Did anyone else never watch the trial,the glove did not fit. If OJ murdered his ex wife then who's bloody gloves were at the crime scene. The cold blooded killer of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown may still roaming the streets of Los Angeles today,and an innocent man is locked up in Nevada today because he was tried and convicted by the media.

Pair those two crimes together (along with the other counts--there were 10 or so total I think) and you get a sentence that is actually not entirely as unjustifiable as one would think. Because the sentence is "9 to 33", which gives a lot of room for good behavior and whatever else to allow for a person to get out at around 9 to 10 years of serving the sentence.
Yes. This all true. Armed robbery and kidnapping are treated as very serious crimes.

Remember the "John 3:16" guy with a rainbow wig who was at nearly every televised sporting event in the 70s and 80s? And you don't see him anymore. That's because he's serving three consecutive life sentences for kidnapping after he lost his shit, thought the rapture was imminent, and held three people (including a hotel maid) at gunpoint in a hotel room.

With the circumstances of O.J.'s case, though, I could see the charges being reduced or a generous plea bargain being offered, so the charges might be a way to punish him for the killings he was acquitted of. But I don't think the sentence he was received was out of line for an armed robbery and kidnapping conviction.

re: OJ Simpson gets July 20 parole hearing date in Nevada. [UPDATE: PAROLED!]

OJ Simpson’s Parole Hearing Next Week Set to Be Televised.

For the first time since 2013, the public will see O.J. Simpson live next week when he appears at a televised parole hearing.

The hearing will take place at 10 a.m. PT on Thursday, July 20, from Nevada and will be broadcast in a video pool, with networks including ESPN airing it live.

The televised Trial of the Century back in 1995, in which Simpson was acquitted in the double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, captivated the nation.

All eyes will no doubt be on the former USC and Buffalo Bills football star once again, though Simpson, who just turned 70, will look very different.

ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap will anchor a special 90 minute “Outside the Lines” on Thursday about the events surrounding the hearing. Earlier this year, the network won its first Oscar for the highly-accalimed “30 for 30” event series, “O.J.: Made in America,” directed by Ezra Edelman.

The hearing will be streamed from the Lovelock Correction Center, where Simpson has been a resident since 2008.

The former football star was sentenced to nine to 33 years for armed robbery and kidnapping following a scheme to break into a room at the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas to steal sports memorabilia.

Simpson denied that he broke into the room and that he held people at gunpoint, but did admit to taking the items, which included memorabilia that he said belonged to him.

He was sentenced exactly 13 years after he was acquitted on charges of murdering his ex-wife Nicole and Goldman.

Simpson was granted parole on some of the armed robbery convictions in 2013, but still had to serve at least four more years due to assault with a deadly weapon charges and other weapon-related charges.

If paroled, he won’t see the outside of the prison until October 2017.

I don't think he will get out. He won't starve unfortunately if he does. They mentioned he is due $25K a month for his NFL pension.

I may have heard a quick blurb on the news when it was happening. The media didn't really cover this story very thoroughly.

Trying to recall but I seem to remember the reason why they said they didn't fit was because Simpson was wearing rubber gloves, the gloves shrank because of the blood on them, and something about OJ not taking some of his medication that caused his hands to swell up. Additionally they tried, afterwards, to get him to try on a new pair from the same company (and without the rubber gloves) but this request was denied by the judge.

He was also spreading his hands when trying them on. Making his hand appear larger and not able to slide into the glove. It was like he'd just watched a clip on magicians doing sleight of hand.

Leather also does weird things when soaked in blood. It loses its elasticity, becomes harder to put on.

It was almost as if he tried to purposely make sure the glove didn't fit, that it somehow would have hurt his defense, or something.

So tomorrow is the Parole board hearing. I would be really surprised if they don't decide to release him at this opportunity (I think he'd actually get out in Oct).

Trouble seems to follow him.. we'll see how long he stays out.

At least the Goldmans will have some more money coming to them finally.

^^ The Goldmans cannot touch his pension. That is a big frustration for them, because it lets him live a decent lifestyle.

I saw yesterday that his NFL pension is $1,700 a month. Does anyone know if you can get a Social Security check if you are serving a prison sentence? At 70, he could have been getting one for years if it's possible.

No:

"Although you can't receive monthly Social Security benefits while you're incarcerated, benefits to your spouse or children will continue as long as they remain eligible. If you're receiving SSI, your payments are suspended while you're in prison. Your payments can be reinstated in the month you're released."

Meh let him have his final years outside of the big house. I abhor the guy for what he did but he got his just desserts and he appears to be a broken man. I don't have any problem with his parole.

Says Aaron Hernandez. I'm sure your post was in jest... but it's about as funny as your username.

So, he may not get an official release due to self-release.

The irony is, of course, that he expected to get off today.
