O.J. Simpson is up for parole after serving over 8 years for armed robbery and assault with a weapon while trying to retrieve his sports memorabilia.
No one at his parole hearing—which is live streaming below—is expected to oppose releasing him in October, according to the Associated Press.
After his parole hearing, Oxygen is airing "The Jury Speaks: O.J. Simpson" on Saturday, July 22 at 9/8c. The show will feature some of the original jurors from The People vs. O.J. Simpson case, also known as "the trial of the century."
Simpson, 70, is approaching the 9-year minimum of his 33-year sentence.
“Assuming that he’s behaved himself in prison, I don’t think it will be out of line for him to get parole,” said David Roger, a retired Clark County district attorney, according to the AP.
Since 2008, Simpson has been at Lovelock Correctional Facility in Nevada, according to CNN. Simpson has had no disciplinary actions in prison. He leads a Baptist prayer group, mentors inmates and coaches sports teams.
The proceedings will be streamed live.
Simpson's murder trial and civil suit loss should have no impact on his bid for parole, David Smith, spokesman for the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners, told CNN.
Some of the original jurors who acquitted O.J. at his double murder trial will be featured in Oxygen’s "The Jury Speaks: O.J. Simpson," premiering Saturday, July 22 at 9/8c.
