Get More: Local attorney speaks on OJ Simpson's parole hearing

20 Juillet 2017

Steve Wolfson, the current Clark County district attorney, told AFP he believes Simpson "makes an excellent candidate for parole".

Wolfson said his wife, retired Judge Jackie Glass, presided over Simpson's Las Vegas trial, sentencing him to a term of nine to 33 years in prison.

OJ Simpson could be a free man. LaVergne grew up in Texas, graduated in 2000 from Cornell Law School in NY, and has practiced general practice law in Las Vegas since 2006.

It is unclear if Simpson still receives a football pension that was once estimated at $19,000 a month, but even if he did, that money would be "near impossible" to reach an amount to satisfy for the civil judgment, Cook added. The 2007 heist that Simpson was convicted of involved a sports memorabilia dealer at a Las Vegas hotel.

But Michael Wright, the family's spokesman, said they felt apprehensive about, "how this will change their lives again, should Simpson be released".

"The old saying 'done his time, ' " said Fromong. Simpson's other children are Jason Simpson, 47, of Atlanta, daughter Sydney Simpson, 31, and Justin Simpson, 28, both of Florida.

The hearing also comes just one year after ESPN documentary OJ: Made in America and FX miniseries The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.

OJ Simpson has spent the last nine years behind the walls of the isolated Lovelock prison in Nevada. He vowed to remain dogged in seeking to collect on the judgment against Simpson.

The board previously granted Simpson parole in 2013 on his burglary count, two counts of kidnapping, and two counts of robbery.

The board and any witness to testify will sit here, in Carson City.

"O.J. said, for me, he'd charge me nothing", Arthur Bernstein, the man Simpson leveled in the scene in The Lemon Twist, told USA TODAY Sports.

Stewart was sentenced to seven-plus to 27 years in state prison. If it is denied, a rehearing date will be set by the panel.

His bid for a new trial in the case was rejected in 2013, but he was granted parole that same year on some of the charges, based on good behavior.

Simpson expressed regret over the 2007 crime, at a parole hearing four years ago. Instead of waiting and retreating to his cell like the other inmates did, O.J. chose to eat his cookie at that moment and was caught by a corrections officer. One board seat is vacant, with a new appointee yet to be sworn in.
