O.J. Simpson Is Reportedly Having A Hard Time Preparing For Prison Release

(TIML NEWS) O.J. Simpson will be released from prison next month after serving nine years for armed robbery. He was granted parole in July during a widely-watched hearing that revisited his appearance at a Las Vegas hotel, alongside another unnamed person who attempted to retrieve Simpson’s memorabilia from two unsuspecting sellers.

October 1 is the tentative date of his release, but according to TMZ, Simpson is reportedly having a hard time parting ways with the Lovelock Correctional Center. The 70-year-old allegedly established close ties with other prisoners and he “loved being in general population.” His lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, described the situation as a “bittersweet” occurrence.

During the parole hearing, Simpson briefly spoke on the encounter that landed him behind bars, stating, “I thought I was glad to get my stuff back, but it just wasn’t worth it. It wasn’t worth it, and I’m sorry.”

TMZ notes that Simpson has been placed in a single cell “for his own safety” as he awaits his release
