The 70-year-old Simpson has been behind bars for nine years after he was convicted in 2008 for armed robbery and kidnapping, which stemmed from an altercation with a pair of Las Vegas sports memorabilia dealers. He was sentenced to up to 33 years in prison.

Simpson was granted parole in July, and his release is anticipated for the first business day after October 1, since probation officials don’t do releases on weekends. Nevertheless, officials are not guaranteeing the freedom of the former NFL star, Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast told the New York Daily News.

“We can hold him as long as necessary,” she said. “We’re trying to be transparent without being stupid.”

Simpson’s prospective freedom comes around 22 years after being acquitted for the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Well, he served an approriate amount of time for the crime he was convicted of. And people should be convicted and sentenced based on the crime they are charged with not past crimes.

BUT fuck you to the first network who signs him.
