O.J. Simpson confesses that 'being a felon ain't all bad' in newly surfaced video
After serving nine long years in prison, O.J. Simpson seems to be living a carefree life now that he has been released. After being spotted by a fan while out and about, the former pro-football Hall of Famer was caught saying "being a felon ain't all bad" on tape.
In a video exclusively shared by TMZ Sports, O.J. spoke with a fan at a Las Vegas restaurant last Monday, saying that being a felon isn't all that bad.
Simpson was found guilty of several charges in 2008, including kidnapping, criminal conspiracy, assault, robbery, and using a deadly weapon. His arrest happened after he tried to take back items from a memorabilia dealer inside a Las Vegas hotel room.
After being granted parole on July 2017, he was ultimately released from prison in October of the same year.
Since his release, O.J. has been a constant figure in Las Vegas, being spotted there several times in the past few months. While he hasn't been stirring up trouble, his presence in the area makes it fondly familiar for those who remember him committing crimes in the same area.
O.J.'s case is known worldwide after numerous productions were made about his story. "American Crime Story: The People V. OJ" was an Emmy Award-winning series, and the documentary "OJ: Made In America" was an Oscar-winning documentary.
In 2017, Caitlyn Jenner spoke up to Daily Mail UK about the disgraced football star, who hired Robert Kardashian as his defense lawyer during his murder trial.
According to Caitlyn, years after the trial, she and Robert were in a car together when Kris' first husband said: "I would've been okay with it if they had gotten him in the first trial.".
While O.J. was found not guilty of all criminal charges during his first trial in 1995 regarding the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and waiter Ron Goldman, he was made "responsible" for the deaths in a subsequent civil trial in 1998.
In her biography, Caitlyn shares that the "implication was obvious that he believed O.J. was guilty." Making sure to let everyone know that she was no fan of Simpson, she also wrote in her book:
"I believe he got away with two savage murders."
