O.J. Simpson regrets going after memorabilia
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- O.J. Simpson pleaded for leniency on his armed robbery and kidnapping sentence before a Nevada parole board hearing.
He expressed regret for his actions Thursday and described himself as an upstanding inmate who earns pennies an hour keeping gym equipment sanitized and umpiring and coaching games in the prison yard.
Simpson noted that he has made amends with his victims in a botched heist of memorabilia in a hotel room in Las Vegas in 2007.
Parole officials did not immediately rule on his request, which Simpson made remotely from a video conference room the Lovelock Correction Center. But their decision will have little impact on his overall sentence because he is only eligible for parole on one of his consecutive sentences.
