(CNN) – O.J. Simpson could get out of prison later this year if a parole hearing goes his way.
The hearing will take place in July, according to a spokesman for the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners.
Depending on the outcome, the “Juice” could be loose as soon as Oct. 1.
The former pro football star was famously acquitted in 1995 in the slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
Sixty-nine-year-old Simpson has been serving a 9 to 33 year sentence for his role in a 2007 incident that unfolded in a Las Vegas hotel room.
He and armed associates confronted two men and took pieces of Simpson’s memorabilia from them.
Simpson said at his sentencing, he was trying to reclaim personal items that had been stolen from him and he was unaware his associates were carrying guns.
At least four of seven commissioners will have to vote in Simpson’s favor in order for him to be released.
TMZ is reporting is that some production companies said they would consider a show featuring Simpson but it would likely be pay per view and not a broadcast or cable network show.
