"It really is based on points, " Galanter said.
"He's been a model inmate. By all accounts, he's totally abided by the rules".
It's important to remember that Simpson was imprisoned as a result of a botched Las Vegas robbery - a farce of a crime in which Simpson was trying to recover his own memorabilia.
Simpson has served almost nine years in prison following the armed robbery at the Palace Station hotel-casino in Las Vegas in September 2007.
Simpson, who just turned 70 on July 9, has served eight years of his 33-year sentence that was handed down to him in 2008. According to Scotto, Simpson may walk free after meeting parole board members on Thursday. That documentary, along with the FX miniseries on the Simpson case, The People v. O.J. Simpson, offered clear data that the appetite for Simpson material remains high, even with the disgraced and incarcerated NFL Hall of Famer out of public view for many years.
Those parole board commissioners must decide whether one of the most infamous men in the nation, imprisoned almost a decade ago for a bungled Las Vegas robbery, walks out of prison.
"Assuming that he's behaved himself in prison, I don't think it will be out of line for him to get parole", David Roger, the retired Clark County district attorney, told the AP.
The 2007 crime, during which Simpson and others stole some 800 items from a Las Vegas hotel room, came a little over a decade after he was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.
Simpson will have an opportunity to address the board by video conference as he did during the 2013 hearing. "The law said he didn't do it".
Normally, a parole hearing like this wouldn't make national news. I wish I had never gone to that room.
O.J. Simpson's parole hearing is next week, and according to the Bleacher Report, numerous networks will be airing it live. His release date would likely be October 1.
