(Carson City, NV) — One state lawmaker says O.J. Simpson’s incarceration is an example of Nevada’s unnecessary prison costs.

Senator Tick Segerblom says taxpayers are spending thousands of dollars a year to keep the 66-year-old former football star behind bars.

Segerblom says judges should consider alternative sentences for non-violent suspects.

Simpson remains held in a Nevada prison for the 2007 robbery of two sports collectors in Las Vegas.
