The imprisoned football legend and movie star says that he has found a new faith in the Nevada prison, where he has been living since 2008. O.J. Simpson’s sentence stems from charges of kidnapping and armed robbery in relation to an incident where he claims he was taking back memorabilia that he was never fully paid for.

 The incident took place at the Palace Station hotel-and-casino in Las Vegas. Now, in the same Vegas area prison where he has been carrying out his sentence, he has been studying Islam and the Qur’an. Other inmates say that he is professing the new found faith openly and is very serious about it.

One inmate explained that “O.J. really thought that he was going to be successful in a bid for a new trial and eventually be released from prison. But now he’s not eligible for parole until late 2017, which has angered him.”

In a bid to change his life, he has looked inward. Through his friendship with former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, the 67-year-old Simpson has taken on the study of Islam and its pillars of faith, but according to his cellmate, his first Ramadan fast was a rough one, causing the Juice to break fast a few times.

“O.J. didn’t quite make it through the entire fasting process. He cheated during the day, and bought snacks from the prison canteen. But he’s really serious about converting to Islam. O.J. even made himself a prayer rug for his prison cell. He really likes the idea that upon converting to Islam, all of his previous sins are forgiven. O.J. has a lot to be forgiven for.”
