Pat and Stu: O.J. Simpson could be released on parole this fall

Former NFL player O.J. Simpson could soon be released on parole after serving nine years of the 33-year sentence he received for breaking into the Las Vegas hotel room of a sports memorabilia dealer and robbing the dealer of items relating to Simpson, Pete Rose, and Joe Montana in 2008.

Simpson has been a notorious and divisive figure in America since his acquittal in 1995 of the double murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her boyfriend, Ron Goldman. Simpson's trial was a national television phenomenon, and many continue to believe that Simpson was guilty of both murders. The arrest which ultimately landed Simpson in prison was just one of Simpson's several run-ins with the law after his surprise acquittal.

Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discuss whether the sentence was fair and what factors led to such a long sentence for a relatively unremarkable crime.

"This is way too long for the crime he's serving time for," Pat says. "They gave him a sentence for Nicole (Brown Simpson) and Ronald Goldman with this crime."

Stu disagrees: "There's video of him holding a gun at people, basically holding them hostage. Which is kind of an issue."
