Commissioners on Thursday.
Simpson, 70, will speak to the same four board members who granted him parole on some of his charges in 2013. They will consider factors including “Simpson’s age, whether his conviction was for a violent crime, his prior criminal record and his plans after release” when deciding whether to grant him further parole, the board has said.
