    Well here's good story, except for the part where he could get out in 2017:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...le-bars-female-fans-stopped-sending-cash.html

    OJ Simpson, who is currently incarcerated in the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, is complaining that he no longer receives money from female fans, according to reports.

    The 68-year-old, who is serving up to 33 years for kidnapping and armed robbery, has had a 'meltdown' over his finances, sources behind bars have said.

    'In the first few years, O.J. was in prison, there was a steady stream of letters and money from women,' the source told Radar Online.

    'His family is responsible for replenishing the commissary account, but it’s not a huge priority for his kids.'

    'Miserable': Former gridiron great OJ Simpson, who is serving up to 33 years for kidnapping and armed robbery, has had a 'meltdown' over his finances, sources inside Lovelock Correctional Center say

    Fallen idol: OJ S is currently serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in state prison as a result of his 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping, but he could be out in two years

    The source continued: 'And O.J. just isn’t getting the letters and money from women anymore.

    'He needs that money because he also uses it to keep other inmates happy and off his back.'

    The news comes as Simpson's health continues to deteriorate behind bars.

    Earlier this year the Daily Mail revealed that the former Buffalo Bills star cannot walk without a cane and fears he will be in a wheelchair when he finally leaves prison.


    He is furious with prison officials because he says they refuse to allow him to leave the prison to get the surgery he can only get on the outside.

    OJ just isn't getting the letters and money from women anymore
    Simpson was seen struggling to walk around the prison with a cane and telling fellow inmates he was angry because he is not getting the specialized medical care he needs.

    He was found guilty in 2008 of criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery and using a deadly weapon and was sentenced to thirty-three years in prison with the possibility of parole after nine years, in 2017.

    'I can only get mediocre health care in here,' Simpson told a fellow inmate, 'and it really pisses me off because I have the money to go to any specialist in the world to get knee surgery but they won't let me leave to get help.

    'They don't give a damn that I am going to end up crippled and can't walk for the rest of my life'

    A prison insider told Daily Mail Online, Simpson doesn't walk around the prison a lot like he used to but when he has to get his meals in the commissary he walks with a new silver cane, grimacing in pain.

    Painful: OJ's knee injuries are a result from his 11-year career as a running back in the NFL. He doesn't walk around the prison a lot like he used to but when he has to walk to get his meals in the commissary he walks with a new silver cane while grimacing in pain

    On display: OJ's knee injuries had such an impact on his health, attorney Johnnie Cochran, used his disability in his trial for the murder of wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. to convince the jury that he was not physically capable of the killings. At one point Cochran instructed OJ to stand and raise his suit pant leg to show the jury his multiple scars on his left knee to prove he was severely handicapped

    Simpson stops frequently to lean up against the wall to rest if there is not a bench nearby to sit and complains the pain is getting worse every day. Simpson is given pain medication but it only helps him sleep, it doesn't make the pain go away during the day.

    And his girth doesn't help.

    Says the prison insider, 'OJ started gaining weight because he was eating pork-n-beans, breads and a lot of sweets, like cookies and ice cream but now that he can't get any exercise he has ballooned up to almost 340 pounds.

    'When there was nice weather OJ used to walk around the track on the prison yard for an hour at a time but now the pain in his knee is so severe he can barely walk ten steps without moaning in pain. OJ's weight is definitely a factor and putting more stress on his knees but he also has advanced arthritis.'

    Simpson's knee injuries are a result from his 11-year career as a running back in the NFL and although he has gone through two surgeries on his left knee in the late 1970's he is still in extreme pain.

    These injuries had such an impact on his health Simpson's attorney, Johnnie Cochran, Jr., used his disability in his murder trial 20 years ago to convince the jury his knee was so weak that he was not physically capable of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

    At one point Johnnie instructed Simpson to stand and raise his suit pant leg to show the jury his multiple scars on his left knee to prove he was severely handicapped.

    OJ may be getting released from prison in 2017 on parole and he's telling the other inmates it looks like he's going to be leaving there in a wheelchair.

    Previous
    'Most of the time if a patient gets a recommendation from a doctor to have surgery but it is not life-threatening, the prison will deny that request,' the insider added.

    'OJ said they just gave him a pill and told him to take it easy.

    'He has talked to his attorneys about going to court so he can get some outside medical help but by the time the courts decide he may be already on parole.

    'OJ is in bad shape and it's only going to get worse. The pain is excruciating and his knee is so deformed that he cant even straighten his left leg anymore.

    'OJ is so worried about being seen in a wheelchair that he said he is not going to tell anyone, not even his family, when he's leaving Lovelock.

    'OJ said when he gets parole he will leave in the middle of the night so he can disappear and there will not be any pictures of an old man a wheelchair on the cover of every newspaper across this country with the caption, 'The Juice - Old and Broken!'

    He was, then in 2012 he passed the Bar Exam in Maine but the Bar Examiners denied his application for a license. He's been fighting them in court even since, fucking crazy way to spend your time at age 82.

    Love how OJ says he has the money for surgery, but can't pay back the victims family.

    That's fascinating. He should just go play golf or something before he can't walk anymore himself.
