Florida says it may oversee Simpson parole

(AP) -

Florida's attorney general says her state may have to oversee O.J. Simpson's parole if his prison record in Nevada is clean. Simpson has said he wants to move back to Florida.

Though she doesn't control the Corrections Department, Attorney General Pam Bondi on Friday urged the department to reject any request to transfer Simpson's parole, citing factors including his history of violence and destructive behavior.

Bondi acknowledged Sunday that Florida may have no choice but to accept Simpson.

She says authorities would carefully vet the request and his prison records.

Corrections officials would have 45 days, though Bondi said a decision likely would come much sooner.

Bondi says potential sticking points include whether Simpson completed required alcohol counseling.

Bondi says the Nevada prison system had told Florida officials Simpson would be released no sooner than Monday.

She says Nevada officials as of Sunday afternoon they had not yet made any request for a parole transfer.
