- September 2007: Simpson, accompanied by five men, confronts two sports-memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room, angrily telling them that most of the memorabilia they are planning to sell is rightfully his.

O.J. Simpson has served nearly nine years of a nine-to-33-year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping. "I've basically spent a conflict-free life", he said.

"The big question is, if Simpson is paroled, how would he be received?"

Simpson has good odds of being cleared of his remaining counts Thursday, according to legal experts.

Simpson responded emotionally, saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you". If Simpson is granted parole Thursday, it will show that our justice system, which is far from flawless in many ways, worked the way it's supposed to.

The NFL won't say how much he'll get from his NFL pension, and it's hard to estimate without knowing some key details, such as when he made a decision to start collecting benefits.

Bruce Fromong, the robbery victim, said Simpson was a good man who had a mistake and should now be given a second chance.

Simpson's friend, Tom Scotto, told ABC News that Simpson is "hopeful". "He knew he was going to get paroled and that's all he thought about", Felix said.

"I'm not a guy that has conflicts in the street, I don't expect to have any when I leave here" he told the parole board.
