OJ Simpson could be released on parole as early as October, per Daily Mail.
The former NFL star was convicted of kidnapping, robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon in 2008 and has served nine years of his 33 year sentence.

Simpson and accomplices robbed memorabilia collectors Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong of nearly 800 items in a Las Vegas hotel room in November 2007, Sports Illustrated reported.
He alleged the pair had stolen items from him.
Simpson receives as much as $25,000 monthly, $300,000 yearly, or $2.7m throughout his prison stay, from his NFL pension.
He is prisoner 1027820 at the ‘medium-custody’ facility, where he will need to win over four of seven commissioners at his parole hearing, which could occur this summer, and receive a certain number of ‘points.’
The 11-point based system in Nevada reflects issues such as gang membership, drug and alcohol abuse and age in assessing parole eligibility and each issue reflects values from -1 to +2.
He would need less than five points to be considered ‘low risk.’

It is expected that Simpson’s parole board will give him early release on the basis of good behavior.
