OJ Simpson the former American football star has been released from a Nevada prison after serving nine years of his sentence.
He was sentenced to up to 33 years in prison in 2008 on charges of assault – kidnapping and armed burglary after attempting to steal his own sports memorabilia from a hotel room in Las Vegas.
In July a parole board voted unanimously that he should be released early – after hearing Mr Simpson had been a ‘model inmate’ during his time at Lovelock Correctional Centre.
Simpson’s lawyers have previously argued that his 2008 sentence was disproportionate to his crime and was intended to compensate for his 1995 acquittal.
