O.J. SIMPSON RELEASED FROM JAIL

O.J. Simpson was released from jail Wednesday after a Las Vegas judge set bail at $125,000. He then headed to The Palms Hotel & Casino, driven in gray sedan with his lawyer.

While Simpson did not enter a plea in court, he did nod in agreement when asked by Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure Jr. if he understood the terms of bail. Simpson was ordered to surrender his passport to his attorney and have no contact with co-defendants or potential witnesses in the case.

According to Simpson's lawyer, the former football star will return to his Florida home soon. Attorney Yale Galanter said Simpson would plead not guilty to charges of first-degree kidnapping, robbery with use of a deadly weapon, burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon, coercion with use of a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit a crime in connection to the Sept. 13 events at the Palace Station Casino and Hotel.
