CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Family members of Ron Goldman say they feel a sense of vulnerability after Nevada authorities granted O.J. Simpson parole on some charges stemming from his 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery convictions in Las Vegas.

Simpson was tried for murder and acquitted in Los Angeles for the 1994 death of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.

The Goldman family said Wednesday in a statement to The Associated Press that they’ve experienced a reprieve and calm while Simpson has been behind bars.

They say it is unsettling to know he may regain his freedom in a few years

The ruling on Wednesday doesn’t mean Simpson will leave prison. He must serve at least four more years on other sentences.

The Parole Board noted that the 66-year-old Simpson had no prior convictions.
