ESPN will televise OJ Simpson's parole hearing live on Thursday

On July 20, Simpson will appear in front of the Nevada Board of Parole via video, and after reviewing his prison record, they'll determine if he's to be set free.

Simpson has served almost nine years in prison following the armed robbery at the Palace Station hotel-casino in Las Vegas in September 2007. He is now in prison serving a maximum 33-year sentence after being convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery charges back in 2008. In a statement published on its website, the parole board said all commissioners use the same risk assessment and guidelines, adding, "There is no evidence that the board is aware of that indicates that one location has panel members who are more conservative or liberal than the other location".

If Simpson is paroled, I get one Alexander Hamilton, and Simpson walks out of prison on October 1 at the age of 70 ... a life eons longer than other black men accused of far less.

Simpson was convicted of trying to take pieces of sports memorabilia he claimed were stolen from him.

The public's fascination with Simpson hasn't ebbed since his era-defining arrest (and acquittal) for the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

Four of the men with Simpson, Michael McClinton, Walter Alexander, Charles Ehrlich, and Charles Cashmore pleaded against him after accepting plea deals, and received probation.

"They're looking at the severity of the crime. they're looking at the individual's personal and prior criminal history, they're looking at histories of drug abuse, alcohol abuse" and other factors, said Patton, one of the former parole board chairs. If the board votes against him, Simpson could stay in prison until 2022.

The hearing will be streamed from Lovelock Correction Center, where Simpson has been since 2008.

Another former parole board chairman, Thomas Patton, told NBC that the current board will not be swayed "by something that was put out in a media context". "A decision (on Simpson) is being made at the time of the hearing so that the board's operation can return to normal as soon as possible after the hearing".
