OJ Simpson Gets Nevada Parole Hearing

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) _ OJ Simpson says he regrets the night he robbed two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room but adds he’s been a model inmate while serving his time at a northern Nevada prison.

Simpson asked a two-member state panel Thursday to grant him parole on five charges. But even if parole is granted, he would still have to serve at least four more years in prison because of other sentences imposed for other charges.

The 66-year-old Simpson said he’s been a model inmate while serving his time at Lovelock Correction Center 90 miles east of Reno, where he has been since 2008 when he was sentenced to up to 33 years.

He appeared before the panel via video from the prison. A decision on whether to grant parole is expected next week.
