The original “OJ the Juiceman” is up for parole for
killing his ex wife back in the 90’s a Vegas memorabilia heist that he allegedly orchestrated and is “optimistic” that he will be released from prison and back to playing golf in no time.
According to USA Today:
“He says, ‘Tell them we’ll be playing golf again soon,’ ” Tom Scotto said of O.J. Sunday in a phone interview.
If paroled, Simpson, 70, is eligible for release Oct. 1.
Simpson sounded “excited’’ when he and Scotto spoke by phone last week, according to Scotto, who added that he will be in the hearing room with the former football star Thursday at Lovelock Correctional Center, where Simpson has been imprisoned for almost nine years.
In 2008, Simpson was sentenced to a minimum of nine years and a maximum of 33 years in prison for his role in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia agents at a Las Vegas hotel, and Scotto indicated Simpson is ready to reclaim his life outside of prison.
“He just says, ‘We’ll be together again, my life will go back to normal, ’ ” Scotto said. “He’s very positive. He’s always been positive.”
In life positivity is key, however, I am not so sure if being positive will be enough to release O.J. from the unforgiving grips of the people’s law. However, stranger things have happened.
Prosecutors have had it out for this guy ever since he was surprisingly acquitted of the murder of his former wife Nicole Brown and her
boyfriend Ron Goldman back in 94′. Many believe his current prison sentence is nothing short of inescapable karma for those past transgressions. Nonetheless, miracles do happen everyday so we will just have to wait and see what fate holds for the former pro athlete turned convict.
