Former football player O.J. Simpson, 68, is seen in an updated Nevada Department of Corrections booking photo released June 6, 2016 in Lovelock, Nevada.

In the Nevada state correctional system, he is known simply as prisoner 1027820.

To the rest of the world, he is of course O.J. Simpson, the NFL legend who was convicted in 2008 for his role in an armed robbery and kidnapping, and sentenced to up to 33 years in prison.

Photographs of Simpson in the Lovelock Correctional Center are rare verging on nonexistent. But this week, the state released a new mugshot of the former football star, his first in three years.
