O. J. Simpson sits for the second day of an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas on May 14.
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.
But the order doesn't mean Simpson will be released any time soon.
The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners on Wednesday released an order approving the former National Football League star's parole request.
But the order doesn't mean Simpson will be leaving Lovelock Correctional Center. He was convicted on multiple charges and faces at least four more years in prison on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively.
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.
