Within days, the world will watch as OJ Simpson once again becomes a free man. He was granted parole during this July hearing.

Parole Board: "I do vote to grant parole"

OJ: "Thank you"

Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in Nevada, but after 9 years, a state parole board decided he spent enough time behind bars.

Now, two months later, the 70-year-old former football star known as "The Juice", hopes to live in Florida, but Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi wants others to know Simpson is not welcome there.

"He's paid his debt, whether he goes to Florida, Las Vegas or Detroit," said Stephanie Boyce.

In a letter, Bondi said: "His wanton disregard for the lives of others, and of his scofflaw attitude with respect to the heinous acts for which he has been found civilly liable." This is part of why he should be denied a move to Florida.

Bondi asked the Florida Department of Corrections to tell Nevada that they will don't want him in their state. Some people we asked believe he should live where he wants.

"He still owns his home in Florida so I feel he should be able to go back home to Florida," said Shelley Alba.

"I believe he has the right to live where he desires to live," said Gordon Shaffer.

Bondi sites other reasons Florida should deny him a move, which dates back to 1989 when he plead "no contest" to spousal abuse charges. She said if the department of corrections decides denial is not an option she wants, "to ensure that Mr. Simpson is subject to the most stringent and secure conditions of supervision."
