His parole hearing could be a closing chapter to the decades of law and order Simpson has experienced.
O.J. Simpson may be serving his sentence in prison now, but it is not for the crime he is famous for.
"If O.J. called me and said he needed a ride home from prison, I would be there for him", Fromong said. "We haven't heard much from him".
Simpson's first few years in prison, the guards reminisced, were filled with ramen noodles, cookies, and cinnamon rolls. "The fascination with the life of this former football star, famous actor, and felon - has not waned in half a century", Craig Bengtson, an ESPN vice president and director of news, said in a press release. "The story is O.J. and us".
O.J. Simpson will plead for release from the Nevada prison where he's spent more than eight years for armed robbery and assault with a weapon after trying to take back sports memorabilia in a budget hotel room in Las Vegas. He also claimed he didn't know his associates were armed.
The prison has the capacity to hold about 1,680 inmates and is located approximately 100 miles northeast of Reno. He was ordered to give control of the book to the Goldman family as partial payment of the civil judgment, and they changed the name to If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.
Many people in the USA feel the stiff sentence wasn't just about the robbery. "All I can do about it since I've been here is be as respectful and as straightforward as I could be".More news: It's time for No. 1 pick Fultz to turn 76ers into winners
On Thursday, Simpson, now 70 years old is up for parole.
The board previously granted Simpson parole in 2013 on his burglary count, two counts of kidnapping, and two counts of robbery.
The hearing will begin at 1 p.m. EST, with four commissioners meeting in Carson City and Simpson participating remotely in the presence of his attorney. Those members will then leave to deliberate.
He needs four votes from commissioners to get paroled.
Bailey stopped by Scoop B Radio and discussed O.J. Simpson's Dream Team. If parole is denied, a rehearing date would be set by the panel.
In Nevada, inmates are seen about four months before they are eligible for parole.
Simpson will be scored on an 11-point form that Nevada uses for risk assessment.
A representative for Nevada's Parole Board did not immediately return IBT request for comment. "I'm not doing it because he's my friend, which he is". Scotto told CNN, "He brings everybody together, the skinheads, blacks, Mexicans".
