OJ Simpson Arrives at Nevada Prison in Lovelock

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada corrections official says O.J. Simpson
has arrived at a northern Nevada prison to serve his 9 to 33 year sentence.

State prisons spokeswoman Suzanne Pardee says the 61-year-old Simpson was moved Friday to Lovelock Correctional Center, about 90
miles northeast of Reno.

Lovelock is one of the newest and smallest prisons in the Nevada state prison system. It opened in 1995 and houses just under 1,500 inmates in two-bed cells.

Pardee says there were no problems with Simpson's transfer from High Desert State Prison, a 3,000-bed facility in Indian Springs near Las Vegas.

Simpson co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart remains at High Desert pending a decision where he'll serve his 7½ to 27 year term.

Both men were found guilty on Oct. 3 of felony kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges stemming a gunpoint confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas.
