OJ Simpson Is A Free Man

O J Simpson is not welcome in Florida

The former National Football League and movie star was in the midst of serving a 33-year sentence for an attempted armed robbery of sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Early Sunday morning, the Nevada Department of Corrections released O.J. Simpson from the Lovelock Correctional Center.

Bondi also listed Simpson's "disturbing history of arrests and destructive behavior" as her reasoning for rejecting him from the state.

Can an attorney general prevent someone from moving into their state if they have paid their price to society and have legally been released from prison and granted parole?

The former National Football League star was released from prison in Nevada early Sunday morning and, against all odds, tried to avoid speaking with the press.

"He wants to see his family and hug his family on the outside of prison", LaVergne said.

Simpson will remain on parole until September 29, 2022, where he must adhere to the conditions set by the Nevada parole board that include prohibiting him from drinking alcohol in large quantities or socializing with ex-convicts.

O.J. Simpson appears during a break in an evidentiary hearing.

Simpson left prison shortly after midnight and was picked up by an unidentified person, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Corrections said, according to PEOPLE.

A Nevada parole official said Simpson planned to live at a home in the Las Vegas area for the foreseeable future.

He will be supervised by the state division of parole and probation.

Simpson said at his parole hearing he was ready to spend time with his children and friends and could handle public attention.

LaVergne also suggested that his client simply doesn't have the money, saying "As far as I know, (Simpson) will be a retiree".

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

"It's none of your business", said the star when the man asked him about his future plans, "nothing has changed".

Simpson was famously found not guilty in 1995 of the grisly murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and a male friend, Ron Goldman, in a case that transfixed the country and became known as the "Trial of the Century". His lawyers called his stiff 9-to-33-year sentence for armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges unfair.

Simpson was found liable for the killings in a 1997 civil trial.
