The Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles denied over the past two weeks parole for three men sentenced in Escambia County, Ala. Two of those for whom parole was denied were convicted of sex offenses; the third is behind state bars for convictions on drug and theft charges.
The board’s decision not to grant parole for Stacy Oneal Johnson, who has served seven years and seven months of a 20-year sentence for second-degree sodomy, came on June 4.
Johnson, 28, was also sentenced to serve 10 years for violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), but that sentence is to run concurrently with the other.
He remains at William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility. His minimum release date, without a pardon or parole, is October 14, 2032.
Samuel Weaver Jr., 58, was also denied parole. Weaver, who served almost 15 years of a 20-year sentence for a Covington County conviction for first-degree sodomy before being paroled in 2002, was sent back to prison in 2016 for a SORNA violation in Escambia County.
Weaver, who is housed at Fountain Correctional Facility, will not be released from prison until June 5, 2033 unless he is granted a pardon or parole. His hearing was held June 10.
The third Escambia County inmate, 30-year-old Sandro R. Ramieri, was denied parole on June 11.
Ramieri has served less than two years of a 5-year sentence for second-degree theft of property for bringing stolen property into a state prison. He was also found guilty on two counts of a Class D felony, possession of or receiving a controlled substance.
The minimum release date, without pardon or parole, for Ramieri, who is housed at Staton Correction Facility in Elmore, is August 4, 2020.
As the board works to clear a backlog of pardon and parole hearings that were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, parole will be considered this week for two other men convicted and sentenced in Escambia County Circuit Court — Wallace K. Booker and Kelly Edward Duncan.
