(Newser) – OJ Simpson has big plans when he's released from prison after nine years—which could happen as early as Monday. "He wants to eat seafood; he wants to eat steak," attorney Malcolm LaVergne tells ABC News. "He wants to enjoy the very simple pleasures that he hasn't enjoyed in nine years." Those simple pleasures apparently include buying the "latest iPhone," according to LaVergne. He says his client has been "bored out of his mind" while being kept in isolation since his parole decision in July. LaVergne says Simpson plans to head for Florida upon his release. Meanwhile, CBS News reports a recent poll found 65% of people think Simpson will "mostly be ignored" upon his release from prison. Just 27% think he'll return to being a celebrity.
