OJ Simpson will tuck into steak and get a new iPhone when he is released from prison next week, his lawyer has said.
The disgraced American football star is “making arrangements” for his freedom, which is expected a “few days” after Sunday, Malcolm LaVergne told ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday.
That is the earliest eligible date for the 70-year-old to be paroled under a decision reached by a state panel in July.
Simpson, 70, has spent nine years behind bars in Nevada after a 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping case.
LaVergne said ‘The Juice’ wants to see his family and enjoy “the very simple pleasures” of life, including eating seafood and steak and getting the new Apple handset.
And a close friend told The Sun Simpson will leave Lovelock Correctional Center as a “humbled” man.
“OJ’s going to lay back, enjoy life and play some golf”, Bruce Fromong said.
OJ was acquitted of the 1994 killings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
He was later found liable for their deaths in civil court.
Longtime pal Mr Fromong added: “He’s 70 years old now. OJ has the ability to walk out of that room, but he’s lost nine years of his life and he understands that it wasn’t worth it.
“Prison changes people, especially OJ. This wasn’t a hardened criminal.
“This was a guy that did a stupid move. This isn’t a guy that’s going to be a repeat offender.
‘He’s going to reflect on his life as he has on the last nine years. I think he’s much more contrite.
“I think he’s much more humbled. He’s going to want to see his kids, his sister.
“I think we won’t hear very much from OJ Simpson in the news for a while.”
There is debate over whether OJ will move back to Florida as planned after his release.
Mr LaVergne said there is “no doubt” his client will go to the Sunshine State — but Florida’s attorney general Pam Bondi has called for him to be prevented from living there.
She sent a letter to Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie L. Jones on Friday saying that Florida objects to Simpson serving his parole there.
