O.J. Simpson’s Parole Hearing Is Almost Here And You Can Place Some Ridiculous Bets On His Fate
Society has a whole can take a collective sigh of relief, as the guy who totally didn’t kill anyone could be released from prison as early as October 1. O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing has been set for July 20 before a panel of four parole commissioners who could approve his release.
The infamous football star has served 9 years of his 33 year sentence for a botched armed robbery and kidnapping attempt after stealing his own sports memorabilia from a Vegas casino hotel room. Simpson claimed the memorabilia and other personal items were his, hence his attempt to try to reclaim them at gunpoint.
Reports indicate that Simpson has been a model inmate, which helps his bid for parole immensely if true. I guess it’s easy to be a model inmate when you’re the golden child of the prison. Simpson reportedly has a flat screen TV in his cell where he watches Keeping Up With the Kardashians and inmates allow him to skip to the front of the line in the cafeteria. He plays poker and umpires softball games. He also coaches the prison softball team. The guards even nicknamed him Nordberg — his character’s name in The Naked Gun film franchise.
In a few short days, we’ll find out if Simpson will be walking among us, but before then, you can place your bets. Check out some of the outrageous bets you can place on Simpson’s fate pre and post hearing, via Sports Betting Experts:
