FILE - This Feb. 6, 1995 file photo from video shows a courtroom projected image of a 1989 photo of Nicole Brown Simpson, taken by her sister Denise Brown, seen by jurors in O.J. Simpson's double-murder trial in Los Angeles. Denise Brown testified that she took this and one other photo of Nicole a few days after a 1989 beating by Simpson. Nevada's parole board says it didn't consider O.J. Simpson's 1989 conviction for misdemeanor spousal abuse when it granted him parole in July 2017 because it wasn't listed in the federal clearinghouse of FBI crime data.

Amos Yee, a teenage blogger from Singapore, talks to reporters outside of the U.S. immigration field office after being released from federal custody following a U.S. immigration appeals court's decision to uphold his bid for asylum, Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017, in Chicago. Yee, an atheist, was accused of hurting the religious feelings of Muslims and Christians in Singapore.
