O.J. Simpson seeking parole this week


Former NFL star O.J. Simpson has a parole hearing Thursday that could have him released from a Nevada prison.

Simpson has served more than nine years of a 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 is due to appear by video conference from Lovelock Correctional Center, where he is being held, before a panel of four parole commissioners sitting in Carson City.
