As he was led down a hall, the former athlete raised his hands over his head in a victory gesture and said, "Oh, God, oh!"

Simpson is expected to make the case that he has been a model prisoner, receiving no demerits in the time he has been incarcerated.

Others approved of the long sentence, deeming it fitting following his 1995 acquittal of the murders of O.J.'s ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman. About 120 miles northeast of the board's offices, Simpson will participate by video conference at Lovelock Correctional Center, the medium-security prison where he has been for nearly nine years.

Gray-haired but looking trimmer than he has in recent years, Simpson walked stiffly into the hearing room in jeans, a light-blue prison-issue shirt and sneakers.

"It really made us all aware that, despite our best efforts, it's very hard to separate the California case from the Nevada case", Simpson's lawyer Yale Galanter said at the time.

In 2013 Simpson scored a three - putting him in a low-risk category before he was granted parole.

Simpson will return to family life in Florida.

I had a good pitch shot on the seventh and even though it didn't hit the green it was a better strike, a better golf shot. It wasn't I couldn't look within myself, I was trying to look within myself.
