O.J. Simpson has just been granted parole, he's set to be released on October 1.

He was convicted in 2008 for an armed robbery and sent to jail for 33 years. After serving the minimum nine years of his sentence, he will be released for good behaviour, lack of prior conviction as well as low risk of committing another crime.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you," he said after hearing the decision of the parole board.

During the hearing, Simpson said that "I've spent nine years making no excuses about anything. I am sorry that things turned out the way they did."

In 1995 Simpson was on trial for murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, charge he was found NOT guilty of. Independent of the result of that trial, he was found liable for the two deaths in in a civil court in 1997 and ordered to pay $33.5 million to survivors. Many people still believe he managed to get away with murder.

Once O.J. is released on October 1, as part of the parole he will have certain restrictions. For example, while he will be allowed to drink, his blood alcohol content can't ever be more than .08 when tested.
