Potential Problem with OJ Parole

OJ Simpson could be denied parole after he was caught pleasuring himself in his cell – strictly verboten in federal prisons in the U.S. – a prison source has told Dailymail.com.

‘OJ is facing a disciplinary hearing after being written up for masturbating in his prison cell,’ said the source. ‘He was caught by a female corrections officer making her normal rounds in late June.’ Dailymail.com confirmed with Lovelock Correctional Center that it does employ female corrections officers.

When OJ, now 70, goes in front of the Nevada Department of Corrections Parole Board on Thursday, he still won’t have faced a disciplinary hearing for the masturbation charge, which, says the source, could pose a problem for him. OJ has served almost nine-years of a 33-year sentence for a 2008 conviction for kidnapping and robbery when the disgraced football hero and his pals confronted a pair of memorabilia dealers with loads of OJ souvenirs at the Palace State Hotel and Casino on September 13, 2007. Most observers believe he will be granted parole after meeting with the four DOC parole board members on July 20. Simpson will appear remotely from Locklock in front of the four-member parole board in Carson City, Nevada, via video conference at 1 p.m.
