LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- OJ Simpson is expected to fight for his release from prison this week. 

Simpson is due to be questioned Thursday by parole commissioners who sided with him once before. The former NFL running back and actor has served more than eight years for armed robbery and kidnapping after trying retrieve sports memorabilia.

The 70-year-old has a clean record behind bars while serving his sentences.

Simpson was acquitted in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1995.
