Former American football star and double murder suspect OJ Simpson has been freed on parole after 9 years in prison for an armed robbery in Las Vegas. Simpson, now 70, spent nine years behind bars for a 2007 armed confrontation with two sports memorabilia traders in a Las Vegas hotel room.
He was sentenced to up to 33 years, but won parole in July due to good behavior and other credits earned in custody.
Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of murder charges in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, and her friend Ronald Goldman, 25, in what was arguably the most highly publicized murder trial in recent history.
It is so sad that someone whose life was so good could fall so far from grace and ruin his life.
