The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners granted Simpson's parole based on the lack of previous criminal convictions on his record. However, Simpson is still in prison for related sentences, for which he has not been granted parole. He faces a minimum of four more years in prison and three parole hearings.
In early December 2013, Simpson was denied a new trial on his 2008 convictions by Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell. According to his attorneys,
Simpson is still able to appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court, and if that effort fails, he'll have a chance to claim a violation of his constitutional right to effective counsel through a federal court petition. Osvaldo Fumo, one attorney of Simpson's, stated of Bell's decision, "We're obviously very disappointed in the judge's decision. We plan to appeal the case."
Simpson is currently serving his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada.
