O.J. Simpson Transferred to Safer Area Following Parole Hearing

O.J. Simpson moved to safer location

O.J. Simpson has reportedly been moved to a special housing area in Lovelock Correctional Center.

The decision to transfer him to another part of the facility came after the former NFL star was granted parole by the State of Nevada Parole Board on Thursday.

There was concern about the soon to be released inmate’s well being.

In an attempt to protect him from other inmates who were possibly looking to harm him in order to make a name for themselves.

According to TMZ.com, there’s no specific threat on O.J.’s life but several inmates in the prison have life sentences “and nothing to lose” and may be “opportunists” looking to hurt or kill Simpson before he leaves to raise their own profile.

The prison rep said O.J. did not request the special protection but explained, “It’s in the best interest of O.J. and the prison to make sure that he’s safe and comes out in one piece.”

Simpson is expected to be released on October 1.

Orenthal James Simpson, nicknamed “The Juice”

O.J. JUICED
In 2006, O.J. starred in his own improv, hidden-camera prank TV show, Juiced. Typical of the genre, Simpson would play a prank on everyday people while secretly filming them and at the end of each prank, he would shout, “You’ve been Juiced!” Less typical, each episode opened with topless strippers dancing around Simpson, who is dressed as a pimp. He sings his own rap song, which includes the lyrics “Don’t you know there’s no stopping the Juice / When I’m on the floor I’m like a lion on the loose / Better shoot me with a tranquilizer dart / Don’t be stupid, I’m not a Simpson named Bart.” In one episode, Simpson is at a used car lot in Las Vegas where he attempts to sell his white Bronco (made famous during the chase in Los Angeles prior to his arrest). A bullet hole in the front of the SUV is circled with his autograph, and he pitches it to a prospective buyer by saying that if they “ever get into some trouble and have to get away, it has escape-a-bility.” In another sketch called “B-I-N-G-O.J.”, Simpson pretends to be having an affair with another man’s girlfriend. Later he transforms into an old white man whose dying wish is to call a game of bingo. “Juiced” aired as a one-time special on pay-per-view television and was later released on DVD.
