Answer: $600,000

If you’re wondering how O.J. Simpson was making money while serving time in prison, you can thank the National Football League for that.  When O.J. was granted parole this past July, ESPN Senior Writer, Darren Rovell ran through the math of how much Simpson could have made while behind bars. Long story short, “The Juice” has been collecting a monthly stipend from his NFL pension. The kicker is that, due to state laws, this money belongs completely to him, and cannot be touched by the Goldman family. A lawyer for the Goldman family claimed that Simpson now owes $65 million, as the original settlement has accrued interest since it was originally granted.
