LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson's lawyer says Simpson isn't planning to move from Las Vegas to Florida like he previously told state parole officials.
Attorney Malcolm LaVergne said Thursday the 70-year-old armed robbery convict is playing lots of golf and has not filed paperwork to move to a different state.
Simpson has been spotted in public several times since his release in October from Nevada state prison. He has been living in a friend's five-bedroom home in a gated and guard-patrolled community several miles from the Las Vegas Strip.
Simpson has earned almost eight months of good time credit since his release from prison, bumping up his expected release from parole to Jan. 18, 2022 from the original Sept. 29, 2022.
Attorney General Pam Bondi has denounced Simpson's plan to move to the state, saying in a letter to the Florida Department of Corrections, "The specter of his residing in comfort in Florida should not be an option. Our state should not become a country club for this convicted criminal.”
Florida is in a group of 30 states which regularly transfers prison inmates and parolees between their boarders.
