O.J. Simpson is planning life after prison.
As we reported, the defamed athlete was granted parole on Thursday after spending nearly nine years in jail stemming from his 2007 arrest in a botched armed robbery. He’s expected to be released around October.
In a new interview with Good Morning America, two of The Juice’s pals — Henry Johnson and Tom Scotto — reacted to their friend’s parole hearing, and revealed what the 70-year-old wants to do as a free man.
As you know, O.J. was famously acquitted for the double murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman back in 1995 — years before he was arrested for the Nevada robbery.
Scotto told host David Muir:
“Well, he’s going to go to Florida. There’s several options actually. I heard somebody say he’ll go to Tampa but he’s not going to go to Tampa. But we have several options we’re talking about. We first have to go to Florida, report to the parole board, I’m sure and then from there, we’re going to go visit his sister in California, we’re going to do a road trip. He wants to visit all the people that died while he was in prison and pay his respects. He wants to visit his daughter’s grave. He wants to visit Nicole’s grave and we’re just going to spend time with family out there.”
And Johnson added:
“O.J. Still believes in his innocence as well as he’s got plenty of followers, including me, that believe that he was unjustly found guilty of liability of Ron Goldman’s death and Nicole’s death. It’s a shame. We feel very sad that we’ve lost those two people. As a matter of fact, Americans have lost—we’ve lost compassion for each other as a diverse ethnic group. America’s strength is based on its diversity and we need to come back together and unite this country so it can remain strong.”
