Football superstar turned inmate O.J. Simpson is set to go before the parole board on July 20, and if all goes well Simpson could be released from a Nevada prison as early as October.
Simpson has served eight years of his nine to 33-year sentence after being found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and a host of other charges in relation to a conflict with two sports memorabilia dealers inside a Las Vegas hotel.
Simpson’s sister Shirley Baker spoke with Inside Edition and said there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be granted parole.
“He’s there, he’s doing his time, he abided by the rules,” she said. “And I just hope and pray that they will give him parole,” Baker said.
