OJ Simpson tranferred from Vegas to Nevada prison

A state corrections official says O.J. Simpson has arrived at a Nevada prison.

Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Susanne Pardee says Simpson arrived Monday morning at High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs.

The all-male medium security prison is about 45 miles northwest of Las Vegas. It has 3,000 beds and serves as the intake center for new southern Nevada prison inmates.

The 61-year-old Simpson was sentenced Friday to nine to 33 years in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers over items that Simpson claimed were stolen from him.

A co-defendant, 54-year-old Clarence "C.J." Stewart, was sentenced to 7 1/2 to 27 years. He remained Monday at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas.
