OJ Simpson: Inmate number 1027820

Former football star O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted of double-murder in Los Angeles during one of the most celebrated criminal trials of all time, was granted parole Thursday after serving almost nine years in prison in Nevada for a Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping conviction. He was given a nine-year minimum on his 33-year prison sentence.

According to CNN, the parole board score inmates on a number of factors.

So how likely is it that the board will grant him parole?

All eyes are once again on O.J. Simpson during his Thursday parole hearing.

He and a group of five others stormed into a hotel room to confront two sports-memorabilia collectors and seize items that he claimed belonged to him from his career. The decision came after Simpson apologized for the 2007 armed robbery that led to his imprisonment.

Her father, the late Robert Kardashian, was Simpson's friend and part of the legal "Dream Team" that acquitted him of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995. Fromong has told The Associated Press that he forgives Simpson for the incident.

O.J. Simpson arrives for his parole hearing at Lovelock Correctional Center, in Lovelock, Nevada, July 20.

Simpson was already granted parole for several of the charges during a 2013 hearing, the New York Daily News reported, including the charge of armed robbery.

"I've known OJ for a long time", said Mr Fromong.

"It was a very interesting experience", said Robert Blaiser, Simpson's former attorney, "It was basically a 24-hour-a-day adrenaline rush".

He has been asked to explain what happened on the night at the hotel, and says he walked into a hotel room when he noticed his belongings "spread out".

Simpson also stated that he'd spent a "conflict-free" life.

. Bisbee then corrects herself and Simpson confirm he's 70.

There are a few ways to watch Simpson's parole hearing on Thursday at 1 p.m. EST, for which more than 240 media credentials have reportedly been granted.

The board, of four members, will consider his bid for freedom from 6pm.

Simpson's oldest child, Arnelle Simpson, spoke about her father's "true character" in a closing statement at Thursday's hearing and was emotional as she said he was her "best friend" and "rock".

This all has nothing to do with the famous 1994 trial and acquittal Simpson had after he was charged with murdering his ex-wife.

"My crime was trying to retrieve for my family my own property that was stolen from me", he said.
