O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing took place Thursday, and Gossip Cop has full video of the proceedings. Watch it below.

The former football player appeared in front of four members of the Nevada Parole Board in Carson City via video conference from Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center, where he’s been imprisoned since December 2008. The board ruled in his favor, and now Simpson could be released from prison by October. At that point, he hopes to relocate to Florida.

Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison in 2008 on 12 counts of attempted armed robbery and kidnapping following an incident in which he broke into the hotel room of two memorabilia dealers and held them at gunpoint. Simpson, who was accompanied by four other armed men, intended to forcibly retrieve his own NFL items that were up for sale. He attempted to appeal his conviction after his sentencing, but his request for a new trial was rejected in 2013. However, he was paroled that year on five of the 12 charges due to good behavior.

Of course, Thursday’s hearing was unrelated to the 1994 murders of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman, of which he was acquitted in 1995. In 1997, however, the ex-footballer was found liable for the killings and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages. Simpson has paid very little of the money awarded to the Goldman family, and will remain responsible for the civil suit when released in October.

When making their decision on Thursday, the parole board wasn’t allowed to take Simpson’s murder trial into consideration. The four board members had to vote unanimously in order for Simpson to be granted parole. A roughly 30-minute deliberation period was held before the board came to its ruling.

As Gossip Cop reported, the Daily Mail spread fake news on Wednesday alleging a female corrections officer found Simpson masturbating in his prison cell, and he could’ve been denied parole as a result. The story, however, was completely fabricated. And now Simpson has officially been granted parole. Check out the full hearing in the video below.
