OJ Simpson

O.J. Simpson was convicted for his part in a September 2007 crime in which he and several accomplices entered a Las Vegas hotel room and took hundreds of pieces of memorabilia from two men. One of the men with Simpson brandished a gun during the incident, and Simpson ordered no one could leave the room. Simpson said he was trying to retrieve items that belonged to him, including family photos, but the group left with many items that had nothing to do with Simpson. He was convicted in October 2008 on all 12 counts - three counts of conspiracy; one count of burglary with use of a deadly weapon; and two counts each of kidnapping, robbery, assault and coercion, all with use of a deadly weapon. In 2013 The Nevada Board of Parole granted Simpson parole on five of the counts for which he was convicted.  Simpson will now have a parole hearing on the remaining counts for which he was convicted.
