CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A July 25 parole hearing has been scheduled in Nevada for OJ Simpson, convicted in 2008 of kidnapping and armed robbery of two sports collectible dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Simpson was convicted of 12 criminal counts and sentenced to nine to 33 years in prison. He has been serving his time at Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada, about 90 miles east of Reno.

The parole hearing comes as a Clark County District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell weighs whether the former National Football League Hall of Famer and Hollywood star deserves a new trial.

During a weeklong hearing in May, Simpson lawyers argued that he deserves a new trial because his previous attorneys botched the case that led to his conviction.

Bell has not yet ruled.
