for the judgment, which now amounts to about $65 million, according to a Goldman family lawyer.
On Sept. 16, 2007, he led five men he barely knew to the Palace Station casino in Las Vegas in an effort to retrieve items that Simpson insisted were stolen after his acquittal in the 1994 slayings. Two of the men with Simpson in Las Vegas carried handguns, although Simpson still insists he never knew anyone was armed. He says he only wanted to retrieve personal items, mementoes and family photos.
He went to prison in 2008, receiving a stiff sentence that his lawyers said was unfair.
If the nations Simpson obsession waned for a while, it resurged last year with the Emmy-winning FX miniseries, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and the Oscar-winning documentary O.J.: Made in America.

We'll have to ask a lawyer about this, but I believe that OJ moved to Florida and the Goldmans do not have their money because Florida laws do not allow personal assets to be seized from outside jurisdictions. Or something along those lines. I heard that CNN lawyer, Jeffrey Toobin, talking about this several years ago.

That would also be the reason his kids have bought properties in Florida. The Goldmans (and anyone else) cannot get their hands on OJ's possessions.

He served 9 years of a 33 year sentence. Now 33 years for your first ever conviction of robbery with no prior record is a little above the norm. His sentence was totally based upon the aquittal for murder....no doubt in my mind. Someone if his position without the murder trial in his past would most likely got probation or less than 1 year in jail for what he was convicted of.

Absolutely correct, Nick. What's happened is the State was trying compensate for what they saw as being a mistake in the murder trial. You can't do that sh*t.............I don't think there's any doubt about his involvement in the murders BUT law also says you can't be penalized for double jeopardy. He got away with one but that wasn't his screw up. I wonder if he's going to sue now.

Most likely he will make a small fortune in the interview. Heck, even Amanda Knox made a fortune after her murder spree so this should be no problem for anyone.

Yeah she was ever soooooo innocent that she tried to frame an innocent black man for that crime. He spent three weeks in prison and his life was repeatedly threatened by gangsters in a land known for having murderous gangsters. His life was ruined so badly that his business fell apart and he had to leave the country thereafter.

Today "Foxy Knoxy" is profiting quite well from her crime. Funny how so many people object to OJ profiting but have no similar objection to her enjoying all that wealth.
