O.J. Simpson could be stepping straight into the spotlight if he walks free this year!
As RadarOnline.com readers know, the 69-year-old is reportedly set to be released from prison in October, exactly nine years into his 33-year sentence.
The former football legend — who was acquitted in 1995 of the brutal stabbing murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman — was convicted in 2008 for armed robbery and other charges. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years imprisonment, with a minimum of nine years without parole at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada.
Now, according to reports, TV networks are fighting over Simpson in a bid for America's juiciest possible show. Some even hope to land a documentary or interview upon the former athlete's release.
According to experts, a parole board will vote to release the Simpson at the earliest possible date of October 3.
An ex-business partner of Simpson’s who has visited him behind bars said, "He’s convinced he’ll be coming out this fall and is counting down the days to his hearing like a kid waiting for Christmas," the Express reported.
But will he be fit to film? Insiders recently revealed the former Heisman trophy winner has suffered such medical woes as diabetes and a severe bone infection while in prison.
