A parole board is expected to recommend the release of O.J. Simpson from prison based on good behavior, according to FOX News.

The hearing is scheduled to begin the week of July 3, and experts believe the board will vote to release the disgraced former NFL star on Oct. 3, which is the earliest possible date for his parole.
