O.J. Simpson skips media with early release
Laurel J. Sweet (Boston Herald, 02/10/2017)
O.J. Simpson, freed from prison after midnight yesterday in a move that let him dodge a media circus, will be moving to Las Vegas, a state prison official said.
Simpson, 70, was released at 12:08 a.m. yesterday — a day ahead of schedule — from the desolate Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.
A Nevada parole official said last night Simpson plans to live at a home in the Las Vegas area for the foreseeable future. State Parole and Probation Capt. Shawn Arruti said the disgraced football hero and celebrity criminal defendant has one approved residential plan, and it doesn’t currently include a move to Florida or any other state. Arruti said that could change in the future.

“I’ve been in Nowhere USA for the last nine years doing nothing. Nothing has changed in my life. What do you expect?” the former football great groused at a rest stop just outside Las Vegas, according to video obtained by The Post.


Goldman attorney ready for 'round two' of trying to collect from O.J. Simpson

Now that Simpson has been released from a Nevada prison after serving nine years for a robbery and kidnapping conviction, Cook says he's ready to start working again. "The good news for me is he's getting out. The bad news for him is I'm in good health. I'm good to go."
Cook has been representing the survivors of Ron Goldman for more than a decade. He is working to collect on the multimillion-dollar jury verdict they and the Brown family were awarded after a 1996 civil jury found Simpson responsible for the deaths of Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson, the athlete's former wife.

Media Obsession

America's OJ Simpson obsession oppressed me as a child. It still does
Sarah Perry (The Guardian, 01/10/2017)

The year after my mother’s murder was the year of the OJ Simpson trial. My mother, Crystal Perry, was killed one month and one day before Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, almost to the hour.
Nicole had a daughter, too, and a son. That long year, I kept thinking the daughter was 12, like me, but she was eight. I kept thinking she had found her mother’s body, like I had, but a neighbor had, or, more accurately, the neighbor’s little dog.
When I walked through the living room in the house where I’d been sent to live with an aunt, where the television was constantly tuned to Court TV, I kept seeing the bloody tiles in front of Nicole’s door.
