2 more locals denied parole

News Staff Writer

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.
