OJ Simpson: Coming soon to a golf course near you?

by Alan Duke, Reporter & 'Crime Stories With Nancy Grace' Co-host

OJ Simpson could be months away from walking out of the Nevada prison where he’s served nine years of a 33-year sentence for a Las Vegas armed robbery. The former NFL star and actor is expected to win parole and be freed by October, according to journalist Jim Moret.

Moret closely covered the trial where Simpson was acquitted on murder charges in the killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Brentwood waiter Ron Goldman. He was the main CNN anchor for that sensational trial in the mid-1990s and later for “Inside Edition” when Simpson was convicted in the robbery trial.

Nancy Grace and Moret discuss Simpson’s life behind bars and what his prospects are if and when he becomes a free man again in this episode of “Crime Stories.”

Alan’s journalism career began as a way to pay for his plan to become a lawyer, but he soon realized being a courtroom reporter was a lot more fun than sitting at a defense table. Duke covered many of the nation’s most sensational crime stories over his 26 years at CNN. Duke’s closely covered domestic terrorism cases for CNN, including the Oklahoma City federal building bombing, the UNABOMBER and search for Southeast bomber Eric Robert Rudolph. CNN moved Duke to Los Angeles in 2009 to cover the entertainment beat, much of his time was spent talking to cops, coroners and lawyers. His reporting on the investigation that followed Michael Jackson’s death — and two subsequent trials — included many revelations about the singer’s life and death.   Since leaving CNN in 2014, Duke has contributed to the Reelz Channel “Copycat Killers” documentary series. He is a co-founder and editor-in-chief for LeadStories.com.
