    Former football star and convicted criminal OJ Simpson is expected to have his parole hearing later on Thursday, which could see him released from prison.

    Simpson was the subject of one of the US' most sensational murder trials, but he was acquitted in a ruling that stirred nationwide controversy about race and the criminal justice system.

    An unrelated crime later in his life landed him in jail.

    Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Los Angeles.
