The Juice could be loose again — very soon.
O.J. Simpson will have another parole hearing — set for July 20, and the former NFL legend could be released from a Nevada prison Oct. 1, according to The Associated Press.
Simpson, who turns 70 on July 9, has served more than eight years of a nine- to 33-year sentence imposed after he was found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges stemming from a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel in September 2007.
Simpson will reportedly appear via video conference before a four-person panel in Carson City, parole official David Smith said.
Simpson’s attorney sounded as if The Juice is finally prepared to fade into the sunset.
“If he’s able to get parole, my prediction is he’s going to want to live a quiet life,” Simpson’s attorney in Las Vegas, Malcolm LaVergne, said in a recent interview.
Simpson is most famous for being acquitted of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.
