O. J. Simpson is looking at another four years in jail before he is eligible for parole. Due to the news he received recently about the state of his health, he is keener than ever to be released, and has requested clemency from the president.
The Inquisitr reported early today about the fact that O.J. Simpson has recently been diagnosed with a tumor on his brain which, according to numerous reports, is in fact an advanced form of brain cancer.
In a letter he penned to President Obama, in which he asked that the president to have mercy on him due to his deteriorating health, he wrote:
Mr President, I know my life is coming to an end. Please, don’t let me die in prison. I feel the end coming. But I don’t want to die in prison like common jailhouse scum.
Celebritylaundry.com reported on January 5 that Simpson had lost hope and allowed his health to deteriorate further; he had also fallen into a state of depression. He had started a new health regime to get his diabetes under some control wanting to live healthily in prison.
But the news of the brain cancer made him give up completely, and that’s where the shock confession comes into play. Apparently inmates repeatedly asked Simpson if he’d murdered Nicole Brown to the point where he allegedly admitted that he had..
According to other reports, O.J. Simpson went a step further and said that he would do it again in a heartbeat if he were to be faced with the same situation. The reports say that since he believes he is a ‘dead man walking’ he doesn’t care what people think anymore.
Of course, no official confession has been made by O.J. Simpson about the Nicole Brown murder and, so far, speculation about his shock confession is just rumor.
Whether O.J. Simpson will in fact receive clemency for his sentence, and see an early release from jail, is now in other hands.
