O.J. Simpson‘s parole has ended early … and, according to his attorney, he’s now “a completely free man.”
A spokesperson for the Nevada State Police confirmed to TMZ Sports that Simpson was, in fact, discharged from parole earlier this month.
According to the spokesperson, Simpson — who had been on parole since Oct. 1, 2017 — was awarded good behavior credits which made him eligible for ending it early.
His parole was initially set to expire on Feb. 9, 2022.
“Mr. Simpson is a completely free man now,” the former NFL star’s attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, told the Associated Press following the news.
Of course, 74-year-old Simpson had been on parole after he served nine years behind bars following his conviction in his armed robbery case in 2008.
You’ll recall, Simpson had been convicted of leading a group of men — including several who were armed — into a Las Vegas hotel room in 2007 to steal memorabilia from people he said had previously stolen from him.
O.J. was originally sentenced to 33 years behind bars for the crime.
Simpson has been living in Las Vegas since his release from jail — golfing often while commenting on NFL games on his Twitter page.
It’s unclear if he has plans to leave Nevada now that his parole has ended.
