O.J. Simpson was granted parole Thursday — meaning he will be a free man as early as Oct. 1.
But what will Simpson’s life be like when he gets out of jail? Simpson still owes tens of millions of dollars in the wake of a 1997 civil lawsuit, in which he was found liable for the wrongful deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the survivors’ families.
Even so, Simpson will probably be quite comfortable financially when he is released from jail, thanks to pensions that may pay out more than $25,000 per month — funds that aren’t subject to seizure by creditors.
The 70-year-old former football star, who was tried and acquitted in 1995 for the murder of Brown and Goldman, is currently incarcerated because he was found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges in Las Vegas. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison, with a nine-year minimum. He has already served more than eight years.
