VEGAS, NV - MAY 17: O.J. Simpson returns to the courtroom after a lunch break during the fifth day of an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court on May 17, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Simpson, who is currently serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in state prison as a result of his October 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping charges, is using a writ of habeas corpus to seek a new trial, claiming he had such bad representation that his conviction should be reversed.

O.J Simpson will be released on parole in October 2017

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.
