Early Sunday morning, the Nevada Department of Corrections released O.J. Simpson from the Lovelock Correctional Center.

Specifically, he walked through the prison gates shortly after Midnight, a time prison... Simpson declined to be interviewed, saying he had done nothing since his release but sit in a auto for five hours.

O.J. Simpson is a free man, he has been paroled from prison.

Famous football player, O.J. Simpson, was released from the Love Lock Correctional on Sunday after becoming eligible for parole.

Bondi wrote in the letter that Floridians are "well aware" of Simpson's background, which she said includes his "wanton disregard for the lives of others" and his "scofflaw attitude with respect to the heinous acts for which he has been found civilly liable", citing the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

However, Nevada State Parole and Probation Capt. Shawn Arruti told The Associated Press that corrections officials have an approved residential plan for Simpson. The trial involving OJ Simpson at the time was known around the world. They had advised it would be no earlier than Monday and possibly in Las Vegas.

His legal team said this week that he was just looking forward to the "simple pleasures" of eating steak and buying an iPhone on his release. Simpson wants to move to Florida at some point so that he can be near his family. Keast said she had no information about where he was going.

During the parole hearing, Simpson joked that he was willing to stay in Nevada, but "I'm sure you don't want me here". He was granted parole in July by four members of the Nevada Board of Prisons with an effective date of "on or after October 1".

Florida corrections officials say they had not received a parole transfer request and had not been contacted by their counterparts in Nevada.

Asked where he was headed, he replied: "None of your business". He cannot use illegal drugs and can drink alcohol only if the amount he drinks is below Nevada's blood-alcohol limit for driving.

Simpson is out after spending nine years behind bars in a 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping case. It gives him all the leverage he needs to move across state lines, especially if a relative living in Florida supports him (two of his children are residents of St. Petersburg). He lived in Los Angeles at the time of the murders.
