O.J. Simpson Pleads for Early Parole

At his first parole hearing Thursday, O.J. Simpson requested that the Nevada parole board reduce his prison sentence.

The disgraced football legend, who is serving a 33-year sentence for attempting to rob two sports memorabilia dealers, tried to convince the board that he's been a model inmate since being locked up five years ago. He said, "I missed my two younger kids, for the most part, getting through high school," and added that he also was unable to attend his sister's funeral.

The Nevada parole board will likely rule on O.J.'s request next week. Even if he's granted the request, the earliest he could be released is in four years.
