O.J. Simpson could be released sooner than you think

This summer, O.J. Simpson is up for parole.

Simpson has been locked up in Lovelock Correctional Center since 2008, and he could be up for parole as early as this upcoming summer. He has been, according to officials, “the best prisoner [they’d] ever have” and has been spending his time mopping floors, umpiring and coaching sports, mentoring younger inmates and keeping “a lot of trouble from happening” at Lovelock. It was this good behavior and good influence that in 2013 earned him parole for five of his charges.

According to David Smith of the Nevada parole board, he is now scheduled to be eligible for parole on October 1, and parole hearings typically take place a few months before then. Therefore, Simpson could be up for parole hearings this summer, meaning he could be out by the fall. Otherwise, he would remain in prison until 2022, at which point he would be 75 years old.

Even if he is freed from prison, however, Simpson will still need to check in with his parole officer and get permission to travel out of state. He will also still be liable for the millions of dollars that he owes the Goldman and Brown families.

We’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds for Simpson if and when he gets out.
