OJ Simpson freed from prison in Northern Nevada

O.J.is expected to be released from a Nevada prison as early as Monday.

Scotto said in brief text messages early Sunday to The Associated Press that he was there but couldn't talk.

While Bondi says the state has the legal right to refuse his request, she listed several restrictions she believes should be placed on Simpson, if he is allowed to live in the state.

Simpson was granted parole on five counts in a 2013 hearing by the same Nevada parole board that he faced on Thursday.

Simpson's attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, said he wouldn't confirm his client's location.

- July 20, 2017: A four-member parole board unanimously grants Simpson parole, effective October 1.

"While we respect the Nevada Parole Board's decision to release Simpson, it's still hard for us knowing he will be a free man again", the Goldmans said in a statement, according to ABC News.

- July 2007: A federal bankruptcy judge awards the rights to a book by Simpson, in which he discusses how he could have committed the killings, to Goldman's family as partial payment of the judgment.

Before his release, 70-year-old Simpson expressed a desire to return to Florida, but implied that the state's attorney general did not want him there.

Simpson, 70, served nearly nine years behind bars for a 2007 armed robbery, in which he and several accomplices broke into a Las Vegas hotel room to steal pieces of memorabilia from two men. She had first met Simpson when she was 18 and he was married to his first wife.

"I don't have any information on where he's going", Keast told AP by phone.

He was sentenced to up to 33 years at the prison, which is located about 90 miles east of Reno.

"It was incident free, nobody followed, it was exactly what we'd hoped we could do for public safety", Keast told reporters.

After spending nine years in prison for a Las Vegas robbery, the former National Football League star walked out of the Lovelock Correctional Institute at 12:08 a.m. local time on Sunday, according to the Nevada Department of Corrections. "He has to go through the Nevada Department of Corrections, the Nevada Department of Parole and Probation and at some point very soon he will eventually have his release plans and he will be able to get out". The odd release hour was due to an effort to avoid media attention.
