O.J. Simpson is now a 'completely free man' after his parole ended a little earlier than expected.

The convicted armed robber was originally supposed to be set free from parole on February 9 next year.

However, he was awarded good behaviour credits and was released from his conditions earlier this month.

A spokesperson for the Nevada State Police confirmed he was discharged from his rules and the former NFL star's lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, explained to the Associated Press: "Mr. Simpson is a completely free man now."

Simpson was placed on parole on 1 October 2017 after being released from prison.

He served nearly nine years behind bars for 12 counts of criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery, and using a deadly weapon in 2007.

Juice lead a group of men into a Las Vegas hotel room, some of whom were armed, and they nicked memorabilia from people who Simpson believed had stolen from him.

O.J. was originally sentenced to 33 years in jail for his charges, however he was let out in 2017.

When Simpson faced the parole board four years ago, he maintained that he didn't intend to steal but did 'wish this would have never happened'.

He has been living in Nevada since being released from prison and TMZ said questions are now being raised about whether he will go and live somewhere else.


The one place on the planet he won't be going is Los Angeles.

Juice said he won't visit LA due to a fear of running into the real killer of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.

O.J. told The Athletic: "I have trouble with LA. People may think this is self-serving, but I might be sitting next to whoever did it. I really don't know who did this."

He is of course referring to the infamous murder of his former wife and her friend after the pair were killed in 1994.

They were both found dead at Nicole's home in Los Angeles and Simpson was arrested and charged with their murders.

However, he was eventually acquitted by a jury following the most-viewed judicial proceeding in American TV history.

Despite being found not guilty, in a civil lawsuit in 1997 Simpson was found liable for the 'wrongful deaths' of Goldman and Brown and ordered to pay Goldman's family $33.5 million (£26m) in damages.
