Say What?

O.J. Simpson is a free man

He has tumbled in the public eye from revered football hero and actor, to reviled wife abuser and murder defendant, to indebted and hapless convicted robber, but O.J. Simpson went before a Nevada parole board on Thursday flashing his usual self-assurance, telling the board that he was “a good guy” and asserting, implausibly, “I basically have spent a conflict-free life.”

Whether or not the four board members believed him, they voted unanimously to grant him parole when he first becomes eligible on Oct. 1, after nine years in state prison on charges stemming from a 2007 armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel room. — NYT
