OJ Simpson seeking release from prison

20/20 digging into OJ Simpson parole hearing in Nevada

Citing a guard who's supposedly close to Simpson, Page Six reports that O.J.is nervous that the expected media circus will influence the parole board to deny his release.

Simpson, with the help of several other men, broke into a Las Vegas hotel room on September 13, 2007, and stole at gunpoint sports memorabilia that he said belonged to him.

Simpson has served nine years of a 33-year sentence for armed robbery.

The parole board says it expects to announce its Simpson decision on the same day as the hearing, which we are told "has never happened before". Simpson is serving time for a scheme to steal sports memorabilia at gunpoint.

Probe into fatal USA police shooting of Australian woman
The officer in the passenger seat drew his gun and shot the 40-year-old through the driver's side door, the newspaper reported. Relatives of an Australian woman who was fatally shot by police in Minneapolis say they've lost "a loving free spirit".

The 2007 crime, during which Simpson and others stole some 800 items from a Las Vegas hotel room, came a little over a decade after he was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.

One of the detectives on the case, Andy Caldwell, is now a Christian minister and said that he is not predicting how the board will rule.

Additionally, Page Six is reporting that Simpson will show up via a video feed from the Nevada prison he's now incarcerated in. If granted parole, he could be released on October 1.

For those looking to see O.J. Simpson in the mix, unfortunately, the convicted criminal will only be making his appearance via video conference from the prison.

In terms of de-stocking in the property market, the floor space of unsold homes were down 9.6 percent at the end of June. The bank has raised its 2017 annual GDP projection to 6.8 percent on-year from 6.6 percent previously.

Simpson's attorney in Las Vegas, Malcolm LaVergne, said he will be with his client at the medium-security prison.

"I don't want to offer an opinion", said Caldwell.

Next week, four members of the Nevada Board of Parole will convene in Carson City to consider the case of Inmate #1027820. He said Simpson's brother Melvin and niece Tracy Baker will be elsewhere at Lovelock due to restrictions in the hearing room.

A friend says Simpson seemed "excited" when they spoke on the phone last week, and that he was "very positive". The heavy Simpson was found guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping.
