Will OJ Simpson be Granted Parole in 2017?

Will OJ Simpson be Granted Parole in 2017?

Will The Juice Be On The Loose?

If all goes his way, O.J. Simpson could be running to daylight again as early as this fall. The first NFL running back to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, Simpson was imprisoned in 2008, convicted on 12 counts that included conspiracy, burglary, robbery, kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon. He faces a July 20 hearing before the Nevada Board of Parole.

He was incarcerated in the Lovelock Correctional Center and sentenced to 9-33 years by the state of Nevada, meaning this is Simpson's first chance at freedom. But will O.J. be able to run through airports again?

Odds are he will.

Bovada.lv believes he will, too. Bovada is offering -350 odds that Simpson will be granted parole. If you are a naysayer who is convinced that O.J. should remain locked up, you'll get +225 on a no from the parole board.

Realistically, it's difficult to imagine that Simpson will continue to remain behind bars.

The once-NFL best running back wore No. 32 for the Buffalo Bills today is inmate No. 1027820 at Lovelock, situated 90 minutes northeast of Reno. Arrested and later convicted on charges stemming from a 2007 incident in a Las Vegas hotel room in which Simpson and some friends sought to reclaim some of his memorabilia from a couple of collectors, an episode that escalated when one of Simpson's cohorts brandished a gun, Simpson supporters insist the harsh sentence handed him was payback for his 1995 acquittal on charges that he murdered his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, and they just might have a point.

More than two decades later, Simpson remains a lightning rod. No one is in the undecided camp when it comes to O.J. His detractors are equally emphatic that the Pro Football Hall of Famer got away with murder.

Remove emotion from this decision and it's difficult to see it going any direction other than freedom for O.J. As a football player, Simpson was all about accumulating points. He scored 61 touchdowns.

But in the parole game, it's all about avoiding points, which are ticks counted against the prisoner seeking release. If Simpson scores six points in this tilt, he's going back behind bars, because five or more generally eliminates hope of parole.

That shouldn't be an issue with Simpson. By all accounts, O.J. has been a model prisoner. He mops floors. He sanitizes gym equipment. He has officiated and coached prison sports, even served as commissioner of the prison softball league. Simpson has no previous felonies. He'll also be 70 next month, and older prisoners rarely re-offend.

In 2013, Simpson was paroled on five of the 12 counts against him and was classified as a low risk prisoner. A decade after breaking the law, Simpson would appear poised to break into the open one more time.

Prediction: Simpson is paroled (-350)
