Prison won’t confirm O.J. Simpson was masturbating; parole hearing today

Source: Nevada Department of Corrections

Yesterday, multiple news outlets picked up on the story first published by well-known Daily Mail online. Daily Mail stated in an exclusive that OJ Simpson’s parole may be in jeopardy after he was caught masturbating in his Nevada prison cell by a female corrections officer.”

The article ignited a social media wildfire as other well-known media sources, including the New York Post and Radar Online, among others, repeated the claims by the Daily Mail. Later in the day, celebrity gossip website TMZ.com disputed the claim with a quote from the prison where Simpson is incarcerated. Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada gave TMZ.com the following statement: “It is against Nevada Dept. of Corrections policy to release inmate disciplinary history to the public. It is also against policy to release inaccurate information. No official from our department would have released the information in question.”

The timing of the article by Daily Mail was called dubious by many because Simpson is due to appear before a Nevada parole board today. So far, Simpson has been a model prisoner, and the only violation that is known publicly is over a cookie he was eating that was given to him by a fellow inmate who worked in the prison kitchen.

The saga of O.J. Simpson has become a part of the American psyche. From his now infamous low-speed chase in a white Ford Bronco and the “trial of the century” over the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, many feel that Simpson has yet to be punished properly. Simpson was acquitted in the deaths of his ex-wife and Goldman but found himself in trouble with the law again when he was accused of stealing sports memorabilia that he owned and holding the sellers captive in a Nevada hotel. For that incident, he was given 33 years in prison, and now at the age of 70, he may be out in October 2017.

The family of the late Ronald Goldman won a multimillion-dollar civil lawsuit against Simpson, but in their minds, Simpson still escaped justice in the death of their son. Fred and Kim Goldman, the father and sister of Ronald Goldman, stated during an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos, “Ron never gets to spend his life doing what he wanted to do. We’ll never get to share his life, and the killer will walk free and get to do whatever he wants. … We’ll “probably never see that … never get the justice.”
