Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi sent a letter Friday asking O.J. Simpson not relocate to Florida once he is released from prison in Nevada in the coming weeks.

Bondi asked the Department of Corrections to “immediately notify all appropriate authorities” in Nevada that Florida objects to having him move back to the state. Simpson previously lived in the Miami-area.

In her letter, Bondi quotes Simpson saying he “could easily stay in Nevada but I don’t think you guys want me here.”

“In light Mr. Simpson’s history in California, Nevada and Florida, the same goes for the People of Florida,” she wrote.

In 2008, Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping after a confrontation with sports memorabilia collectors in a Las Vegas hotel room. Simpson, 70, was granted parole in July after serving nearly nine years in prison. He is expected to be released from prison in October.
