Singularly Unwelcome?

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 AGĀ Pam Bondi: O.J. Simpson not welcome in the Sunshine State

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/florida-ag-pam-bondi-oj-simpson-not-welcome-in-the-sunshine-state/article/2636177

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?
