Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson will go before a Nevada parole board later this month, but he’s not getting out of jail anytime soon.
According to the Associated Press, Simpson will go before a parole board on his 2008 kidnapping conviction. But the 66-year-old Simpson was also convicted of armed robbery, and some of this other sentences were ordered to be served consecutively, meaning they won’t begin until other sentences end.
Simpson was convicted of 12 counts after he robbed two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas in 2007, with the sentences totaling between nine and 33 years.
He’s also trying to get a new trial on those charges, with his defense team saying his previous lawyers botched the case.
Of course, if that wasn’t true of different team of lawyers, he might not have been free to commit a robbery.
