LOVELOCK, NV — O.J. Simpson, the former football great and one time accused double murderer now serving a 9-33 year prison sentence for kidnapping and burglary, may have jacked up his chances at parole after being caught masturbating within public view.
Simpson, who was famously acquitted of killing his ex wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman only to be found responsible for the brutal slayings by a civil court jury, is expected to face the Nevada parole board on July 20. Although many legal analysts had predicted that he was likely to receive parole based on good behavior, this latest slip up may have caused the now 70 year old to lose his last chance at freedom.
While celebrity website TMZ reports the story can not be authenticated (http://www.tmz.com/2017/07/19/o-j-simpson-masturbating-prison-parole-hearing/), other news sites are claiming sources inside the prison have confirmed the apparent violation.
According to the New York Post (http://nypost.com/2017/07/19/o-j-s-parole-was-almost-derailed-by-a-cookie/), ‘The Juice’ was allegedly caught fondling his fruit in his cell, which is in plain view of other inmates. The act of self passion was reportedly discovered by a female prison guard as she was on patrol.
“O.J. is facing a disciplinary hearing after being written up for masturbating in his prison cell,” a prison source told The Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4710666/OJ-Simpson-caught-masturbating-cell-impact-parole.html). “He was caught by a female corrections officer making her normal rounds,” the source told The Daily Mail. “While it’s not the most serious charge to be written up for in prison, it’s serious enough that any potential parole date may be delayed or his parole denied altogether.”
Simpson has served nearly nine-years of a 33-year sentence for a 2008 conviction for kidnapping and robbery. According to prosecutors, Simpson and members of his entourage confronted a pair of memorabilia dealers who were in possession of Simpson items at the Palace State Hotel and Casino on September 13, 2007 and held the men at gunpoint as they forcibly took the items back.
Simpson was sentenced to 33 years behind bars after a jury found him guilty of all ten counts with which he was charged on October 3, 2008 – exactly 13 years to the day after the B-list movie actor and Hertz spokesperson was acquitted of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.
No other arrests were ever made in the Brown-Goldman killings.
