O.J. Simpson, once affectionately known as 'Juice' by friends and former-fans worldwide, could soon be a free man. O.J. was convicted nearly a decade ago in a sports memorabilia heist in Las Vegas, where he, along with others, were arrested for the armed robbery of a sports memorabilia dealer. Although he was sentenced to 30 years, he is eligible for parole this year. If denied, he'll have to wait until 2022 for his next opportunity at parole.
Based upon one report, it appears likely that the Juice will be let loose as he has avoided all trouble while incarcerated. Nevada uses a point system to guide the parole board's discretionary decision, and based upon the information publicly available, he seems poised to have a good chance of being granted parole. Nevada's system recognizes that O.J. is an older convict, with no write-ups, no criminal history, a stable employment history, and that during his incarceration he availed himself of the rehabilitation and education services offered by the institution. Despite public opinion, based upon the Nevada parole board's criterion, the Juice appears to be a model inmate.
