CARSON CITY, Nev. (CBSMiami/AP) – The Juice is almost loose. O.J. Simpson was granted parole on some of the charges stemming from a 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction.
The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners announced the parole on Wednesday that approved the former NFL star’s parole request. But, that doesn’t mean Simpson will be walking out of jail anytime soon.
Because he was convicted on multiple charges, O.J. still faces at least four more years in prison on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively instead of concurrently.
Simpson appeared before a two-member parole panel last Thursday to plead for leniency. He expressed regret for his actions and said he’s tried to be a model inmate while behind bars.
Prison officials say he’s had no disciplinary actions against him.
O.J. is currently imprisoned at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.
