OJ Simpson Paroled:
Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman Still Dead
After nine years in prison for armed robbery, on Thursday, July 20th 2017 O.J. Simpson was granted parole in Nevada.
According to reports during the time he served in the Lovelock Correctional Center, O.J. was a model prisoner fulfilling and exceeding his obligations. He managed to avoid conflicts and never been a subject to a disciplinary action. He completed “Alternative To Violence” and a “Victim Empathy” course, coached athletic teams and even became involved in creating a Baptist service behind bars.
O.J. Simpson came well prepared to the parole hearing. He sounded humble and sincere. Among those who expressed their support for Simpson and spoke in support of the parole were his eldest daughter Arnelle Simpson and his friend – one of the 2007 robbery’s victims – Bruce Fromong, a sports memorabilia dealer.
The parole was granted and O.J. could be released as early as October 1st of this year.
Simpson’s plans after his release are not known. Some speculate that he might return to Florida where two of his youngest children live. (Returning to Florida would provide him with the legal advantage of the “homestead law” which would help him protect his assets from seizure by Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman estates which are still being owed $33.5 million, plus interest.) There are also rumors that Simpson may settle in Sacramento, CA. One thing on which all sources agree is that once released, Simpson will receive his NFL pension (which is protected from seizure by law); he also has a retirement plan with the Screen Actor’s Guild.
Even after a long absence from media spotlight, the 70-year old O.J. Simpson managed to captivate audiences across all media during his parole hearing. He was sympathetic and convincing, almost likeable… to someone who never heard of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
While appealing for sympathy, O.J. Simpson spoke of his life as free of criminal activity, at one point even saying “I lived a conflict-free life.” As if domestic violence and a brutal double-murder weren’t parts of his life. R.I.P. Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. O.J. may have forgotten, we didn’t.
