O.J. Simpson left Las Vegas' Clark County Justice Center Wednesday afternoon after posting a $125,000 bail.

Just hours before with friends, family and even former legal foe Marcia Clark waiting in a packed courtroom, Simpson began his day shackled and in prison blues as Judge Joe Bonaventure read-aloud all 11 charges he faces.

Ten of those are felonies from armed robbery to conspiracy to kidnapping.

Attorneys outlined an agreement that required Simpson to post bail, surrender his passport to his attorney and avoid any contact with witnesses, victims, co-defendants or anyone involved with the case.

The hearing lasted only 10-minutes and afterward Simpson's defense team talked briefly about his release.

"He is relieved, this has been a very harrowing experience for him," said attorney Yale Galanter.

The judge has set a tentative date of October 22 for that pre-trial hearing.
