OJ prepares for parole hearing

Ron Goldman Autopsy Report

If the four parole commissioners who are scheduled to conduct the hearing can not agree unanimously on whether to release Simpson, the remaining three members will be contacted immediately to review the case and vote until there is a majority for approval or denial.

Why is he in prison?

Simpson is a San Francisco native who grew up in the Potrero Hill neighborhood, attended Galileo High School and spent two years at City College of San Francisco before moving on to fame and fortune at the University of Southern California and the NFL. Simpson alleged he was just trying to retrieve sports memorabilia that he believed belonged to him.

As Radar previously revealed, former prison guard Craig Arnett, revealed that Simpson had a "strong chance of getting out" of prison, since he has supposedly been a model citizen and very "respectful". He got a nine-to-33 year sentence, which was widely seen as a form of "payback" for his 1995 acquittal. Judge Jackie Glass, on December 8, 2008, sentenced Simpson to a minimum of nine years and a maximum of 33 years in prison.

He said that any other person accused of similar acts would not have gotten such a tough sentence.

"While they respect the legal process, they are feeling both frustration and anticipation over how this will change their lives again should Simpson be released", says the statement prepared by the family's spokesmen.

O.J. Simpson listens as his defense attorney, Ozzie Fumo, questions witness David Cook during an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court, May 16, 2013, in Las Vegas. If granted parole, he could be released as early as October 1, after serving the minimum nine-year prison term.

Scotto told NBC News that it's likely Simpson would move back to Florida if he's released.

When: Thursday, 1 p.m. The parole hearing will probably take about 20 minutes. He is expected to speak at the hearing via videoconference.

Due to the intense media coverage, the Nevada parole board says it will issue a decision on Simpson's parole on the same day as the hearing. They will be briefed and vote until they have four in agreement or deadlock at a 3-3 vote.

"It's based on his behavior in prison and that certainly hasn't changed", Simpson's ex-lawyer Yale Galanter told the Daily News.

What happened in his original parole hearing?

Do we know anything about the four members of the parole board who will be deciding his case, and whether they tend to be conservative or more lenient?

Simpson has no other prior felonies, record show. It plans to make its written risk assessment public after a decision.

This isn't the first time Simpson has appeared before the parole board. He remained in prison, however, on the seven other charges related to his use of a deadly weapon.

What if he is denied parole?

The panel would set a date for the next hearing, generally one to three years from now.
