OJ SIMPSON GRANTED PAROLE AFTER SERVING 9 YEARS IN A NEVADA JAIL FOR ARMED ROBBERY

The Nevada Parole Board has granted former NFL legend O J Simpson a parole after they convened to decide whether he should be released from prison.

Simpson was serving a 33-year sentence for robbing sports memorabilia dealers in 2008

Statement form Bruce Fromong:

Oj never held a gun to my head

Oj has been my friend for over 27 years and will always be

OJ is a good man and will do anything for anyone

The 33 years sentence was way too long. I recommended 1 – 3 in 2008.

Oj has apologised and I forgive him

 

The former football hero and actor whose good-guy image vanished when he was accused of murdering his ex-wife and her friend, will go free after serving nine years in a Nevada prison on charges stemming from an armed robbery, a state parole board ruled on Thursday.

Mr. Simpson, who turned 70 this month, went before the board as a man convicted of taking a group of accomplices, two of them armed with guns, to a cheap Las Vegas hotel room in 2007 to take hundreds of items from a sports memorabilia dealer. But it is the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, for which he was acquitted after the most-watched trial in history, that have cast the longer, darker shadow over his life and reputation.

He will be officially released on the 1st of October 2017
