(CNN) — O.J. Simpson was granted parole Wednesday on some charges related to his 2008 armed robbery convictions. But he won’t be freed from prison just yet because his sentences were to be served consecutively. He’ll have to serve at least four more years behind bars.

The Nevada Parole Board said in a statement that it reached its decision based on Simpson’s “institutional conduct, participation in programs, lack of prior conviction history and that he has consecutive sentences yet to serve.”
