All four members of the parole board that met with Simpson today at the Lovelock Correction Center voted to grant his conditional release in October.

O.J. Simpson is getting out of prison, after almost nine years on charges of leading an armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel room.

The Nevada Board of Parole voted today to grant the former National Football League star parole. Simpson says he's lived a clean life in prison and he deserves to be released.

Connie Bisbee, chairwoman of the parole board, said Simpson was considered low-risk.

Panthers release tackle Michael Oher amid concussion struggles
On Thursday, the Carolina Panthers made a decision to part ways with offensive tackle Michael Oher , citing a failed physical. He faces a misdemeanor assault charge, stemming from an altercation with an Uber driver in April.

In 2008, he was convicted of 12 charges, including armed robbery, and was handed a 33-year sentence.

Simpson parole today after a roughly 75-minute hearing in which the former National Football League star appeared via video conference from the Lovelock Correctional Center in Las Vegas and answered parole commissioners' questions.

Simpson was acquitted of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995 after they stabbed to death in June 1994.

"I've done my time, I've done it as well and respectfully as anyone can", he said during the hearing. I think if you talk to the wardens they'll tell you.

Exxon Says "Egregious" Sanctions Violations Were Just a Misunderstanding
The American oil giant was found to have conducted business with Igor Sechin , the head of the state-owned Rosneft in May 2014. On a trip to Kiev earlier this month, he said the sanctions would not be lifted until Russian Federation met its obligations.

Fromong added Simpson did not deserve nine to 33 years for the crime, and told an emotional Simpson that if he called Fromong tomorrow asking him to pick him up from prison, Fromong would be there. I did my time, I tried to be helpful to everybody. "I've basically spent a conflict-free life", he said. He has said many times that he never knew his accomplices were carrying guns and that he would never pull a gun on someone.

Simpson's daughter, Arnell, testified on her father's behalf, saying, "We just want him to come home".

"I'm sorry it happened, I'm sorry, Nevada", he said.

The parole board noted Simpson has been a model prisoner, and he took it a step further. "This is a good man". He also said the money itself doesn't matter to the family, just the punishment it inflicts.
