Statement on Offender O.J. Simpson

"We are aware of his potential relocation to Florida. Pursuant to the Interstate Commission on Adult Offender Supervision, if Nevada’s request meets all criteria, Florida must accept the transfer."

“As is the case with any offender who transfers under this routine procedure, he will be assigned a Florida probation officer and will be supervised in accordance with the conditions of his parole.”

Michelle Glady
Director of Communications
Florida Department of Corrections

Questions regarding Mr. Simpson’s parole hearing, parole hearing records, incarceration hearing and disciplinary reports should be addressed by the Nevada Parole Board (PIO David Smith at 775-684-2685 or dmsmith@parole.nv.gov)


Background on National Interstate Compact Procedure

The transfer of an individual on community based supervision, probation or parole, between states is governed by the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision under an Interstate Compact between all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Isles.

The sending state must validate a transfer plan and agree that they will allow the individual to request transfer out of the sending state. If this determination is made, a Transfer Request is submitted to the receiving state. The receiving state then has 45 days to complete an investigation of the submitted plan and determine acceptance or not.

If the transfer is submitted in accordance with the mandatory acceptance criteria (such as the offender being a resident of the receiving state or the offender’s family is residing in the receiving state), the individual supervision plan is automatically considered valid under the Interstate Compact and the receiving state must accept the individual for supervision.
