Well, it happened . . . and it really shouldn't be a surprise: O.J. SIMPSON was granted parole yesterday. So after serving 9 years of a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery, he'll be a free man in October.
The four-man parole board in Carson City, Nevada voted unanimously to set him free. Ironically, one of the reasons they cited was his LACK OF PRIOR CONVICTION.
O.J. looked and sounded great, especially for a guy who just turned 70. That'll probably be disappointing to a lot of people, but what can I do about it?
The hearing was interesting, because everyone ignored the fact that O.J. murdered two people. I mean, they had to, since in the eyes of the law, he DIDN'T. But it still led to some interesting soundbytes from The Juice. Such as . . .
"I've always been a guy that pretty much got along with everybody."
"I've basically spent a conflict-free life."
