Simpson served nine years of a possible 33-year sentence at Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada.

As for the response of the Goldman family, Ronnie's sister, Kim, and his father, Ron Senior, explained that while they respect Nevada's decision to release the disgraced football star, it's troubling for them to know he will be a free man walking the streets.

Simpson previously lived in Florida before his 2008 conviction.

Simpson has been behind bars in Nevada for the past nine years after being convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping.

Simpson's attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, said earlier Friday there's "no doubt" Simpson is going to Florida.

Nevada prisons official Brooke Keast said plans for Simpson's release from prison are in motion, but need to be finalized.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi wrote a letter to the Department of Corrections on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, stating that she doesn't want OJ Simpson to live in her state.

It seems like a belated effort by Florida to put the wheels in motion to keep Simpson out of the state, given that he becomes eligible for release as of Sunday. "Maybe not the first day or second, but he is going to go out", Scotto said. The former National Football League star, actor, and TV personality will become one of the 4.6 million people in the United States under "community supervision", bound by multiple restrictions placed on people who had been convicted of a crime-but he will have several significant advantages over most. "I've basically spent a conflict-free life".

A captain with the state Division of Parole and Probation declined to discuss specifics about Simpson's new life.

"There are times due to concern for the safety of the inmate and or the public that arrangements are made to go explain terms and conditions offsite", Arruti told CNN.

Simpson has continually argued he orchestrated the caper to recover family mementos and memorabilia taken from him.

Bondi argues that the state of Florida should deny Simpson's request because of his failure to pay the civil judgments entered against him in relation to the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994; the difficulty his notoriety would pose for local authorities; his past criminal activity and "his manifest lack of contrition for his crimes".

While a large part of her letter opposes Simpson coming to Florida, Bondi also lays out restrictions that she wants should he make the move, including an electronic monitoring bracelet and regular drug and alcohol tests.
