OJ Simpson could be released from prison on parole as early as Monday.

He won parole in July due to good behaviour and other credits earned in custody.

And the 70-year-old could now be let out as early as Monday if his papers are signed and approved.

A state parole board set Sunday October 1 as the date Simpson becomes eligible for parole – but his release will not be until at least the next working day.

Once released, he will be supervised by the state Division of Parole and Probation until September 29, 2022.

Simpson still remains at Lovelock Correctional Centre in northern Nevada, state Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast said.

He is currently awaiting transfer to High Desert State Prison outside Las Vegas where he will be freed, she added.

Simpson’s close pal Tom Scotto said he is scheduled to be released “shortly after” October 1, but refused to confirm the exact date.

The disgraced sportsman was acquitted in 1995 of murder charges over the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

He was found liable for the killings in civil court two years later and ordered to pay the victims’ families $33.5million (£25million).

And in September 2007, Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with numerous felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping after a group of men led by him entered a room at the Palace Station hotel-casino and took sports memorabilia at gunpoint.
