PAROLE BOARD EXPECTED TO RELEASE O.J. SIMPSON EARLY FROM PRISON

OJ Simpson could walk free from jail in a few months after serving less than a third of his sentence before cashing in on his multi-million dollar NFL pension.

The former American football star could be released exactly nine years into his 33-year sentence after he was jailed for a string of crimes including armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008.

A parole board hearing on 3 July is expected to recommend the 69-year-old’s release based on good behavior.

If the board votes in his favor he could be a free man by 3 October, the earliest possible date for his release.

He needs to secure recommendations to be released from at least four of the seven commissioners at the hearing, something Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Daniel Hill was confident of.

“He’s the kind of person who gets paroled,” Mr Hill told he The Daily Express. “He has done a significant amount of time and, by all accounts, hasn’t caused any problems.”

The athlete turned film star was controversially cleared of the brutal murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her lover Ron Goldman in 1995. The pair were viciously stabbed to death.
