OJ Simpson Tells Nevada Parole Board He's Sorry

Posted: Updated:

OJ Simpson says he regrets the night he robbed two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room but adds he's been a model inmate while serving his time at a northern Nevada prison.

"I'm just sorry," Simpson said by way of a video link from the Carson City Parole Board building to the Lovelock Correctional Center. "I'm sorry I went to that room that night. I wish this had never happened."

Simpson went on to explain how he's become a productive member of the Lovelock Correctional Center's population.

"I am coaching the teams, and I am an umpire for the baseball team," he said. "I am trying to get into the 'Commitment to Change program' and because people respect me some of them, the other inmates come to me to talk and I give them advice."    

Simpson asked a two-member state panel Thursday to grant him parole on five charges. But even if parole is granted, he would still have to serve at least four more years in prison because of other sentences imposed for other charges.

Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass sentenced Simpson in December 2008 to nine to 33 years in prison on charges including first-degree kidnapping and robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

A decision on whether to grant parole is expected next week.
