serve the nine year minimum of the thirty three. year maximum sentence for that crime that he committed out where it was an armed robbery case in las vegas. another thing that he had in his favor is that in those nine years you had good behavior he had actually. not one case. ugly i am any wrongdoing as an inmatee also counseled other inmates he coached at the gym. he took classes of and he also was very sympathetic to all of the. cr and all and the workers all of the prison guards. at this correctional facility where he was out for ninety eight or so that really pleaded in his favor another thing. that also helped him was that the victim of that robbery was there to testify. in favor ofj simpson bruce romano was with one of the victims of the armed robbery back in that las vegas. a hotel room and he said that oj simpson is a good man that he's. apologized several times and he does not believe that he is a threat to society. and
