Early on Friday morning (NZ time), one of America's most famous criminals will learn if he's being released on parole.
OJ Simpson was jailed for armed robbery - but many think he'd previously got away with murder.
The imprisoned former football star has a parole hearing set for 1pm on Thursday (local time), and it has big implications.
If it's successful, Simpson could be released as early as October 1 from the Nevada prison where he's served more than eight years for armed robbery and kidnapping.
Legal experts say Simpson, 70, has a good chance of receiving parole and walking away from the remainder of his nine- to 33-year sentence.
In 1995, Simpson was acquitted in a criminal trial in Los Angeles, for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
