Two more Escambia County men were denied parole last week by the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles. The board gave consideration on July 7 to parole for 20 state inmates, including former county residents Samuel J. Crenshaw and Quayon McCants.
Crenshaw, 33, has served three years and four months of a 15-year sentence imposed in Escambia County Circuit Court when he was convicted of first-degree escape.
He served a two-year sentence in 2008 on a first-degree theft conviction in Baldwin County. That also wiped out a concurrent two-year sentence for a first-degree escape charge. Nine years later he escaped from an unnamed facility in Escambia County.
His minimum release date without a pardon or parole is May 1, 2021.
McCants, 32, is serving a 15-year sentence for what is listed by corrections officials as “Offense-Other, Class B felony.”
He has served two years and 7 months behind bars. His minimum release date, without pardon or parole, is January 31, 2022.
