SHAMED American football star OJ Simpson is to be released nine years into a 33-year prison sentence for armed robbery.

According to new reports, the former National Football League star was told by the four panel members that he will be released when eligible, which is in October of this year.

Simpson told the commissioners that he stayed very active throughout his nine years in prison. He says Simpson's almost nine years behind bars is "way too long" and that it's time for him to go home to his family and friends.

"I would have done anything, anything not to have that happen", he said.

Simpson was acquitted of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995 after they stabbed to death in June 1994. Simpson has asserted that he was retrieving items that had been stolen from him and sold as memorabilia, but police said he broke into a hotel room and robbed its occupants at gunpoint.

"I've done my time", Simpson claimed to the Nevada panel. Simpson maintained he was not to blame and that his associates should also have served time.

"I've always thought I've been pretty good with people".

Marguerite and O.J. were married from 1967 to 1979 and had two other children together, Jason Simpson and Aaren Simpson - who passed away from accidental drowning when she was 2 years old.

The Nevada Parole Board that has made a decision to let OJ Simpson out of prison has removed the elephant from the room - his murder acquittals.

In 2013 the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners granted him parole on some of his convictions, but for not the more violent charges.

Mr. Fromong said Mr. Simpson did not pull a gun on him and admitted that he did possess some of his sports memorabilia. "It's basically been a conflict-free life", he continued. I feel like it's time to give him a second chance and let him go home to his friends and family. "I'd just like to get back to my family and friends - believe it or not, I do have some real friends - and I tried to be helpful to everybody".

His eldest daughter, Arnelle, also spoke on behalf of her father.

I realize in my nine years here, that I was a good guy on the street...

Keast said: "We just don't want anyone trying to make a name for themselves".
