Bondi: O.J. Simp­son not wel­come in Fla.

Tampa Bay Times - - Local -

Florida At­tor­ney Gen­eral Pam Bondi says O.J. Simp­son is not wel­come in the Sun­shine State. In a let­ter ad­dressed to Florida De­part­ment of Cor­rec­tions Sec­re­tary Julie L. Jones, Bondi asks the DOC to im­me­di­ately no­tify Ne­vada au­thor­i­ties that Florida ob­jects to grant­ing Simp­son per­mis­sion to trans­fer here to serve pa­role for a 2008 con­vic­tion on rob­bery and kid­nap­ping charges. “Our state should not be­come a coun­try club for this con­victed crim­i­nal,” Bondi wrote. Simp­son was sen­tenced to 33 years in prison in the Ne­vada rob­bery case and served nine. He was granted pa­role in July and Ne­vada au­thor­i­ties have said that he could be re­leased as soon as Mon­day. Simp­son said at his pa­role hear­ing that he planned to re­turn to Florida if re­leased. There has been spec­u­la­tion that he would move to St. Pe­ters­burg where his two grown chil­dren, Justin and Syd­ney, now live.
