THE JUICE IS SET LOOSE!! – Simpson wins parole victory on some charges, should be out within 4 years. He was facing life in prison before today.
O.J. Simpson won a small (?) victory Wednesday in his bid for freedom as Nevada granted him parole on some of his convictions in a 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery involving the holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel room.
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
The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners on Wednesday released an order approving the former NFL star’s parole request.
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.
Lovelock Correctional Center officials say he’s had no disciplinary actions against him.

Simpson was convicted in December 2008 on charges including kidnapping, robbery, burglary and assault with a deadly weapon. He was sentenced to nine to 33 years for the 2007 stick up of two memorabilia dealers, Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong.
Simpson still faces time for four weapon enhancement sentences, following by consecutive terms for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
Estimates are now that he could be out in 4 years instead of the life sentence he had. Why the MSM media is calling it a small victory doesn’t make much sense.
