|O.j. Simpson Parole Hearing Is Coming Up ! And It Will Be Aired On Live TV|
Perhaps the nation's most famous inmate, Simpson is serving a nine-to-33-year sentence for his role in a 2007 incident in a Las Vegas hotel room.
At his 2008 sentencing, Simpson said he was trying to reclaim family heirlooms and other personal items that had been taken from him.
He claims he didn't know his associates were armed.
Simpson is no stranger to lengthy legal proceedings. In 1995, he was famously acquitted of murder charges in the slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman in what was often referred to as the "trial of the century."

Simpson's legal team has argued that his sentence for the 2007 Las Vegas incident does not match the crime.
They said it was a dose of payback for his 1995 acquittal.
Simpson, 69, has already had parole hearings in 2013 and 2014. At the 2013 hearing he was granted parole on some of his offenses.
The parole board will weigh several factors in deciding whether to release Simpson. According to Nevada defense attorney Dan Hill, Simpson fits the profile of an inmate who would receive parole at the first opportunity.
