Inmate No.1027820, also known as Orenthal James “O.J.” Simpson may be released from prison this year. In 2008, Simpson, 69, was convicted of 12 counts, including kidnapping, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Simpson and accomplices were charged with robbing memorabilia collectors Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong of nearly 800 items in a Las Vegas hotel room in November 2007.

The former NFL star could be paroled as early as Oct. 1 for good behavior. He is presently housed at Lovelock Correctional Center in rural Nevada, which is a medium security prison. Simpson has served nearly nine years of his 33-year prison sentence.

In 2013, Simpson was paroled of five charges.

A criminal defense attorney told the Sunday Express, “He’s the kind of person who gets paroled. He has done a significant amount of time and, by all accounts, hasn’t caused any problems.”

He needs to win over four of seven commissioners at his parole hearing, which could occur this summer. He will be measured on an 11-point system that assesses issues such as gang membership, drug and alcohol abuse and age in assessing parole eligibility and each issue reflects values from -1 to +2.

According to Daily Mail, Simpson receives as much as $25,000 monthly, $300,000 yearly, or $2.7 million throughout his prison stay, from his NFL pension.

While he was acquitted of the murder of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson in 1996, Simpson was later found liable for the deaths in a civil suit and was ordered to pay around $33.5 million to the families of Goldman and Brown, which he has not paid off. Creditors can’t go after his pension. Simpson will likely return to his Florida home where he can’t be touched financially due to laws that will protect him.

    This is a common misconception. Sports Illustrated also said he gets that much pension, but then corrected the story to say he really gets about 1/10th that much. It’s just less than 30k a year. Most people would be surprised that NFL pensions are actually pretty modest.

    Well OK OJ. Is not the killer!! Jason simpson committed those murders and now whites look real stupid blaming OJ.. Jason can still be tried too!! Its getting messy cause. Jenell also knew her brother did it she and kato were paid to clean up that murder scene in oj house where kato covered Oj car with a sheet so Jason could ride home .. After he killed them folks .. He ran to oj house on foot .. And woke up kato who called Oj. Jason hands were small he had one glove on LAPD. Just fail to interview him. Not knowing Jason had slept with Nicole brown . And he was jealous Nicole was with Ron Goldman that night instead of the dinner he cooked . Jason was on psychotic meds and had beat his girlfriend up and threaten her prior to murder .. He had the murder weapon in his locker at work. Thats where he got the knife was a sue chef at mezzolina .trained knife specialist… To kill with a know fe is a personal attack !! . He cooked a dinner for nicole daughters his sister birthday and she never showed pissing him off major so he went there killed her and Ron Goldman .. I’m so sure oj regret covering but its a sacrifice a lot of parents would made. He knew his son would be on death row.. And he knew evidence could not convict him due to his celebrity status .. He got in that bronco to make his self seem guilty .. And it worked. In those days johnny Cochran was. Top lawyer and all judges knew him. And honored his request. You have to pay for acquittal in a case like that .. Michael Jackson attorney paid too.. And he had bucks!!! And still do !!!!!!!! Jason may never be tried due to evidence covered up… Yes one man could kill two if he has culinary sue chef traing training and Jason knew exactly which veins to cut on victims he slashed Nicole’s neck!!! i m sure that OJ SIMPSON movie would have been more exciting if Michael strayhan played. OJ. Cuba gooding was horrible choice!!! Oj will try to protect Jason till he die .. Cause I believe they will come after him. Cause whites still want justice for those victims ..and this time arnell will take the stand. Notice she never testified?! Johnny Cochran knew she had to be eliminated from testifying and Jason never took the stand. Brilliant idea that glove could only have fit the killer .. And for sure that was Jason
