Those of you who remember the “Trial of the Century”, watching it unfold on television, we will see what the future holds for O.J. Simpson once again.
According to Deadline, ESPN, along with over two dozen news organizations, plan to cover the former football star’s parole hearing this Thursday from Nevada.
O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing in Nevada this Thursday will be carried live on ESPN as an expanded, 90-minute Outside the Lines Special, and pool cameras in the hearing room make it all but certain the proceedings will pop up at least in part on other news channels.
In fact, the Nevada Board of Parole says about 30 news organizations have registered to cover the hearing at both the hearing location in Carson City and at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada, where Simpson is incarcerated on the 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping convictions.
Simpson will appear via videoconference from the prison, with four parole commissioners in Carson City.
According to experts, parole seems likely for Simpson. An ESPN special airs at 1PM this Thursday (July 20).
