O.J. Simpson Freed After Serving 9 Years in Prison

Oct 01, 2017

 

Faizel Patel, Radio Islam News – 01-10-2017

Nevada prison officials in the US have confirmed that former football player O.J. Simpson has officially been released on parole.

The 70-year-old has become a free man again on Sunday after serving nine years for a botched hotel-room heist in Las Vegas that brought the conviction and prison time he avoided in the killings of his wife and her friend after his 1995 acquittal.

Nevada state prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast told The Associated Press that Simpson was released from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada.

Keast says she did not know who met Simpson upon his release and didn’t know where Simpson was immediately headed in his first hours of freedom.

“I don’t have any information on where he’s going.”

The 70-year-old Simpson gains his freedom after being granted parole earlier this year.

Unlike the last time he went free 22 years ago, he will face restrictions — five years of parole supervision — and he’s unlikely to escape public scrutiny as the man who morphed from charismatic football hero, movie star and TV personality into suspected killer and convicted armed robber.
