The Nevada Parole Board has granted parole to former NFL star O.J. Simpson, but Simpson will not walk out of prison for another four years. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery when he and other men attempted to recover sports memorabilia that the former running back claimed belonged to him.
The parole board based its decision on Simpson’s good conduct, his participation in prison programs and his lack of a prior criminal record. The additional four years in prison are the result of the 66-year-old Simpson being given consecutive sentences on some of the charges.
