No parole for Brewton men


News Staff Writer

Three Brewton men — two of them convicted of dealing drugs, the other as a habitual arsonist — were denied parole during recent hearings by the Alabama Board of Pardons & Paroles.
Gary Henderson, who has spent more than 27 years behind bars, was sentenced under the Habitual Felony Offender Act to life with the possibility of parole in 1996 when he was convicted of second-degree arson for setting fire to Pleasant Hill Holiness Church, as well as two second-degree arson charges in Conecuh County.
Henderson, currently housed at Frank Lee Work Release, was also convicted on three counts of second-degree arson in Mobile and Washington counties in 1981. The convicted pyromaniac was given a 3-year sentence but served little more than half because he had accumulated almost 15 months of “good time.”
Unless he is granted parole or pardon, he will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Da’Quain Markail Kiser was sentenced in 2017 to serve 15 years after his conviction on charges of distributing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and first-degree escape.
Kiser was reportedly in possession of crack cocaine, Spice and marijuana when he was arrested by Atmore police.
He had served barely 2 years of the sentence on his parole hearing date but had accumulated 1,297 days (more than 3-1/2 years) of “good time.”
His minimum release date without parole or pardon is August 3, 2025. He is currently housed at Limestone Correctional Facility.
Andre Dewayne Campbell, housed at Kilby Correctional Facility, was sentenced in 2020 to serve 130 months in prison after his conviction on two counts of distributing a controlled substance and one count of possession of a controlled substance. He had served barely 13 months of the sentence when his hearing was held.
Campbell was also convicted in 2011 of distributing a controlled substance and intimidating a witness and was sentenced to 8 years, 8 months in prison. He served less than 2 years but was released because he accumulated 2,232 days (more than 6 years) of “good time.”
He was also convicted in 2008 of possession of a controlled substance and sentenced to 10 years. He served not quite 3 years before he was paroled.
