Simpson was denied parole in July 2013 and 2014.

Simpson is serving a maximum term of 33 years for the September incident inside the Palace Station hotel and casino.

"He's hopeful", said Scotto of the former National Football League star, who is awaiting a parole hearing that could potentially put him on track to be released, according to ABC.

Simpson will be questioned via closed circuit television by a panel of four commissioners gathered in Carson City.

Simpson, now 70, went to jail in December 2008 for an unrelated arrest: His part in an armed Las Vegas throwdown with a pair of sports memorabilia dealers.

ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams thinks Simpson's notoriety could potentially torpedo the Heisman Trophy winner's quest for freedom.

"Simpson's age, the fact that he was given parole on the first sentencing batch, weigh in his favor".

Former NFL great and exonerated murderer O.J. Simpson may be breathing free air sooner rather than later.

"He wants to just keep a low profile, be with his kids, be with his family, play golf", Scotto said.

June 12 marked the 25th anniversary of the murders of Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.

O.J. Simpson's friend, Tom Scotto, appears at an evidentiary hearing for Simpson in Clark County District Court, on May 14, 2013, in Las Vegas.

Simpson's murder trial was brought back into the spotlight a year ago with the FX miniseries "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" that featured Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson. He could be released as soon as October. If the commissioners decide not to grant parole, they would then decide the date for the next meeting, which could be up to five years away.

O.J. Simpson may be one step closer to becoming a free man.

"He committed a frightful heinous crime", said Kim Goldman, Ron's sister, "and I have no feeling except rot in hell".
