Whether an O.J. Simpson fan or not, think he was over-charged and unfairly sentenced in his robbery and kidnapping conviction or not, I must say this headline raised my eyebrows.
Florida AG Pam Bondi: O.J. Simpson not welcome in the Sunshine State
I tried to think of any other time when a state’s highest justice official told a prison parolee to stay out of their state. (OK, so Bondi didn’t tell him to stay out, but in my book “not welcome” equals “don’t come.”
I know that orders to stay out of a state can be included in court orders as a condition of parole, but for a state’s attorney general to publicly disinvite someone after he’s released from prison on parole?
Do any of you know of a similar case?
As you probably have guessed, I’m something of a crime history buff. I can’t think offhand of a state AG telling a parolee to “stay out.”
I’ve heard of Pam Bondi and my impression was she is a publicity hound. And this gets her some headlines.
Before election as Florida AG, she sometimes appeared on the talking head crime shows.
