The Nevada Parole Board of Commissioners voted to grant parole to former NFL player O.J Simpson beginning October of 2017 partly based on his good behavior while in prison. He served nine years after being convicted in 2008 for kidnapping and armed robbery involving two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room. He served the minimum nine years of a 33-year sentence. While he showed signs of gratefulness to the Nevada Board, they sternly reminded him that they consistently do not take kindly to parole violations. The now 70 year-old O.J Simpson will be under close scrutiny.
