How much money O.J. Simpson could have made while in prison

O.J. Simpson was granted parole this week after being in prison for nearly nine years and, turns out, he's coming into some cash once he's released in as early as October.

ESPN did the math and calculated some public data on NFL pension credit per season per month, as well as a settlement in 2011 that upped that pension.

If he started taking money out at age 55 he would have made $423,570 while in prison.

However, according to ESPN, waiting until age 65 ups the pension value.

Meaning, if Simpson waited until he turned 65 to start taking the money out he could have made $602,205.

This money can't be collected by the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman as part of their 1997 civil trial win because pension money is protected by Florida law.

Which is why experts believe Simpson will return to Miami after his release.

Six hundred grand isn't exactly Brentwood, but Simpson left that life a long time ago.
