"i have four kids. i have missed alot. i am a giving guy. i am at a point in my lfie, i want to spend as much time with my chldren and friends. i have done my tine and i have done my best. there was a light moment in the hearing - at the beginning when a commissioner made a mistake about o.j's birthday.

(grant) oj simpson could be released as early as october 1st. there is still work to be done though.(terisa) kron 4's j.r. stone is in carson city, nevada tonight where that parole board meeting was held. he joins us live. j.r. what does it look like out there tonight and what's next for o.j.? after making their decision today commissioners left the building pretty quickly and o.j. simpson went back to cell life. it appears that when he gets out he may be headed to florida. o.j. simpson was all smiles on thursday. but when it comes to getting back to florida, the state where he resided before the robbery, and the state where he will likely request to goit is a waiting game for simpson, who needs approval to go there.sot in florida when they do their investigation
5:03 pm
they will make the determination of whether or not they will accept his case simpson has been vocal in the past about his desire to move back to florida. a location where his family would be able to serve as a support system for him. there are strong chances that officials in florida would accept a request from simpson according to those that spoke thursday.sot in the case of either a returning resident or resident family the acceptance rate as long as there is a valid plan of supervision is highnevada parole commissioners approved simpsons release saying he has a minimal criminal conviction history, has a positive record behind bars, and his own robbery victim is in support of his parole. factors that florida will look at if and when they officially receive his request to move there. they'll also look at what his family members said to the parole board.sot so on behalf of my family my brother my sister aunt uncle his friends we just want him to come home we really do we want him to come home and i know in my heart that he is very humbled.

5:32 pm
"mr president, does attorney general sessions still have your support?""thank you."not exactly a ringing endorsement. the president's deputy press secretary didnt offer much more."clearly he has confidence in him or he would not be the attorney general." president trump ignited the latest controversy by telling the new york times that sessions disappointed him when he recused himself from the russia investigation.he called the move, "extremely unfair to the president". sessions should never have recused himself, and if he would, if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and i would have picked somebody else."the recusal came after the media learned sessions had failed to disclose meetings with a russian ambassador during the trump campaign.sessions found an unlikely ally today in liberal massachusetts democrat, senator elizabeth warren. "he followed the rules that are in place at the department of justice on recusal. and for donald trump to say, 'gee, i had in mind to have an attorney general who would not follow the law' is just stunning, and it tells you once again that donald trump is out for exactly one thing.
