O.J Simpson could be released from prison on Monday

Former American footballer, O.J. Simpson could be released on October 1st in Las Vegas under a plan being finalized by Nevada officials.

State Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast said: “process culminating in freedom for the former football player, actor and TV pitchman is in motion, but must be approved and documents must be signed”.

Meanwhile, the 70-year-old remains at Lovelock Correctional Center – the medium security prison in Nevada where he has been serving his sentence in northern Nevada awaiting transfer to High Desert State Prison outside Las Vegas, where he would be freed, Keast said.

Simpson’s release is expected after nine years behind bars for his 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping convictions following a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.

He was sentenced to up to 33 years, but won parole in July due to good behavior and other credits earned in custody.
