O.J. Simpson Freed From Nevada Prison After 9 Years

O.J. Simpson has been freed from Nevada prison after nine years.He was
freed at the early hours of Sunday morning.


Simpson was released after
serving nine years for a
botched 2007 hotel-room
heist in Las Vegas that
brought the conviction and
prison time he avoided in the killings of his wife and her
friend after his 1995
acquittal. Nevada state prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast told the
Associated Press that Simpson was released at 12:08 a.m. PDT from
Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada.


She said she
did not know who met
Simpson upon his release and didn't know where Simpson was immediately headed.

"I don't have any information
on where he's going," said
Keast, adding she had no
indication where he was
immediately Sunday. Keast said, the dead-of-night
release from the prison
located about 90 miles (145
kilometers) east of Reno,
Nevada, was conducted to
avoid media attention.

"We needed to do this to
ensure public safety and to
avoid any possible incident,"
Keast added, speaking by
telephone. The 70-year-old Simpson gains his freedom after being
granted parole earlier this year.

Unlike the last time he
went free 22 years ago, he
will face restrictions -- five years of parole supervision --
and he's unlikely to escape
public scrutiny as the man
who morphed from
charismatic football hero,
movie star and TV personality into suspected killer and
convicted armed robber.
