O.J. Simpson may be released from prison in October

The Juice might get loose this fall.

NFL Hall-of-Famer turned prison inmate O.J. Simpson is due for a July 20 parole hearing that could spring the one-time double-murder suspect after nearly nine years in prison.

Simpson, 70, went to jail in December 2008 for his part in an armed Las Vegas throwdown with a pair of sports memorabilia dealers.

Nevada inmate No. 1027820, currently imprisoned at the Lovelock Correctional Center, could walk free as soon as Oct. 1, depending on the parole board’s finding.

Simpson is serving a maximum term of 33 years for the September incident inside the Palace Station hotel and casino.

The one-time Heisman Trophy winner claimed he was only trying to recover memorabilia that belonged to him.

A panel of four commissioners gathered in Carson City, Nev., will question Simpson via closed-circuit television.

Simpson had once won the Heisman Trophy.

His Nevada sentencing came 13 years to the day after his acquittal in the so-called “Trial of the Century,” where the retired running back was cleared of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, and her friend, Ron Goldman, 25.
