O.J. Simpson will be a free man after the Nevada Board of Parole granted him parole from this 33-year sentence for armed robbery after just nine. Click through Radar’s gallery to find out when he will be released, and what rules he must follow to avoid being thrown back behind bars.
Simpson, 70, thanked the panel and was relieved to be told that he would be released from prison. He was ordered to serve the minimum jail sentence first, and the parole and probation office said that his release would come on or after October 1, 2017.
The former NFL star, who was acquitted of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1995, would be required to report monthly to his parole officer, and was told he could not move out of state without permission.
Simpson requested to move to Florida upon his release. “I could easily stay in Nevada but I don’t think you guys want me here,” he joked during the hearing.
Another condition of Simpson’s parole is he was not allowed to drink alcohol or take drugs, and would have to submit to drug alcohol tests.
Simpson told the board he would be able to comply with their rules. “I haven’t drank in nine years,” he said during the hearing. “Most of my life I’m not a guy who lived a criminal life. I’m a pretty straight shooter. I have no problem, none whatsoever living with those conditions.” The panel unanimously agreed to grant Simpson parole.
