OJ Simpson released on parole from Nevada jail after serving 9 years

OJ Simpson released on parole from Nevada jail after serving 9 years

Keast says the dead-of-night release from the prison about 90 miles (145 kilometers) east of Reno, Nevada, was conducted to avoid media attention.

According to Cook, as hard as collection has been, he's ready for "Round 2" if Simpson earns anything out of prison.

He could be seen responding "OK" as he left through an open door, wearing a baseball cap, denim jacket, jeans and white tennis shoes. Before his release, Simpson met with his parole officer - he will face restrictions of up to five years of parole supervision.

State Department of Corrections public inmate records provided no information about Simpson's custody status or location, which prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast said usually indicates that an inmate is being moved in custody.

"Our biggest concern was our safety and the public's safety and not wanting anybody, paparazzi, to follow him".

O.J. Simpson signs documents just before leaving Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Texas, before being released early Sunday morning under the cover of darkness to avoid publcity, a prison spokesperson said.

Former American football star and double murder suspect OJ Simpson has been freed on parole after nine years in prison for an armed robbery in Las Vegas.

Simpson's name has made headlines this year after the premier of two prominent television programs focused on his 1995 trial.

The 70-year-old will "focus on kids, friends, his family and golf" following his release, a longtime friend of "the Juice" told CNN.

Other than having property in Florida, Simpson would like to move to Florida so that he would be exempt from having to shell out his National Football League pension money to the the Goldberg family stemming from the wrongful death lawsuit dating back to his double murder trial from the 1990's.

Keast said Simpson was "upbeat, personable and seemed happy to get on with his life".

That's the word from Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who's trying to squeeze O.J. right out of the Sunshine State.

Tom Scotto, a Simpson friend who lives in Florida, told AP by text message that he was with Simpson after his release.

O.J. was granted parole at a hearing back in July.
