O.J. Simpson Released for Parole After 9 Years
Officials in Nevada, finalized a plan for the parole release of former football super-star O.J. Simpson.
The process of freedom for Mr. Simpson was approved and signed according to state department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast. The 70-year-old was released from Lovelock Correctional center anticipating an eventual stay in Florida.
Prosecuted by David Roger, partner of Sgro and Roger, scheduled for parole during a 33 year sentence behind bars. A state parole board in July approved
October 1st, 2017 as the first day he would qualify for parole; Mr. Simpson will be supervised by the state Division of Parole if he is released.
Simpson’s parole board did not consider Simpson’s 1989 conviction for domestic violence when they allowed him parole. The case was not listed in national FBI crime database, and as such, the board waived that conviction in their consideration.
The police report from 1989 reveals that cops arrived to a scene in which O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife was screaming, “He’s going to kill me!” Officers mentioned a cut lip, swollen and black left eye with hand prints on the neck of Simpson’s ex wife. Malcolm LaVergne, O.J Simpson’s lawyer attempted to downplay the domestic violence by stating that the abuse was simply, “more in the nature of a traffic ticket than a serious crime.”
