O.J. Simpson will walk the streets again as a free man after nine long years behind bars.

On Thursday, the former NFL player’s bid for an early release was unanimously granted to him by a group of four Nevada commissioners. Simpson was to serve 33 years in prison for a 2007 Las Vegas robbery.

Simpson, 70, told his account of the armed robbery to the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners. In 2008, Simpson was convicted for his part in the robbery in which he and a group of accomplices broke into a Las Vegas hotel room in pursuit of sports memorabilia Simpson believed to have belonged to him.

Described as a model prisoner during these last nine years, Simpson took full responsibility for his part in the hotel room heist.

“I’ve done my time. I’d just like to get back to my family and friends,” a remorseful Simpson said. “I’m sorry it happened. I’m sorry to Nevada… I thought I was glad to get my stuff back, but it wasn’t worth it.”

According to the terms of his parole, Simpson can be released as early as October 1st. Upon his release, Simpson plans to relocate to Florida and serve his probation there.
