O.J. Simpson has a July 20 parole hearing

The Juice will soon find out whether he’ll be getting loose.

Adam Wells of NBC News reports that Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson will have a parole hearing on July 20. He could be released as soon as October.

Per Wells, Simpson previously secured parole on some of the 12 counts for which he’s serving a maximum sentence of 33 years, but other crimes required him to wait until 2017 for a chance at parole. Despite the niceties and nuances of the regulations that apply to the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners, the key word to look for is “discretion” — and the key real-world reality is whether members of the parole board believe that keeping him in jail is required not by the crimes for which he was convicted nine years ago, but whether he should be in jail for the rest of his life due to crimes he got away with in 1994.

  1. Deserves to stay LOCKED up or give him a few minutes “Alone” with the Goldman & Brown Family. If he can hold his own for 5 minutes, then release him

  2. the key real-world reality is whether members of the parole board believe that keeping him in jail is required not by the crimes for which he was convicted nine years ago, but whether he should be in jail for the rest of his life due to crimes he got away with in 1994.

    Anybody that thinks that way has no business being on a parole board. I think the murder jury was corrupt and got it horribly wrong but their verdict is as legally valid as any other. Maximizing sentences and making parole decisions based on personal beliefs about a decades old trial in a different state is heinous.

  3. Its amazing how people here in the comment section will defend Aaron Hernandez, Ray Rice, Donte Stallworth, Leonard Little, and Aqib Talib…

    Yet OJ, Vick, Lawrence Phillips, Aldon Smith, Greg Hardy, and Ray Rice get burned at the stake without remorse.

  4. What’s heinous is tossing justice aside for what the ‘law” prescribes.
    Lock him up forever.

  5. People Vs. O.J. Simpson …. awesome show. I highly recommend it.

    You may want to have a bag to puke in at the end of it though.

  6. “I think the murder jury was corrupt and got it horribly wrong but their verdict is as legally valid as any other.”

    Actually it was the police who were corrupt. Had they not tampered with evidence he probably would have been convicted. They had him nailed without the tampering.

  7. I’m a big O.J. fan. He was acquitted under the greatest justice system in the world (I believe that’s the line we use when we like the verdict). I still think the real killer is out there somewhere. I watched O.J. on TV for decades as a player, and a TV commentator, and he was always a perfect gentleman. The LAPD seemed very corrupt, and some of the cops didn’t have a lot of credibility, especially when it came to inter-racial couples. Marcia Clark must have changed her hair style time and time again for some reason I’m still not sure of. It just seemed like they were trying to railroad O.J.

    Unless it was someone you loved that he killed.

    There is a big part of me that doesnt care and wants to see him locked up forever. Oops, thats actually all of me.

    But you are right, we cannot allow such a precedent to start. That would be more harmful to society than even OJ would be. Slippery slope and all that.

    BTW – Here we have a Patriots fan and a Dolphins fan agreeing over something. Like OMG!! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats sleeping together, mass hysteria!! But thats ok, this is a good chance to get all this niceness junk out of our systems begore the regular season starts. 🙂

  11. That OJ: Made in America documentary is repeated on TV pretty often and is fascinating. Not at all exploitative, it gives you great context for everything that happened and is enlightening about OJ, the LAPD, the jury, everything.

    What you say makes no sense. Because if you definitely think the jury was corrupt then you can’t think their verdict was as valid any other, as those are self contradictory points (no corrupt verdict can be valid). Unless you think all juries are corrupt, but then that would make their verdicts equally invalid, not equally valid. And if you definitely think the jury was corrupt then the board are acting for the greater good.

  13. I dunno man. His own wife was out cheating on him.
    I think Marcus should issue a public apology for cheating on another mans wife and making threats

  14. Free the juice.

    Clark and her prosecuting team were inept. The LAPD were corrupt and Ito was too concerned with being on TV. The better lawyer team won.

  15. Oh come on man, set him free! The white Bronco is gassed, cleaned and ready to roll. OJ is far more interesting on the outside than the inside because it is only a matter of time when he will be in again! Free OJ! This guy is king of anger management nolo control!

  16. Miami has the oranges, but Buffalo has The Juice! That’s what I’m talking about. O.J. is innocent.

  17. For anyone who thinks oj is innocent (luckily it looks like on 2-3 of you) give me a call, I’ll give you a “killer” deal on some beachfront property I have for sale in Kentucky.
