LIVE: OJ Simpson could be granted parole for 2008 kidnapping, assault case

(WIS) - Former NFL running back O.J. Simpson is in court Thursday in hopes of securing parole following his 2008 conviction of kidnapping, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and conspiracy charges.

That parole board hearing begins at 1 p.m. EST.

The charges stemmed from a 2007 incident where Simpson and five men confronted a pair of sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room and angrily told them that what they were selling rightfully belonged to him.
