He still has a disciplinary hearing for the masturbation charge, which will fall after today’s parole hearing. A source told the Daily Mail this could cause a delay in his parole date or lead to an outright denial.
Prior to this detail, may believed Simpson would be granted parole after serving nine years in prison. Bruce Fromong, one of the victim’s in his case, is even expected to testify on OJ’s behalf. David Roger, a retired district attorney who prosecuted Simpson, also agrees, saying, “The guy did a lot of time on a robbery charge, I expect he’ll probably be paroled.”
