Ron Goldman. He was found liable during a 1997 civil case for the killings, but his prison time is for the Las Vegas robbery, not for the murders.

In 2013, Simpson was granted parole on a few of the 12 original charges, but was required to serve and additional four years for some of the weapons-related convictions, including assault with a deadly weapon.

The hearing will be held before a panel of four parole commissioners sitting in Carson City, Nev.

The 70-year-old former football and TV star - infamous for his acquittal in the 1994 murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson - would be eligible for release on October 1.

Simpson is now being held at the Lovelock Correctional Center.

According to Yale Galanter, an attorney who represented the former National Football League star during his 2008 trial, Simpson will likely walk free due to his exceptional behavior behind bars.

Dozens of media agencies from all over the country are expected to converge on Carson City, Nevada, next Thursday as a parole board will decide if Simpson has served enough time.

Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in the crime.

In 2008, Simpson was found guilty of robbing two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Roberts told Inside Edition the men who were with Simpson that night believe he has a 50/50 chance of going free and that if he was a "regular guy", he would be freed.

But the board will not take that into consideration since a jury acquitted Simpson of those charges in 1995 in what has been called "The Trial of the Century". The commission usually includes seven members, but now it has only six because a vacancy occurred June 30 and the replacement will not begin until after Simpson's hearing.

The Board of Parole Commissioners said in a statement to USA Today that its members will issue a decision on the day of this week's hearing to minimize the media circus that Simpson creates. If the board votes against him, Simpson could stay in prison until 2022.

The Nevada parole board regularly meets about three months ahead of an inmate's parole eligibility date, which is why Simpson is on next week's agenda.
