According to dailymail OJ Simpson risks being denied parole today after he was caught masturbating in his prison cell. “This act is strictly forbidden in federal prisons in the U.S. and for this reason, the former athlete is facing a disciplinary hearing.”
“He was caught by a female corrections officer in June as she was making her rounds. Simpson was a model inmate ever since he entered Lovelock Correctional Center in 2008, until he was caught pleasuring himself. It is believed this might affect his parole hearing when he goes in front of the Nevada Department of Corrections Parole Board on Thursday.
A source told Dailmail: “While it’s not the most serious charge to be written up for in prison, it’s serious enough that any potential parole date may be delayed or his parole denied all together.”
Most observers believe Simpson will be granted parole after meeting with the four DOC parole board members on July 20. He will appear remotely from Locklock in front of the four-member parole board in Carson City, Nevada, via video conference at 1 p.m.
Retired Clark County DA David Roger, who won convictions against Simpson in 2008 for robbery and kidnapping also believes Simpson will be paroled. He said the disgraced footballer has done enough time rotting inside a Nevada prison cell.
“The guy did a lot of time on a robbery charge, I expect he’ll probably be paroled,” Roger said.
