O.J. Simpson is no longer behind bars. The former NFL star was released from Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Institute overnight. Simpson served nine years in prison after being convicted of charges stemming from a botched robbery in Las Vegas. He was granted parole in July and October 1st was set as his earliest possible release date.
He walked out of the detention center under cover of darkness and without fanfare, a far cry from decades ago when Simpson was at the center of the so-called Trial of the Century. Arrested and charged with the murder of his estranged wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman, O.J. was ultimately acquitted of the crime but the infamy never seemed to stop following him.
It's been reported that his plans are to head to Florida and spend time with his friends and family but the Nevada Department of Corrections would not confirm his destination.
