ESPN to televise OJ Simpson parole hearing

20/20 digging into OJ Simpson parole hearing in Nevada OJ Simpson is 'Sweating it' Ahead of Parole Hearing Next Week: Former Guard

Some of O.J. Simpson's closest friends reveal new details about the night that landed him in prison on ABC's 20/20 tonight - ahead of his upcoming parole hearing.

"He's going to get parole", said former Simpson lawyer Yale Galanter, according to USA Today.

In 2013, Simpson was granted parole on a few of the 12 original charges, but the man was required to serve an additional four years for some his weapons-related convictions, including assault with a deadly weapon. Simpson has already served his minimum sentence.

According to Yale Galanter, an attorney who represented the former National Football League star during his 2008 trial, Simpson will likely walk free due to his exceptional behavior behind bars. But a parole hearing in 2013 bodes well for Simpson, according to Galanter.

Simpson was convicted after breaking into a Las Vegas hotel room on September 13, 2007, with the help of several other men and stealing sports memorabilia he claimed belonged to him.

However, shortly after he left home she received the horrifying message that her husband was planning to kill himself. Both of them worked for United Parachute Technologies , a local company that makes containers for parachutes.

The public's fascination with Simpson hasn't ebbed since his era-defining arrest (and acquittal) for the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

Walter Alexander avoided jail time by testifying against Simpson.

Simpson's cohort in the crime, Clarence "C.J".

The hearing will be held before a panel of four parole commissioners sitting in Carson City, Nev. Simpson will participate by video conference from Lovelock Correctional Center, where he has been living since December 2008. They must reach a unanimous decision; if they can't, the two other members will review the case from a different location until the full group can reach a majority of four votes.

As Simpson's release eligibility date is not until Oct.1, he will not be released until then if the parole board decides to free him, notes NBC. (Nevada holds parole hearings roughly three months ahead of time.) His release would likely come with numerous conditions, and he would nearly certainly be required to check in regularly with a parole officer. "A decision (on Simpson) is being made at the time of the hearing so that the board's operation can return to normal as soon as possible after the hearing". "And what's what these people do day in and day out".
