Simpson's parole hearing, scheduled for next Thursday (July 20), is expected to air live on ESPN and other networks, per Bleacher Report.

Walter Alexander, who avoided jail time in return for testifying against Simpson, said the former National Football League star didn't think they were committing any crimes.

"That's really the beauty of the system: It's the same for everyone", said Dorla Salling, a parole board chair from 2000-2009. "It doesn't matter what your name is".

Simpson's parole hearing takes place on July 20.

The commissioners will examine Simpson's behavior in prison, and ask him questions about his plans for the future - including where he intends to live if released.

The public's fascination with Simpson hasn't ebbed since his era-defining arrest (and acquittal) for the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. Recently, Simpson's case has gotten much more interest, largely due to two outstanding television series about O.J. and his infamous murder case.

Four members of the six-person parole board will be in the hearing room in Carson City.

Simpson, along with five other men, broke into the room and took back several items he thought belonged to him, including plaques, game balls, and photographs of his children. At a 2008 trial, Simpson was found guilty of 12 counts, including robbery and kidnapping, and sentenced to nine years minimum and 33 years maximum.

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.

Walter Alexander avoided jail time by testifying against Simpson.

Another accomplice, Clarence C.J. Stewart, went on to trial and was convicted, but his case was overturned by the Nevada Supreme Court after it ruled he was denied a fair trial. He has been incarcerated at Lovelock Correctional Center since December 2008.

The board will look at Simpson's personal and past criminal background, as well as whether he has a history of drug or alcohol abuse, along with the severity of the crime, said Patton. "He is asking why they are fostering a circuslike environment for his hearing".
