20/20 digging into OJ Simpson parole hearing in Nevada

O.J. Simpson could be freed after a parole hearing Thursday in Nevada, where he has spent the past nine years in prison on robbery and kidnapping charges, USA Today reports.

"It's based on his behavior in prison and that certainly hasn't changed", Galanter said.

"He's been a model inmate".

It saw him and a string of accomplices break into a room at gunpoint and steal various O.J. Simpson collectibles from dealers Bruce Fromong and Alfred Beardsley.

Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in the crime. He has been incarcerated at Lovelock Correctional Center since December 2008. Don't be surprised if ESPN uses the parole hearing as an excuse to promote O.J.: Made in America, their special series about Simpson's career and his quick fall from stardom. However, he had to serve at least 4 more years in prison at that time. Galanter called that "the clearest indicator" Simpson will be granted parole on the remaining counts Thursday.

The state parole board bases its decisions on points an inmate has accumulated for behavior in prison. "Here, if you're a model prisoner, you behave yourself, you're not a flight risk, you get paroled". In 1995, an estimated 100 million viewers watched on television as the onetime athlete was acquitted in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

"The people that are making this decision are part of the legal system", Galanter said. More than a year later, on October 8, 2008, he was found guilty by a jury on all 12 charges. "The law said he didn't do it".

Pakistan Army chief to decide on Jadhav soon
On July 13, the foreign office said Pakistan was "considering" the request for visa. India however maintains that Jadhav was abducted from Iran.

One defense attorney believes he is likely to receive a parole.

He told Page Six, "The Juice is sweating it over the parole hearing". They already know his record as a prisoner.

Simpson will join the members from his prison via video conference. Simpson could be granted his freedom.

At his 2013 hearing, he told members, "I just wish I never went to that room".

The parole board normally issues decisions weeks after hearings, but plans to announce its decision in this case on Thursday.

As Simpson's release eligibility date is not until Oct.1, he will not be released until then if the parole board decides to free him, notes NBC.

"In terms of what he does with the rest of his life, " Galanter said, "if he was sitting next to me I'd say, 'Listen, be thankful you got out in nine years".
