LAS VEGAS, NV - MAY 14:  O.J. Simpson smiles during a break in an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court on May 14, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Simpson, who is currently serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in state prison as a result of his October 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping charges, is using a writ of habeas corpus to seek a new trial, claiming he had such bad representation that his conviction should be reversed.

On Thursday, July 20, you’ll reportedly be able to watch O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing from the comfort of your home.

According to The Wrap, the hearing will take place at 1 p.m. EST and will aired by ESPN, among other networks. Simpson has been in jail for the past nine years for the 2007 assault, robbery and kidnapping of his associates in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Additionally, Page Six is reporting that Simpson will show up via a video feed from the Nevada prison he’s currently incarcerated in. It is uncertain whether the former Hall of Fame running back will actually be granted parole. His original sentence was for 33 years.

In 2013, Simpson was granted parole on a few of the 12 original charges, but was required to serve and additional four years for some of the weapons-related convictions, including assault with a deadly weapon.

If granted parole on all charges, The Juice will be released on October 1. A guard who’s reportedly close to O.J. claims that Simpson is nervous about the media’s presence during his hearing because he believes it’ll sway the parole board to deny his release.

Will O.J. Simpson be released this year? Let us know in the comment section below.
