OJ Simpson is Out Of Prison

OJ Simpson is Out Of Prison

Simpson, who served 9 years for a kidnapping conviction, wore standard prison issue on his way out … blue jeans, a denim jacket and white tennis shoes.

OJ Simpson tried something new on for size early Sunday morning … freedom.

Simpson signed his exit papers and was then released from the Nevada Correctional Center just after midnight … minutes after he was eligible to be paroled. The release was stealth, because prison officials wanted to avoid a media crush.

As he walked out, he was told by prison staff, “Don’t come back” … it’s a standard issue farewell. The 70-year-old convict replied, “I don’t intend to.”

A driver was waiting to whisk Simpson away. For now he’ll be staying somewhere in Nevada … he wants to live in Florida but the paperwork hasn’t been processed. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is trying to block the move.

 

Simpson spent a lifetime in the limelight — first for his athletic prowess, charm and good looks, then as a murder suspect in the 1994 killing of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.
His murder trial in Los Angeles was dubbed “the trial of the century” and sparked years of debate over race and justice.
Simpson pleaded “100% not guilty” and assembled a team of famous local and national lawyers. He was eventually acquitted in 1995, but many questioned whether he got away with murder.
The victims’ families filed a suit for wrongful death. Two years after his acquittal, he was ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages.
