OJ Simp­son re­leased from prison

The Guardian Weekly - - World Roundup -

1 OJ Simp­son be­came a free man last Sun­day, af­ter serv­ing nine years for a botched ho­tel room heist that brought the prison time he avoided when ac­quit­ted of the killings of his ex-wife and her friend in the 1995 “trial of the cen­tury”.

Simp­son was re­leased from Love­lock Cor­rec­tional Cen­ter in Ne­vada, state prisons spokes­woman Brooke Keast said. She said she did not know the driver who met Simp­son. Simp­son has said he wants to move back to Florida, where he lived be­fore his armed rob­bery con­vic­tion in Las Ve­gas, over a Septem­ber 2007 con­fronta­tion with two sports mem­o­ra­bilia deal­ers. The state at­tor­ney gen­eral has said she does not want Simp­son to live in the state.
