OJ Simpson, who is now 70 years old, is expected to be paroled on Thursday after 9 years in prison. He could be released October 1st if granted parole. Those in the know say that he has served his minimum sentence of 9 years and that in parole in Nevada is based almost entirely on one’s conduct while in prison. He apparently has had no administrative punishments while in prison.

The seriousness and circumstances of the offense apparently are not factors, as well as his role in the death of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman many years ago. In Tennessee, the parole board could consider those as factors. I am interested in how everyone weighs in on whether he should be granted parole or not.

What do you think some deciding factors should be when parole is considered for a violent or repeat offender?
