(Newser) – OJ Simpson won parole today, but it'll be a while before he's once again a free-ish man. The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners granted Simpson's request for parole in his 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery case, but the parole order only applies to some of the charges. Since he was convicted on other charges as well, the AP reports that he'll be in prison for at least four more years.
