O.J. Simpson getting July 20 parole hearing date in Nevada
LAS VEGAS - Imprisoned former football star O.J. Simpson has a parole hearing date next month in Nevada.
State Board of Parole Commissioners official David Smith said Tuesday the 70-year-old Simpson is due to appear July 20 before a panel of four parole commissioners who could approve his release Oct.1.
Simpson will be at the Lovelock Correctional Center, where he has been serving his nine-to-33 year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping.
Commissioners will be in a hearing room in Carson City, and they will question Simpson by closed-circuit TV.
Simpson was acquitted in 1995 in Los Angeles in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
He was found guilty in Las Vegas in 2008 of orchestrating an armed confrontation in 2007 with two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel.
