O.J. Simpson freed from prison

Just two months after being granted parole, former football legend O.J. Simpson was officially freed from a Nevada prison on Sunday (Oct. 9).

The 70-year-old is released after serving nine years for a botched hotel room heist in Las Vegas, which many believed was deserved after he avoided prison in the killings of his ex-wife after his 1995 acquittal in the "trial of the century" in Los Angeles.

Simpson was released at 12:08 a.m. PT from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada.

The prison released video on social media of Simpson being freed, as he walked out of the facility in a ball cap, denim jacket, jeans and white tennis shoes.

Its unclear what O.J.'s plans are, but he previously said he wanted to move back to Florida, where he lived before his armed robbery conviction in Las Vegas, which took place during a September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers.

Furthermore, he apparently plans to get an iPhone and get familiar with technology, which wasn't as prevelant when he was sent to prison in 2008, his attorney said.

Upon his release, Simpson will have to serve five years of parole supervision.
