A conviction that likely would have kept the terrifying killer in prison. According to the NCIC, a national database of criminal information and convictions, O.J Simpson had a 1989 battery conviction that nobody apparently knew about in Nevada. The database shows (per a New York Times report) that O.J. was convicted of battery against former wife Nicole Brown Simpson.
Interestingly, the parole board in Nevada apparently didn’t know about the conviction. The Times discovered the conviction after digging deep into O.J’s past, and then, made an inquiry to the Nevada Parole Board. The Parole Board denies any wrongdoing, and, says that even with the discovered conviction his parole being granted still doesn’t change a thing: he’s a free man.
