O. J. plans to live in Florida, at­tor­ney says

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation -

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.
