Nevada’s conditions for O.J. Simpson’s life outside prison
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Now that O.J. Simpson is out of prison on parole, he’ll have to comply with specific rules that Nevada authorities have set. The conditions apply no matter where Simpson ends up living and the state he ends up choosing will set rules that he must follow to avoid the risk of being returned to prison under the authority of an agreement administered by the by the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision.
Simpson could be on parole until Sept. 29, 2022, according to Nevada state prison records.
That five-year period could be reduced if Simpson collects maximum credits for good behavior, pays fees and fines on time and shows “diligence in labor or study,” according to Nevada state law.
The Nevada Board of Parole has established the following conditions for Simpson:
He is prohibited from leaving Nevada and changing his residence without getting permission first from the Nevada Division of Parole and Probation.
He is required to submit a written report every month about his activities to officials on a form supplied by the parole and probation agency.
He cannot associate with convicted felons, people who engage in criminal activity. His parole officer can prohibit him from associating with anyone else.
He cannot possess, have access to or have under his control any kind of weapon unless the weapon is needed for employment and has been approved by the parole and probation division or someone approved by the division.
He cannot use, buy or possess illegal drugs or prescription drugs unless the prescription drugs are prescribed by a licensed medical professional. Use of marijuana is banned even if it is legal to use marijuana recreationally in the state where Simpson is living.
He is allowed to consume alcoholic beverages “but not to excess.” A test result of .08 blood-alcohol percent or higher (the legal limit for driving in Nevada) is proof of drinking to excess.
He is required to submit a blood or breath test for drugs and or alcohol any time the parole and probation division demands it.
