The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners casted a unanimous vote on Thursday to grant O.J. Simpson parole and allow him to be released from prison on Oct. 1, 2017.

Simpson will be released after serving nine of his 33-year sentence after being convicted of robbery and kidnapping in 2008.

While all four of the commissioners voted in favor of Simpson’s parole, Twitter users had mixed feelings about the decision.
