Mark Fuhrman and O.J. Simpson will be reunited once again. Fuhrman will be working for Fox News in providing “contributions and analysis” during Simpson’s parole hearing in front of the Nevada Board of Parole on Thursday.
Fuhrman, 65, was the first police officer on the scene at Simpson’s home after the dead bodies of the former Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were found.
It was Fuhrman who discovered the infamous black glove in Simpson’s back yard and was pinned by the prosecution as their star witness in the case. However, he was actually ripped apart on the stand by the defense and committed perjury when he falsely claimed he had not used the word “n*****” in the previous 10 years.
Fuhrman was ultimately the only person to be convicted of a criminal charge in the trial.
Simpson, 69, was convicted on counts of armed robbery and kidnapping for a 2007 incident in Las Vegas and received a 33-year sentence. He remains behind bars on just one of the eight counts for which he was ordered to serve time – assault with a deadly weapon.
His parole hearing this week could result in his release from a medium-security Nevada prison as early as Oct. 1. Lawyers are speculating that he will likely make parole.
