CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — 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.

So this means he’s now free to once again look for the ‘real killers’?

Do they rig EVERYTHING in Nevada?

Boxing matches, slot machines, elections, parole hearings?

For all the race baiters out there, and disciples of race baiters, I used to really enjoy this guy's campy performances in the movies.  It was such a disappointment to have to watch all that followed.

No.. he's in on multiple charges, so I think it's at least 4 more years.

I doubt this one came from Nevada. The DOJ likely got involved.

He’s got 4 more years. He’ll be 70 when he gets out.

O.J. Simpson murdered two people, but for his crimes committed in Las Vegas, the sentences were far too severe. This current status is fair for the crimes for which he was actually convicted.

Hopefully it’ll be at least 4 more years the way that prison food agrees with him.

Probably a “Trayvon” decision from the judge.

"My crime was trying to retrieve for my family my own property," Simpson said."

He's always been a solid family guy and loving spouse.

I’m confused, I thought he owed the Goldman’s millions - did he pay it?

Thank Trayvon. It’s like evening the score card. That’s how our racially energized DOJ works.

I used to really enjoy this guy's campy performances in the movies.

His character in The Naked Gun was hysterical, but the foundation of the character was the man himself, O.J. Simpson. He had such a spotless reputation that the audience was instantly sympathetic to him, which made his comedic pratfalls even funnier. Another, less sympathetic actor wouldn't not have pulled it off as well as he did. Now, the audience has to look at the character differently. He deserves what is coming to him, and the only way to enjoy the Naked Gun is to enjoy his misery.

But the decision doesn't mean Simpson will be leaving prison 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 consecutively

Um, 9-33 for armed robbery is not "too severe."

You can get sentenced to life for in a number of states.

I agree with your comments. It’s hard to watch the Naked Gun movies now, for me at least. It’s sad how events that happen sometimes destroy our ability to glean happiness from remembrances of what used to give us such enjoyment.

I think he means far to severe for any one of Holder’s people.

From what I’ve read, he’s got severe diabetes and is borrowed time.

Four more years then parole? That doesn’t make sense.

He was convicted of multiple charges and some of the sentences run consecutively, so he starts a new sentence now.

Thanks. I read the article AFTER my post to you.

So it’s parole for just some of the charges. Interesting, he might’ get a new trial. I read somewhere that he was in agreement with the not guilty verdict of Zimmerman.

O.J. had originally been pitched for the lead role in ‘Terminator’. James Cameron dismissed the idea thinking that O.J. would not make a convincing killer.

Good. Four more years of eating prison junk food. I should send a check to the prison commissary to pay for all of the candy bars he can eat. I hope his diabetes is under control. It would be a shame if he died in prison right before his release date.

You are in wrong country, or I should say you are in agreement with current judge?

It`s illegal to find someone guilty of a offense based on a charge that was dismissed or acquitted/found not guilty of

OJ is now in jail along with a fairly innocent friend, that had no record, both had max or above max sentence ,and only in a attempt to get even with OJ for disagreeing with verdict in other case.

You OK this type of thing with OJ and you are going to at some point do it to a innocent person

The same type of folks are now attempting to do the same to George Zimmerman, a backdoor prosecution to the charge he rightly beat.

I don’t approve/// Did not mean to single you out, wanted to comment on OJ decision of today, did not see it, so I chose your post because it fit the bil
