O.J. Simpson Granted Parole, Could Be Released As Early As Oct 1st

| July 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

O.J. is celebrating the eminent release from prison today as a group of four Nevada commissioners granted the former pro football player parole after nine years.

O.J. will be eligible to be released as soon as Oct. 1, 2017, two days before the 22nd anniversary of his acquittal.

Simpson was at times jovial and combative with the members of the parole board, expressing his remorse and saying he’s humbled by his incarceration. Simpson was sentenced to prison following an arrest in 2007 during a botched robbery in Las Vegas, when he led a group of men into a hotel and casino to steal sports memorabilia at gunpoint. He contended the memorabilia and other personal items belonged to him.

Simpson, delivered a rambling account of the case to the parole board earlier today, maintaining that he didn’t intend to steal but “wish this would have never happened.”

The 70-year-old will probably have significant retirement income as well as income from TV deals.

The NFL won’t say how much he’ll get from his NFL pension, and it’s hard to estimate without knowing some key details, such as when he decided to start collecting benefits. But according to the NFL benefits formula, he could receive as much as $100,680 a year if he waited until age 65 to start drawing his pension.

Ex-players have the option of receiving benefits as young as 45, or can start at 55, but financial advisers say it pays to wait till 65.
