Describing the bleak, isolated world of the Lovelock Correctional Center, Scotto explained, “He has to build his life in prison, unfortunately.”

“It makes him very depressed when he talks to the outside world,” Scotto admitted. “…He’d rather try to put it out of his mind. Everybody deal with things different ways, and this is his way of dealing with it, I guess."

But that’s not to say life inside is total misery. “He’s the King in there!” Scotto said. “Everybody loves O.J.”
