Parolee OJ Simpson is back to the Las Vegas casino where he committed his 2007 felony burglary and kidnapping. Seventy-year-old Simpson was released last month from Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada after serving nine years out of 33 years for felony burglary.
The former NFL star known as The Juice was once acquitted for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and friend Ron Goldman.
Owner of Casinos Gathering Information on OJ Simpson’s Visits
Following his release on a five-year parole, OJ Simpson secured accommodations in suburban Las Vegas. He has been socializing with friends and visiting casinos where excited locals have been taking selfies with him.

The parent casino company stated on media inquiry that they are collecting information about OJ Simpson’s visit to one of its properties.
OJ Simpson’s Visits to Casinos May Be Good or Bad for Business

The terms of his parole only bars him from associated with ex-prisoners, owning weapons, having illicit drugs, and consuming excess alcohol – the legal limit for driving.
