A “cruise ship with barbed wire” is how a retired correctional officer describes the prison where O.J. Simpson has been for almost nine years.
Simpson is set to appear before the Nevada Board of Parole Thursday and could be released from prison as soon as Oct. 1. But Jeffrey Felix, a retired correctional officer, said Simpson’s life is more than tolerable at Lovelock Correctional Center.
“Inmates in Nevada have a saying, ‘Lovelock is easy time,’ ” Felix told USA TODAY Sports. “I mean, that prison is not like a normal prison. The food at Lovelock is very good. That prison is super duper clean.
The amenities at the medium-security prison include a gym, softball field, volleyball courts and ping pong, according to Felix, who said inmates also have access to movies and cable TV.
Simpson is expected to be released July 20.
