Florida attorney general tells newly paroled Simpson to stay away

The Orange State's top prosecutor is putting the squeeze on OJ Simpson.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said Sunday morning that the newly paroled Simpson is not welcome there.

"I've handled parole hearings my entire time as a prosecutor and ... I have never seen such lack of remorse in my entire career," Bondi told "Fox and Friends," referring to the July hearing that led to Simpson's early release from a Nevada prison for an armed robbery.

"Other than his complete lack of remorse, he wants to come to Florida and golf all over our state, and I don't want that to happen."

The retired NFLer was released on parole early Sunday after a nine-year stint in the slammer on a 33-year sentence for robbing sports-memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2007, and his attorney said Friday there is "no doubt he's going to Florida."

He's subject to five years of supervised release, but that time could be reduced for good behavior. Bondi pledged particularly stringent supervision if O.J. comes to Florida.
