O.J Simpson was released from prison after he was paroled, on Sunday, October 1, 2017, after being imprisoned at Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada for 10 years. “I’m not a guy that would ever get into fights on the street,” he stated during his trial, according to abcnews.com.

On September 13, 2007, Simpson led a group of men into Bruce Fromong’s hotel room, so they could steal “back” various sports memorabilia, which was apparently Simpson’s. “[O.J.] wasn’t the one with the gun. He’s the one who probably saved my life, cause he was saying [to someone in his group], ‘Put the gun down.”’ Fromong stated in an interview with vulture.com.

O.J. Simpson stated that neither he nor group had weapons that night. Simpson also denied breaking into Fromong’s room.

On Sunday, October 1, 2017, O.J was released after a parole board made the decision that he could leave the prison. “I’m sorry it happened, I’m sorry to Nevada, I thought I was glad to get my stuff back, but… but, it wasn’t worth it.” Simpson had apologized to the camera that was broadcasting the trial live on abcnews.com, and to the commissioners in the trial room.

Even if the “sports memorabilia” was his, Simpson was charged with breaking and entering, and also for attempting to hurt an innocent person.
