Former US football star OJ Simpson has been granted parole and will be released from prison after October 1.
He gained notoriety for the sensational murder trial in 1995 in which he was acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend.
He was convicted of armed robbery in 2008, which landed him in jail.
