CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – Nevada’s parole board says it didn’t consider O.J. Simpson’s 1989 conviction for misdemeanor spousal abuse when it granted his release because it wasn’t listed in the national clearinghouse of FBI crime data.
The disclosure comes as a Nevada lawmaker proposed legislation Tuesday to require the board to consider an inmate’s domestic violence history before approving parole.
The parole board said in July it wouldn’t consider a civil judgment that found Simpson liable for the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.
A board spokesman says the domestic abuse case wasn’t included in a report from the National Crime Information Center.
Simpson is expected to be released from prison in October, possibly as soon as Sunday.
