Life after prison is ‘fine’ for O.J. Simpson

Almost 25 years to the day of the grisly killings of his ex-wife and her friend, O.J. Simpson is living a relatively quiet life in Las Vegas with a pair of new knees and working on his golf game. He says his life has entered a phase he calls the “no negative zone.”

In an interview over the phone, the 71-year-old Simpson told the Associated Press that neither he nor his children are interested in revisiting what happened on June 12, 1994, the day when his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman were stabbed to death and Simpson was transformed from Hall of Fame football hero to murder suspect.

For a man who once lived for the spotlight, Simpson has generally kept a low profile since his release from prison in October 2017 after serving nine years for a robbery-kidnapping conviction in Las Vegas.

“The town has been good to me,” Simpson said of Vegas. “Everybody I meet seems to apologizing for what happened to me here.”

However the relatives of Simpson’s ex-wife and Goldman are not convinced with his release. They say the parole would help Simpson to live the way he does while their loved ones had their lives cut short so tragically.

According to the condition of his parole, he is allowed to take short trips, including to Florida, where his two younger children, Justin and Sydney, have built careers in real estate.
