The prosecutor who put O.J. Simpson behind bars thinks Simpson is about to get out.

Simpson, the Hall of Fame running back who was acquitted of double murder in 1995 but convicted of robbery in 2008, has a parole hearing next week. David Roger, the prosecutor who won the conviction of Simpson, said he believes the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners is likely to let Simpson out.

“The guy did a lot of time on a robbery charge, I expect he’ll probably be paroled,” Roger told the New York Post.

If Simpson is paroled, he could be released as soon as October 1, which would be a total of nine years in prison. Roger said he offered Simpson and his attorneys a plea deal that would have seen Simpson serve just two and a half years, but Simpson turned it down.

“He had plenty of opportunity to enter a plea to do far less time,” Roger said. “He thought he was invincible. He wanted to roll the dice.”

Simpson turned 70 on Sunday.

  1. Yes, OJ will get out of jail and yet Ron and Nicole are still dead. This piece of crap should have done society the same favor Aaron Hernandez did.

  2. Nope….let him rot in prison. Doesnt matter if it’s for the robbery charge….we all know he deserves to die in prison for the savage murder of Nicole & Ron. Let justice be served.

  3. Emotions run high in a case like this, but it’s not OJ’s fault the prosecutors screwed up the criminal case. Hence, he should be entitled to the same basic treatment as anybody else convinced of robbery.

    At least he got an extra 6.5 years for being so smug. There has to be a little “Justice” in that.

  4. I read something about his privileged life behind bars. Had a big screen TV in his cell. Prison isn’t prison for everybody.

    This is why I don’t believe in karma. Whether it was OJ or someone else, Ron and Nicole’s killer has never been made accountable.

    ============================
    It’s more like jury nullification, the black jurors who served on this trial decided that the police force has discriminated against them for years and to return the favor, they let OJ walk. And effectively shot their themselves in the foot yet again because probably the least deserving black man in America got away with a double murder.

  6. Well, we proclaim to be all about the constitution until we are tested. We want to keep bringing up Nicole Simpson but based on the rules of that beloved constitution that we are quick to cite, he was found not guilty, thus this armed robbery thing has nothing to do with Nicole and Ron.

    People will get mad but you can’t pick and choose which sections of the constitution you’re going to follow.

    NO denverdave3, it was the jury. as I’ve always said .. THAT jury was gonna to acquit even if OJ had admitted he did it, AND there was video.

  8. The day he gets out….ESPN will hand him a blank contract to fill out, name your price…..that network is a disgrace and they will jump on that chance just for the negativity publicity…they’re failing.

  9. Why you all so mad, he did serious time for “robbery”?
    Didn’t he go get his stolen stuff back?
    And he was found innocent of that other thing they said he did…..
    “I’m not black I’m OJ”

    NO packfaninpackland….denverdave is RIGHT. Marcia Clark and her boyfriend Chris Darden “screweded” (literally) up the case big time including allowing the defense to sit a biased jury like that…

  11. I love O.J. Simpson. He was one of my favorite players, and one of the best RBs of all time. He’s served his time. America is a great country. We have the best legal system in the world. It’s not perfect, but the it’s best in the world (at least that’s what most people say when they like the verdict. Right?).

  12. “He among you who is without sin – let him cast the first stone.”

    Just saying.

    I put that up a little while ago and it didn’t last long. Interesting to see how long this lasts.

  13. correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t the guy have his day in court and was acquitted AND I AM NOT an oj sympathizer but he was found not quilty in this cause he was found quilty served his time or whatever Nevada sees as fit and he’s probably getting out love it or hate the American justice system is still one of the best in the world NOT THE BEST but one of the best.

  14. There is a big difference committing everyday sins and being a double murderer. I’m not perfect and I don’t judge most people…but OJ…yeah, I feel alright casting judgment on him.

  15. Just to be clear, OJ Simpson was the best athlete to come through Buffalo. I make no comments on the American judicial system or OJ’s morals – but there was no better athlete to come through Buffalo.

  16. O.J. was an awesome football player, and a great TV personality. I watched him for decades and thought he was a great guy. He was tried for murder, and found not guilty. As far as I’m concerned, he’s 100% innocent. I’m sorry that two people are dead, but O.J. apparently didn’t have anything to do with it. I don’t blame folks who hate O.J. Most of us were raised to be racist. It wasn’t our parent’s fault either. They were raised that way too. I’ve lived in every region in this country. A lot of white people hate blacks for no reason. That’s just the way we was raised.

  17. ray lewis self-defense. if those two ex-cons stayed in ohio instead of violating parole and starting fights in atlanta, they may just still be alive today

    somebody please tell me why a guy with movie star looks , fame,fortune and all kinds of women throwing underwear at him going to kill somebody he already divorced?

    he knew she was getting high her girl friend Faye Resnick said they were doing 1000 a week in cocaine in her book. neverlesss racists and dummies of all colors think there is no way drugs may have played a role in these murders
