( CNN) O.J. Simpson was awarded parole Thursday after serving nearly nine years in prison for a 2007 armed robbery in Las Vegas. But the former NFL superstar and movie actor’s future outside of prison may not be so rosy.
CNN Special Report “After O.J .: The Fuhrman Tapes Revealed, ” airing Friday at 10 p.m. ET, uncovers never-before-heard an extract from the tapes that rocked the “trial of the century.”
Life outside the Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium security prison in Nevada’s high desert, could well resemble Simpson’s solitary years after he was acquitted in the slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Thursday.
“I think it will be a lot like life was between 1995 and 2007, ” Toobin said. “He was actually a pariah. His old life was gone — celebrity pitchman, sportscaster, actor, all gone.”
