NBC News is reporting O.J. Simpson could be released from jail as early as Monday, and I’m waiting for Hertz to pull the ultimate #TBT by announcing today it will provide official prison transportation. Kidding, if anything, Kris Jenner will have Khloe Kardashian greet him at the gates for a season 10 mid-season cliffhanger!
Nevada officials are finalizing the deets to release O.J. after he spent nine years in the slammer for his 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping conviction. O.J. had been sentenced to up to 33 years behind bars, but he got parole in July, making the Monday release possible. Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast said, “We’ve been trying to keep things as normal as possible.” One of those ways is by providing the public with video of the release, which, last time I checked, doesn’t happen when a normal ol’ crook gets sprung from the pokey!
O.J.’s friend Tom Scotto has offered to house the soon-to-be ex-con in his home in Naples, which is a real shame. First, Hurricane Irma rolls through, and soon Hurricane O.J. could close out the season.
An attorney for the Goldman family (Ronald Goldman was the waiter also murdered the same night as Nicole Brown Simpson) said the family will continue to seek payment on the $33.5 million a judge ordered O.J. to pay for the killing in a civil suit two years after he was found not guilty in the criminal suit. The number has ballooned to $65M in interest, which is a real shame since I’m sure Faye Resnick was really hoping to add O.J. to her interior design client list once he springs free.
