Parole granted for some charges related to robbery

(Reuters) – O.J. Simpson was granted parole in Nevada on several charges related to his role in the robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers, but the former football star will remain in prison on other charges, the state Board of Parole Commissioners ruled on Wednesday.

Simpson was sentenced in 2008 to up to 33 years in prison in the case.

The board said it was granting Simpson parole on charges of kidnapping, robbery and burglary with a firearm because of his positive conduct while in prison, his participation in programs for inmates, his lack of prior convictions and the fact that he has other sentences to serve that will keep him in prison.
