After serving 9 years in prison for armed robbery, O.J. Simpson (70) was granted parole. He could be released on October 1.
From ABC News:
Simpson said in his nine years behind bars, he's been "a good guy."
"I was always a good guy, but could have been a better Christian, and my commitment to change is to be a better Christian."
He said he took an "alternative to violence" course in prison, and called it "the most important course anybody in this prison can take because it teaches you how to deal with conflict through conversation."
"I had some problems with fidelity in my life, but I've always been a guy that pretty much got along with everybody," he said.
