On July 20, Football Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson was granted parole on a sentence related to charges from a 2007 robbery case. He is available for release as early as October 1. Simpson was also at the center of perhaps the most famous murder case in American history in 1995, being acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.

Here are some of the best athlete reactions to “The Juice” being granted parole.

The 1968 Heisman Trophy winner was serving a 9-33-year sentence for robbery. Simpson still defends his role in the robbery, as he said he was just retrieving things that had been stolen from him. One of the robbery victims spoke at the July 20 hearing defending Simpson.
