A.G. Bondi Objects to O.J. Simpson Relocation to Florida

posted by Alan McBride - 

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi would rather O.J. Simpson not have a Florida address once he is released from prison.

Simpson has been in prison in Nevada for nine years, after being convicted on robbery charges.

Friday, Pam Bondi sent a letter to Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie L. Jones regarding O.J. Simpson’s parole. 

The letter requests that the Florida Department of Corrections immediately notify all appropriate authorities of Nevada that Florida objects to granting Simpson permission to relocate to Florida to serve parole.

In the letter, Attorney General Bondi states, "Floridians are well aware of Mr. Simpson's background, his wanton disregard for the lives of others, and of his scofflaw attitude with respect to the heinous acts for which he has been found civilly liable."

The letter continues, "The specter of his residing in comfort in Florida should not be an option. Our state should not become a country club for this convicted criminal."

Ultimately, the Florida Department of Corrections must decide, with the Nevada Department of Corrections, whether Simpson can move to Florida if he chooses, or whether the state is off limits.

Bondi said if the Florida Department of Corrections determines that Simpson has met the criteria to move to the state, and that denial of that request is not an option, she wants plenty of strings attached to Simpson's parole.

Bondi said if Simpson can and does move to Florida, she wants him to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, for starters.

Bondi said Simpson would also have to report to his parole officer in person and not by mail, would be severely restricted in his travels, and would not be allowed to consume alcohol or other drugs. 

To enforce the final measure, Bondi said she wanted him tested on a regular basis.
