O.J. to Parole Board:

I'm the Mother Teresa of Prison

O.J. Simpson says he’s been nothing but a saint behind bars -- a model prisoner-- and now he’s begging Nevada prison officials to go easy on him because, well,  he really didn’t do anything wrong in the first place. Suuuuure, pal.

At his first parole hearing today, O.J. said he’s spent the last five years in prison with some really bad dudes -- guys who’ve robbed banks, casinos, and gun shops.  But, he says, his crime was much different from those ... because he was merely trying to "retrieve" his OWN stuff.

O.J. is serving time at the Lovelock Correction Center for a botched robbery of sports memorabilia in a Vegas hotel room in 2007. He was convicted of kidnapping, robbery and burglary and was sentenced to up to 33 years in prison.

During the parole hearing, Simpson tried to convince a parole commissioner that he’s kept his nose clean these past few years and hasn’t gotten into any trouble while in the big house.

The board didn’t issue a ruling today -- and won’t for a couple of weeks -- but don't expect The Juice to get out of prison anytime soon.

Because he's serving concurrent and consecutive sentences for crimes stemming from the Vegas incident -- O.J. will have to serve AT LEAST a few more years behind bars, even with a favorable ruling from the parole board.

Guess the search for the "real killer" will still have to wait ...

If he would like to get out he needs to start taking responsibility for his crime and not make excuses. Being that he got away with murder and was to stupid to stay out of trouble I guess he will be in jail for a long time.

When I saw the headline, "O.J. to Parole Board: I'm the Mother Teresa of Prison". It gave me a big laugh. Thanks, I needed that.

Get real. You are in jail for murdering two people. No one is going to care if they throw away the key!

The very mentally disturbed Jason Simpson, is the killer of the casual lovers. OJ's plan to protect his son worked perfectly.

The "stuff" was items that should have been turned over to the Goldman's. He hid it by giving it to someone else. If he had just done what he was supposed to do to begin with, he wouldn't be in jail today. Karma.

Interesting -- Goldmans took OJ down.
`
-- OJ hid his belongings from the Goldmans.
-- His belongings were stolen by the people hiding them.
-- OJ "retrieved" his belongings using cohorts with guns.

Denying you committed a crime is not the way to gain favor with the parole board. OJ will stay put if that's his attitude.

Realty is, some people can bet totally sane in every area of their lives, except when it comes to women, or money, etc. They can become total wackjobs. OJ's jealousy ended up with 2 people dead. His idiocy regarding money ended his ass in jail. I'm sure Jack the Ripper was a nice guy once, too.

He took NO ACCOUNTABILITY for his crimes.
He justified his actions.
`
#1 rule... Admit to your crime.
#2 rule... Show remorse for your actions.
#3 rule... Have completed long-term therapy.
