O.J. Simpson a 'completely free man' as parole ends in Nevada

2:44 PM

O.J. Simpson is free.

The former football player and actor was granted good behavior credits and discharged from parole on December 1st after a hearing before the Nevada Board of Parole.

Malcolm LaVergne, Simpson's lawyer in Las Vegas, said that his client is free.

Simpson declined an interview immediately, his attorney said, and LaVergne wouldn't talk about Simpson's future plans, including whether he intends to remain in Nevada.

He told parole officials that he was moving to Florida.

He moved to a gated community in Las Vegas where he plays golf and frequently takes to social media to offer opinions about college and pro sports.

He told The Associated Press that life is fine.

Simpson was sentenced to nine years in prison for leading five men, including two with guns, in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports collectibles dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel.

Simpson wanted to get back some of the items that were taken from him after he was acquitted of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

The parole board granted him three months of good time credits after he was scheduled for discharge.
