(Reuters) – O.J. Simpson has been granted parole in Nevada on charges of kidnapping, robbery and burglary with a firearm but the former football star will remain in prison on other counts, under a ruling released on Wednesday by the state Board of Parole Commissioners.

The board stated it was granting Simpson parole because of his positive conduct behind bars, his participation in programs for inmates, his lack of prior convictions and the fact he has other sentences to serve that will keep him in prison.
