Florida AG: OJ Simpson isn't welcome here

Posted October 04, 2017

Simpson was granted parole at a hearing in July and his earliest release date was set for October 1, but he had widely been expected to be freed no earlier than Monday.

After spending nine years in prison for a Las Vegas robbery, the former National Football League player and movie star quietly walked out of Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Institute at 12:08 a.m. local time Sunday, according to the Nevada Department of Corrections.

Additionally, Cook noted that the National Football League star's children have made several major real estate purchases in Florida, with the attorney questioning whether Simpson helped finance the deals.

"You're not gonna report in [to parole officers] by mail, O.J. Simpson", she warned.

O.J. Simpson was startled Sunday as a photographer approached him at a Nevada gas station not long after his release from prison.

It seems like a belated effort by Florida to put the wheels in motion to keep Simpson out of the state, given that he becomes eligible for release as of Sunday. He said the family would continue to seek payment.

His parole release was approved unanimously earlier in July.

Two of Simpson's children, Justin and Sydney, also live in Florida.

All three Ball brothers played on the 2015-16 Chino Hills team that went 35-0 and won a mythical national championship. He just needs to focus". "It seems like anybody who's training over here, that coach don't want him in the team".

In an interview with the Tampa Bay Times, Malcolm Lavergne called Bondi "possibly the stupidest person on the planet", just days after her office released a letter urging the Florida Department of Corrections to deny Simpson a transfer to serve parole in Florida. However, the Florida state attorney general, Pam Bondi, told the Florida Department of Corrections that he is not welcome there.

Moreover, if Simpson seeks to leave Nevada, the Division of Parole and Probation will require him a written permission. Bondi told "Fox and Friends" that she might have no legal way to keep Simpson out.

Simpson is out after spending nine years behind bars in a 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping case.

It's all a new chapter for the one-time pop culture phenomenon whose fame was once again on display when the major TV networks carried his parole hearing live.

"She's the attorney general, she has nothing to do with it", Lavergne said.

He told officials that leading a group of men into a 2007 armed confrontation was an error in judgment he would not repeat.

Over 20 years ago, Simpson went on trial for the 1994 killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. Along with a handful of accomplices, the former star broke into the room of a couple of sports memorabilia dealers.

He was found not guilty in 1995 following the sensational, 13-month trial in Los Angeles, which was televised live daily and transfixed much of the country.
