OJ Simpson freed after nine years in Nevada jail



The former American football star and actor OJ Simpson has been released on parole after nine years in a Nevada jail.

 
He had been serving time for armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and 10 other charges over a 2007 confrontation at a Las Vegas hotel.


Simpson was approved for early parole release at a board hearing in July.


In a Facebook post, Nevada Department of Corrections released an image and video of Simpson signing documents and leaving Lovelock Correctional Centre early on Sunday.
They confirmed the 70-year-old had been released from the facility at 00:08 (07:08 GMT).
He will face restrictions - including up to five years of parole supervision.
