I wish this had never happened. I wish this media circus was not happening right now." Simpson says in his summary statement to the parole board. Simpson is then told the 1995 acquittal for the Brentwood murders and the 33.5 Million dollar judgment against Simpson in the Goldman civil suit will not be considered in this case. Simpson nods with both affirmation and relief.

The Nevada Parole Board confirms that O.J. Simpson's 1994 double murder case, for which he was acquitted, will not be considered to be a factor in their decision.

Simpson: "I thought I was a good guy. I had some problems with fidelity in my life."

Simpson says "I've missed a lot of time. 36 birthdays with my children." He says he had some problems with fidelity in his life but that he is prepared to resume normal life and that "I'm not a guy that has conflicts on the street."

Simpson tells the commissioners he did not take an alcohol course and though "I had drinks on that day. It was a wedding party." But Simpson asserted he didn't need to take the course since he has never had a problem with alcohol or any other substances.

Parole Board asked for him to address alcohol issues. O.J.: "I've never had an alcohol problem....I had drinks on that day but it was a wedding celebration."

At his last parole hearing in 2013 Simpson told the commissioners he planned to take a prison course entitled "Commitment to Change." Simpson says he never took that course but offered that he took one he considers far more valuable. It was called "Alternatives to Violence" and Simpson says it's the most important course any inmate at Lovelock should take.

Simpson: "I basically have lived a conflict free life."

O.J. on his winding up in jail versus the men he was with on night of robbery: "Unfortunately, they got a 'Get Of Jail Free' card when they said that O.J. told them."

Simpson may not be doing himself any favors by elaborating for more than 10 minutes on the details of the armed robbery. His attorney Malcolm LaVergne, keeps staring at him and does not seem pleased by the lengthy explanation when all the board may have been looking for is remorse. At one point, Simpson raised his voice when a commissioner questioned him on whether the memorabilia items were actually Simpson's property. He leaned in towards the panel with some fire and told the commissioners that the fact the items were his property had been already determined legally.

O.J. Simpson says that it was ruled that the property he went to get was rightfully his, and since being in jail, has actually received that property.

Simpson says no one has ever accused him of pulling a gun on them in his life. He says it's mind boggling to him that he is in jail after having the property he was there to retrieve was ruled to be his own.

O.J. Simpson: "Nobody has ever accused me of pulling any weapon on them."

O.J. Simpson tells the Parole Board that he had no gun on his person and didn't make any threats on the day in Vegas when he went to get back his memorabilia at the hotel.

Mark Schwarz ESPN Reporter 

Simpson clarifies that contrary to media reports he did not break into the Vegas hotel room. That what actually happened was his acquaintance Tom Riccio let him into the room where his property was. He says he was surprised to find one of his friends Bruce Fromong, inside the room. Simpson also clarified another key point: that it was the two security guards he hired who were armed. Simpson testified to the parole board that he was not armed.

O.J. Simpson is testifying, talking about how he got into the position of trying to get back his memorabilia from a Vegas hotel room.

Simpson's face turned solemn when told that an aggravating factor working against him is that his victims feared for their lives. Moments earlier the parole commissioner announced that Simpson is a generally low risk in part because he had no disciplinary violations during his 8 plus years of incarceration here at Lovelock. He is now answering parole commissioner questions, explaining his thinking in committing the crime in a Las Vegas hotel where he and 4 men, some with guns drawn, broke into a room to take back memorabilia Simpson says was stolen from him.

Darren Rovell ESPN Senior Writer 

Parole Board: O.J. Simpson does not have an prior convictions and did not receive any discipline in prison, which helps to lower his risk to society score.

Mark Schwarz ESPN Reporter 

Simpson appeared somewhat caught off guard when told that his use of alcohol on the day of the 2007 armed robbery which is an aggravating factor against his chances to be granted parole. He then laughed heartily when the commissioner announced him to be 90 years old. Simpson is 70.

Parole Board says it has assessed O.J. Simpson as being an alcohol abuse risk.

Simpson chuckled when the parole commissioner referred to the large number of people in the hearing room. Several sources tell me he is not happy about what he calls a "circus-like atmosphere" created by a flood of media to this parole hearing which is quite unusual. Also unusual is that Bruce Fromong, one of two victims of the 2007 armed robbery for which Simpson is serving time, is in the room and expected to speak on Simpson's behalf.
