O. J. Simpson was just granted parole and could be home as early as October 1st.

According to Bleacher Report, Simpson, now 70-years old, has been locked up since 2008 after being found guilty for trying to get personal memorabilia back through an armed robbery and kidnapping.

During the hearing Simpson said, "I've done my time. I'd just like to get back to my family and friends," he said. "I'm sorry it happened. I'm sorry to Nevada ... I thought I was glad to get my stuff back, but it wasn't worth it."
