O.J. Simpson’s Parole Officially Ends, Making Him A ‘Completely Free’ Man
O.J. Simpson is a free man…seriously, this time.
Former NFL legend O.J. Simpson is officially a free man after wrapping up parole. This comes about 4 years after his release from prison in October 2017.
O.J., 74, didn’t make any statements on the day his freedom went into full effect (Dec. 1), but his lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, had this to say:
“Mr. Simpson is a completely free man now.”
Since his release, O.J. has resided in Las Vegas, Nevada–the same place he was found guilty on all charges related to a robbery in 2008.
In 2007, O.J. allegedly orchestrated a robbery inside a hotel room at a Las Vegas casino. He–along with a group of men–held the occupants at gunpoint, stealing sports memorabilia. O.J. claimed that he was simply taking the items back after they were stolen from him. The incident led to his conviction the following year. He would serve 9 years in prison.
Prior to the 2008 trial, O.J. was at the center of another infamous trial. He was accused of killing ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her reported friend 25-year-old Ron Goldman, which led to “The Trial of the Century.” Millions watched as O.J. was shockingly found not guilty on all charges.
The ex-Buffalo Bills running back now leads a quiet in a gated community and has become an active Twitter user with nearly 1 million followers. He joined the platform in 2019, typically informing his followers about his day or giving football commentary.
