POLL: Should O.J. Have Been Paroled? Vote Now!

The parole board has spoken. He will be released. How do you feel about this decision?

O.J. Simpson has served almost 9 years of his 33-year prison sentence for leading a group of men to a Las Vegas hotel room, where sports memorabilia was stolen at gunpoint. On Thursday, four parole board members watched and listened to O.J. Simpson speak via video-conference from prison. After nearly an hour of deliberations, the board granted him parole.  

It wasn't Simpson's first time in a court room. The disgraced football star was acquitted in 1995 of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her Ron Goldman. He was found liable of the murders in a civil case. Some of the original jurors who acquitted O.J. at his double murder trial will be featured in Oxygen¹s "The Jury Speaks: O.J. Simpson," premiering Saturday, July 22 at 9/8c.  

Simpson is expected to be released this October. Do you think he should have been paroled? Vote below!
