O.J. Simpson, the disgraced former football great, was granted parole Thursday amid his 33-year prison sentence for an armed robbery that has kept him behind bars in Nevada since 2008.

“I’ve done my time, I’ve done it as well and respectfully as anyone can,” the 70-year-old told parole board members via videoconference Thursday at the Lovelock Correctional Facility, around 90 miles northeast of Reno.

The board members came to their decision in a unanimous 4-0 vote, to which Simpson responded emotionally, saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you."  As he rose from his seat to return to his prison cell, he exhaled deeply.

Then, as he was led down a hall, the former athlete raised his hands over his head in a victory gesture and said, "Oh, God, oh!"
