OJ Simpson has reportedly been freed on parole after nine years in a US prison for armed robbery.
Simpson, 70, reportedly walked free from prison on Sunday, the Associated Press reports, quoting a Nevada state prisons spokeswoman.
Simpson's release from prison is the result of a Nevada parole board decision in July after he spent almost a decade behind bars for his part in a Las Vegas robbery.
The parole hearing did not take into account his notorious 1990s trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and a friend, Ron Goldman, according to Reuters.
