Simpson is officially a free man.

Florida's attorney general, Pam Bondi, has urged her state's Corrections Department to object to Simpson's return. "Our state should not become a country club for this convicted criminal".

The New York Post recently reported that Simpson's children have bought real estate in Florida, and Cook wanted to know if Simpson helped to pay for that real estate.

While Bondi says the state has the legal right to refuse his request, she listed several restrictions she believes should be placed on Simpson, if he is allowed to live in the state. It's not clear where. It was not immediately known who picked Simpson up or where he was heading after being freed.

Brooke Keast - a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Corrections - told CNN that Simpson, 70, was released from prison shortly after midnight Sunday.

O.J. was previously granted parole after a dramatic hearing on July 20 after four members of the Nevada Board of Parole agreed that inmate No. 1027820, O.J., at Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Facility served enough time for the crime.

Brown Simpson and Goldman were found stabbed to death outside Brown Simpson's home in June 1994. Simpson was tried and acquitted for their murders

"I don't have any information on where he's going", said Keast, according to ESPN.

His longtime friend, Tom Scotto, told NBC News last week that Simpson was looking forward to playing golf, seeing old friends and spending time with family.

"You are permitted to consume alcoholic beverages but not in excess", the conditions of parole supervision read.

Simpson received a bad score on his parole risk assessment guideline in the drug/alcohol abuse category, with the document citing him for "frequent abuse, serious disruption of functioning".

He can drink alcohol, but not beyond Nevada's limit for driving and not being arrested for drunk driving. Prior to his recent jail stint, the father-of-five was mostly associated with his trial and acquittal for the murders of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, in 1995. American audiences were captivated by the "trial of the century", a 13-month saga that was also broadcast live.

Simpson pleaded "100% not guilty" and assembled a team of famous local and national lawyers.
