O.J. Simpson wins parole in robbery case

CARSON CITY, Nev. — O.J. Simpson has been granted parole on some charges
stemming from his 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery convictions involving the
holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel room.

The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners on Wednesday released an order
approving the former NFL star’s parole request.

But the order doesn’t mean Simpson will be leaving Lovelock Correctional Center
anytime soon. Because he was convicted on multiple charges, Simpson still faces
at least four more years in prison on sentences that were ordered to run

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.
