OJ Simpson will fight for his release from prison this Thursday. There will be reporters in Carson City at the Nevada Board of Parole where the hearing will be.
Simpson, 69, was found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges stemming from a confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room. Simpson was granted parole on a few charges in 2013, but was sentenced to return to prison for other charges that he was not yet eligible for parole for.
As Simpson's release eligibility date is not until Oct.1, he will not be released until then if the parole board decides to free him, notes NBC.
Simpson was convicted after breaking into a Las Vegas hotel room on September 13, 2007, with the help of several other men and stealing sports memorabilia he claimed belonged to him.
Simpson was tried and acquitted of murdering his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman, in California in the 1990s.
O.J. Simpson reportedly thinks he will be released from prison soon.
If they grant parole, he could be released October 1.

One of the big positives is that it doesn't rely on users knowing each other's phone numbers, like with Whatsapp and others. This messaging app will let users chat with friends, enjoy videos and play games at the same time just like Facebook .
For those looking to see O.J. Simpson in the mix, unfortunately, the convicted criminal will only be making his appearance via video conference from the prison.
"That's really the beauty of the system: It's the same for everyone", said Dorla Salling, a parole board chair from 2000-2009.
Also interviewed are Simpson's fellow accomplices Clarence "CJ" Stewart, who served time with him, and Walter Alexander, who along with McClinton testified against him.
But unlike his first parole hearing in 2013, where there was no pre-hype or press permitted, this time arrangements are being made for a media circus at both locations. Scotto said Simpson is "very positive".
If it is denied, Simpson would have to wait another four years to apply for parole again.
Now 70, Simpson has history in his favor and a clean record behind bars while serving his sentences for a 2007 armed robbery.
