O. J. plans to live in Florida, attorney says
LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson will live in Florida after he is released on parole from a Nevada prison where he has been held for the past nine years for a robbery conviction, his lawyer said Friday.
Attorney Malcolm LaVergne didn’t specify where the former sports and movie star would live, although Tom Scotto, a close friend who lives in Naples, has offered his home. Scotto didn’t respond to messages seeking comment.
Simpson is eligible for release Sunday.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said Floridians don’t want Simpson in their state, but the Florida Department of Corrections has said in the past that they must accept the transfer if Nevada’s request meets the established criteria.
