OJ Simpson freed from jail

O.J. Simpson was startled Sunday as a photographer approached him at a Nevada gas station not long after his release from prison. Simpson could be freed as early as Sunday from prison in Nevada, where he has been held since 2008 for a botched robbery, but the time and place of his release remain secret, his plans largely unknown. Simpson's potential relocation to Florida following his impending release from prison in Nevada.

Famous football player, O.J. Simpson, was released from the Love Lock Correctional on Sunday after becoming eligible for parole.

"I can tell from his voice on the phone last night that he's looking forward to freedom and hugging his family on the outside", LaVergne said.

Simpson, who served his time at Lovelock, was granted parole at a hearing in July.

Simpson has said he wanted to move back to Florida, where he lived before his armed robbery conviction in Las Vegas in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers. It was 5:30 in the morning, just hours after he had been released.

Nevada Dept. of Corrections video shows O.J. Simpson leaving Lovelock Correctional Center at 12:08 am local time.

Though Florida's attorney general has urged the department to object to Simpson's return, the department previously has said it would be required to accept a transfer if the request met certain criteria. His release means he will still be under supervision for five years. "I don't want that to happen". "F- her", Lavergne said of Bondi in an interview with the newspaper.

Bondi quoted Simpson as saying, "I could easily stay in Nevada but I don't think you guys want me here", adding that "the same goes for the People of Florida". However, he must get permission from the parole board before he can move to the state. It could be less if he maintains good behavior.

Simpson's presence could also embarrass his adult children living there, Bondi said.

His trial was called "the Trial of the Century" and garnered worldwide attention after his arrest, which began with a slow-speed pursuit by police while a friend drove him in a white Ford Bronco. On Oct. 3, 1995, at the end of a televised trial that captivated the nation, Simpson was acquitted of all criminal charges.
