OJ Simpson Moving to Las Vegas After Florida A.G. Said He’s Not Welcome

Now that O.J. Simpson has been freed from prison he will be going about the task of putting his life back together, but he will not have free rein to do so just yet. While good behavior may cut the time significantly, Simpson is subject to five years of supervised release, and it has already been established that he must remain in Nevada for the foreseeable future. But all indicators point to The Juice being Florida bound in due time, which is a prospect that the state’s attorney general is not happy about.

“I’ve handled parole hearings my entire time as a prosecutor and … I have never seen such lack of remorse in my entire career,” AG Pam Bondi said during an interview on Fox and Friends early Sunday, October 1. “Other than his complete lack of remorse, he wants to come to Florida and golf all over our state, and I don’t want that to happen.”

While Simpson thus far has only been granted approval to reside outside of Las Vegas, he will have the opportunity to request relocation at some point down the line. at which point it is believed that he will hook up with good friend and Naples, FL resident Tom Scotto, who picked Simpson up from Lovelock Correctional Center in the wee hours of Sunday morning. A move to the sunshine state would not only deliver him back to a community of friends he has there but will reconnect him with his children. Bondi admits that if a judge indeed were to permit Simpson to head to Florida, they’d have to receive him. But she ensures that there will be conditions placed upon him, that make for a less than pleasant survival for him.

“You’re not gonna report into parole officers by mail, O.J. Simpson,” Bondi told the New York Post. “You’re gonna have travel restrictions, you’re gonna get alcohol tested, you’re not gonna be able to drink in our state.”

OJ Simpson Released from Prison

Orenthal James “OJ” Simpson has officially been released from Lovelock Correctional Center in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017, at 12:08 AM after serving 9 years in prison. Rumors started to circulate about OJ getting released on Monday, but the prison was concerned with a media circus and therefore chose to quietly release OJ early this morning. OJ will be on supervised parole for the next 5 years.

On October 3, 2008, Simpson was found guilty of kidnapping and armed robbery for entering a Las Vegas hotel room with a group of men and stealing sports memorabilia at gunpoint. OJ admitted to taking the items but claimed that they were stolen from him by a known associate. OJ’s co-defendants all took plea deals and he was sentenced to 33 years with a possibility of parole after 9 years.

Many believed that OJ’s harsh sentence was payback for being found not guilty of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in the 1995 “Trial of the Century”. According to polls, 83% of white Americans and 57% of black Americans felt that Simpson was actually guilty. Simpson went on to lose the wrongful death civil case with Ron Goldman’s family, where the family was awarded $33.5 million. The family was unable to recover hardly any of that amount from OJ. The items in question that resulted in his recent jail sentence were allegedly hidden from Goldman’s family to avoid the civil suit.

Since government aid to Puerto Rico is moving at a snail’s pace, it looks like it’s up to the community to lend a helping hand. The U.S. commonwealth is reeling in the wake of Hurricane Maria. For a week, residents there have been struggling without electricity, food, gas, and water.

Fat Joe is teaming up with JAY-Z, Tidal, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. to send supplies to Puerto Rico. In a video posted on social media, the Puerto Rican rapper says he will be collecting supplies like batteries, women’s products, water, toothpaste, soap and canned food.

This will be taking place on Saturday, September 30th at the Jacob Javits Center in midtown, Manhattan. JAY-Z is supplying the airplane that the Bronx native will fly into Puerto Rico. There, he will meet Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee to distribute the items. Fat Joe’s goal is to collect 200,000 lbs. of goods.

There are several locations throughout the state and New York City that will also be accepting donations on Saturday. They include the Shirley A. Chisholm State Office Building in Brooklyn and the Jamaica Street Armory in Queens. There are also two locations in the Bronx accepting goods, Roberto Clemente State Park and the Department of Motor Vehicles on Fordham Road.

For those who cannot get to those locations but would like to make a monetary donation, you can do so at tidal.com/PuertoRico.

Chance The Rapper Sued For Copyright Infringement

However, it looks as if his past may be giving him some trouble, as he is being sued for copyright infringement. The lawsuit stems from a jazz musician named Abdul Wali Muhammad who says the rapper used a “significant portion” of one of his songs on his track “Windows.” According to the document filed by the musician and his lawyer, “blatant and willful infringement” of Muhammad’s song “Bridge Through Time” took place.

For those unaware, “Windows” was a song featured on Chance The Rapper’s 2012 mixtape 10 Days. Because of that, Muhammad has issued a request to a federal judge asking the rapper to refrain from “copying, distributing, performing, selling or offering to sell” the track “Windows.”

Muhammad’s lawyer went on to say “Chance failed and refused to take any action to halt access to the infringing song,” even though Muhammad directly reached out to the artist about the pending issue. No one from Chance’s team has commented on the situation.
