We hear that O.J. Simpson is a much happier guy these days.
Well, as happy as a guy can be when you’re in prison for felony kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges that could spell 33 years behind bars.
Still, according to Page Six, Simpson, 67, is much more content since he was transferred to the Lovelock Correction Center near Reno last month.
He reportedly benefits from such amenities as a television in his cell, although he lamented the lack of HBO, and is allowed to play checkers and cards with his fellow convict roomies.
“If I have to be in prison,” Page Six quoted him as saying, “this is the place to be.”
That’s a far cry from his days at the Clark County jail in Vegas, where he reluctantly shed 25 pounds as a direct result of the mystery meat on the menu.
“It looked like a jackalope,” he reportedly griped, referring to the fictitious creature that’s a cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope.
But at his new facility — one of the newest and smallest prisons in the Nevada state prison system – he gives the chow a whopping two thumbs up.
Aww. Looks like The Juice loves being locked up at Lovelock.
Too bad for his co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart , who remains at High Desert pending a decision where he'll serve his 7 1/2 to 27 year term.
Both men were found guilty on Oct. 3 of felony kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges stemming a gunpoint confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas.
