He was neither heard from nor seen publicly, except when a television news crew found him in a auto at a gas station on the way to Las Vegas and he declined to be interviewed.

He's subject to five years of supervised release, but that time could be reduced for good behavior. And he was released Sunday despite claims by the Department of Corrections that parolees aren't released on weekends.

O.J. Simpson was released from prison in Nevada early Sunday morning after serving nine years for a 2007 kidnapping and armed robbery in Las Vegas. She added that she had no information on Simpson's intended destination.

Malcolm LaVergne, Simpson's attorney, heaped scorn upon the Goldman family for continuing to seek money from the court issued settlement.

"You're not gonna report in [to parole officers] by mail, O.J. Simpson", she warned.

Dressed in jeans and a jean jacket - the same type of prison denim that he wore during his parole hearing - white sneakers and a hat, Simpson, 70, signed release papers and left the facility in the dark of night on the first day he was eligible for release. Arruti declined for what he said were security and privacy reasons to disclose the exact location of the house.

Tom Scotto, a Simpson friend who lives in Naples, Florida, said by text message that he was with Simpson after his release. He also had a debit card.

Simpson is known for the 1995 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Before his arrest he was filmed live on television being pursued by police on a Californian freeway.

Michael Wright, a spokesman for the Goldmans, said in the statement that the civil judgment awarded to the Goldmans has climbed to over $66 million. "We anticipate that the Nevada Board of Parole will uphold the conditions of Simpson's parole and not provide leniency".

The board had to determine whether he was not a threat to society, and had served his time in prison without incident. It's believed that Simpson plans to spend time in St. Pete, relaxing with his family and even playing golf. "I've done it as well and as respectfully as I think anyone can". Simpson was convicted in 2008 of enlisting some men he barely knew, including two who had guns, to retrieve from two sports collectibles sellers some items that Simpson said were stolen from him a decade earlier.

Simpson is expected to remain in Nevada for the immediate future; Florida and California, where he has lived in the past, did not receive requests for transfer before his release, officials said.

"He lied in that hearing when he said that he's had no violent acts", Bondi said.

"The specter of his residing in comfort in Florida should not be an option".

A parole panel granted him parole by unanimous vote in July. He cannot use illegal drugs and can drink alcohol only if the amount he drinks is below Nevada's blood-alcohol limit for driving.

But of course, the convicted felon couldn't avoid the media forever. The parole official said Simpson doesn't have permission to leave Nevada.
