Despite being paroled, he will not be out of Lovelock Correctional Center anytime soon. Simpson still faces at least four more years on his other charges including Kidnapping and holding up two sports memorabilia in Las Vegas.
“We expected it,” says Patricia Palm, one of Simpson’s current lawyers, to the The Associated Press shortly after the order was issued. “There is no reason not to grant him parole. I’m glad they did what they should have done.”
Simpson’s parole is effective October 2. He will begin serving the remaining sentence, minimum four years, at that time. Simpson has another parole hearing on those charges in a year.
