Simp­son freed: O.J. Simp­son has been freed on pa­role af­ter serv­ing nine years of a 33-year term for armed rob­bery. Simp­son, 70, was jailed in 2008 for barg­ing into a ho­tel room in Las Ve­gas, and try­ing to re­trieve (at gun­point) some sports mem­o­ra­bilia that he in­sisted had been stolen from him. He was re­leased on Sun­day from a prison in Love­lock, Ne­vada, and was this week re­ported to be ask­ing for $5m for his first me­dia in­ter­view. At his pa­role hear­ing, Simp­son (pic­tured) told the panel that he’d led a “con­flict-free life” – a claim that sur­prised the many Amer­i­cans who be­lieve that he was wrongly ac­quit­ted for the mur­der of his ex-wife Ni­cole Brown and her friend, Ron­ald Gold­man, in 1994.
