O.J. Simpson has been in prison for a decade, but it’s looking as if the sports star turned actor might be coming home sooner than thought.
In a report sent out by the Nevada Department of Corrections, Simpon, who is 70-years-old, has a parole hearing scheduled for sometime in July.
Currently, Simpson is serving a prison stint at the Lovelock Correction Center that is 90 miles from Reno.
Brook Keast, a spokeswoman for NDOC, said that O.J. became an inmate at the correction facilities back in December of 2008. His criminal charges include first-degree kidnapping, conspiracy to commit a violent crime, and armed robbery.
There was no connection to his current charges and what was called the “trial of the century.” In 1994, O.J. was accused of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and Ron Goldman, who was friends with Nicole.
Is O.J. Simpson Coming Back?
Actually, the new charges came in 2007, after a robbery in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Simpson stated previously that he was attempting to reclaim personal items and memorabilia from Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong.
Back at his 2013 hearing, O.J. Simpson said that he is remorseful for what he did that night.
During that parole hearing, he stated that he wishes he would have never entered that room.
If O.J. Simpson receives good news at his hearing in July, he still will not be able to leave three months.
While speaking of the trial, Keast said that the doors would not be open to outsiders, but they will have the chance to watch what happens during a live streaming.
Since Simpson is a high-profile inmate, they want to take all precautions for his case.
As of now, Simpson has no interest in speaking with the media or taking any interviews. After the hearing, officials in Carson City do plan on holding a news conference.
