BREAKING -- OJ Simpson Wins Parole; Release Scheduled For October 2017

The former football star O.J. Simpson was just granted parole in Nevada and will be scheduled for release this October.

Simpson, serving 33 years for armed robbery, was granted parole by a four-member parole board panel unanimously ruling just minutes after hearing testimony from Simpson himself as well as his primary victim, who spoke and argued in support of Simpson's release.

One of the board members called Simpson a "low risk" to re-offend.

Simpson was convicted of 10 criminal counts in 2008 and sentenced to 33 years, with his first eligibility for release on parole being this October. Simpson has claimed that he was not robbing sports memorabilia in 2007 when he broke into a hotel room and seized signed goods, but retaking items he claimed were previously taken from him. Simpson maintained those claims at today's hearing.

Simpson's victim in the 2007 break-in to a Nevada hotel room, memorabilia dealer Bruce Fromong, said Simpson "never held a gun to me" and "never laid a hand on me," and said Simpson's sentence was "way too long." 

Simpson testified on his behalf in the hearing, saying: "I've made no excuses...I take full responsibility...I had no intent to commit a crime...no inmate has represented this prison better than I."

Simpson apologized to the state of Nevada and then expressed regret for his actions trying to said "nine years away from my family...it's just not worth it."

Fromong, the sports memorabilia dealer, called Simpson "a good man who's made a mistake." He said he never stole from O.J. Simpson, and said, "O.J. never held a gun to me," instead identifying someone else. "He [O.J. Simpson] never laid a hand on me." 

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of charges in the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, who was killed in June 1994. That was after Simpson was infamously chased in a Ford Bronco by police in a highway chase captured by helicopter video on nationwide live television during one of the championship games in the 1994 National Basketball Association finals.
