Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson was granted parole on some of his convictions from a 2008 armed robbery, but he’s not getting out of jail any time soon.
According to the Associated Press, Simpson still faces at least four more years in jail because he was convicted on multiple charges, and some of the sentences run consecutively.
The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners approved Simpson’s parole request Wednesday. He appeared at a hearing last week, and said he regretted his involvement in the 2007 incident in which he held up two memorabilia dealers.
Simpson said during his hearing he promised the warden he’d be a model inmate and “the best person” they’ve had in the facility, adding: “I think for the most part I’ve kept my word on that.”
Simpson’s also awaiting a decision on a new trial on the original charges, claiming he was improperly represented. If a new trial is granted, there’s a chance prosecutors won’t retry the case, or give him credit for time served.
