OJ Simpson, the movie star-turned professional footballer whose double homicide trial has ruled and divided the United States, is a free man after his probation ends, police said Tuesday.

Today’s 74- -year-old Simpson was released from Nevada Jail in 2017, where he served nine years for armed robbery in a sports memorabilia case. He was due to end parole in February. « The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners held an early release hearing for Mr. Simpson, » said Nevada Police Department spokesman Kim Yoko Smith. A parole decision was ratified on December 31st, 2021. The board granted credits equal to the remaining time of the sentence to reduce the sentence to the time served. « 

Simpsons public life on the soap opera began as outstanding running back in college football for winning the coveted Heisman Trophy for the nation’s best player before embarking on a stellar career in the NFL.

Then in 1994, millions of Americans saw a wall-to-wall Televised coverage of Simpson driving a white Bronco, being driven by a friend and leading a police convoy down the Southern California highways, when he was faced with the alleged double homicide of his E. x-wife fled and her male boyfriend.

Simpson was acquitted by a jury in Los Angeles in 1995 on a case disdained by many as the media circus known as the « Trial of the Century, » with a cast of larger than life Attorneys and a drama about whether or not a glove found at the scene would fit him.

The verdict was met with disbelief by many Americans, with racial opinions about the black athlete’s guilt.

The case was cast into the Emmy-winning FX television series « The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, » which aired in 2016.

Simpson was found liable for the deaths in a 1997 civil lawsuit and was ordered to pay 33, $ 5 million in damages to the family of Ron Goldman – who was stabbed to death along with Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.

Simpson protests his innocence and has always denied that he was tried to escape during the famous chase despite ignoring a deadline from the police to surrender himself. that I didn’t run ”, but instead visit Nicole’s grave.

A duffel bag with Simpsons passport and cash – as well as a weapon – found in the car by the police led many to question this, but was never approved by the prosecution presented as evidence.

He later wrote a book called « If I Did It, » which offered a hypothetical description of the murders.
