TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi today sent a letter to Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie L. Jones regarding O.J. Simpson’s parole. The letter requests that the FDC 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 specter of his residing in comfort in Florida should not be an option. Numerous law enforcement officials in Florida agree with this position. Our state should not become a country club for this convicted criminal.”
