"I've done my time. I've done it as well and as respectfully as I think anybody can." O.J. Simpson was granted parole Thursday after spending 9 years in prison for a botched sports memorabilia robbery in a #LasVegas hotel room.

โ€œThank you, thank you, thank you,โ€ an emotional Simpson told four members of the #Nevada Board of Parole. He could walk free as early as October 1. The 70-year-old presented himself to the parole commissioners as a family man who has missed dozens of his childrenโ€™s birthdays while behind bars and a devout #Christian who has led an essentially โ€œconflict-free life.โ€

Simpson was acquitted in the 1995 murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. He was found liable for the double homicide in a 1997 civil case.
