O.J. Simpson to get another shot at parole

O.J. Simpson will get another shot at parole this July — with the dad of murder victim Ron Goldman hoping the notorious NFL Hall of Famer gets blocked.

“I don’t care for it. He’s a bad guy. I don’t like the notion he would be walking free, at all,” Fred Goldman told the Daily News on Monday.

Simpson, 69, has spent close to nine years at Lovelock prison in Nevada for his armed robbery of two memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel. If he wins parole, his release date would be in October, according to the Nevada Department of Corrections.

He was denied parole at hearings in 2013 and 2014. Barring early release, Simpson will remain locked up until 2022.

Ronald Goldman, 25, and Simpson’s estranged wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, were stabbed to death on June 12, 1994. Simpson was charged with their shocking murders, but a jury acquitted the former Buffalo Bills star.

Fred Goldman sued for wrongful death, and a jury returned a whopping $33.5 million civil judgment against Simpson.

The grieving dad’s relentless pursuit of payment put pressure on Simpson and his assets, including his valuable memorabilia.

It was in September 2007 that Simpson led a ragtag group of men into a room at the Palace Station hotel-casino to steal some of his mementos at gunpoint.

At his sentencing, Simpson admitted he was “stupid” and apologized. The judge still slapped him with a stiff sentence. The date of Simpson’s summer parole hearing will be set next month.

Fred Goldman said he’ll continue to pursue Simpson if The Juice is set loose.

“We’re always on the lookout for ways to nail him. That’s an ongoing situation,” Goldman told The News.
