NFL Star Criminal O. Jay Simpson became a free man in 2017, receiving parole in July and released in October after nine years in prison for participating in a 2007 armed robbery. However, he remains a cultural outcast, as some people are convinced that he committed the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. (He was acquitted in criminal proceedings but found guilty in subsequent civil proceedings.) Understandably, the former running backback these days (mostly) behaves with restraint.
In June 2021, it was revealed that Simpson, now 73, would keep fighting recent court orders in Nevada that he owes at least $ 60 million in murder sentences.
His attorney Malcolm LaVergne said he intends to ask the Nevada Supreme Court to overturn one judge’s order to pay the father of a murdered man, Fred Goldmanand a ruling by another judge in favor of Paul Dorsey, a Connecticut man with rights to recover the wrongful death of Ron Goldman’s mother, Sharon Rufo…
“I will appeal in both cases,” LaVergn said, “and there will be more motions at the judicial level.”

ABC News… “He wants to eat seafood; he wants to eat steak. He wants to enjoy very simple pleasures that he hasn’t enjoyed in nine years. I spoke to him. He’s going to get the latest iPhone … So he wants to enjoy these very simple pleasures, and he wants do it in Florida. “
After serving his sentence, Simpson was noticed and about in Las Vegas, at the celebration of the birthday of daughter Arnel. At the time, he said that he had just voted for the Heisman trophy (he is eligible to participate as a former winner).
And although as a result of the civil process, he owed millions of dollars – in fact, $ 58 million. Reuters – he can still receive a comfortable pension, Money reports. That’s because he makes up to $ 42,000 a year in Social Security, $ 125,000 to $ 300,000 a year in NFL pension and Screen Actors Guild Supplemental Pensions – and lenders can’t touch on Social Security pensions or benefits.
Of course, Simpson’s low-key lifestyle could change if he subscribes to reality shows, as some industry insiders are expecting. After all, American Crime Story: People Against. O. Jay Simpson was a huge hit for FX, so TV viewers might want to check out the real Juice. But reality TV would be a risk for both producers and networks. “The danger of a train crash show is that you have to watch out for the train because it will hit you,” said one producer.

Since 2021, Simpson has lived on an indoor golf course in Las Vegas and remains on parole.
