Two Brewton men — one a convicted sex offender, the other a convicted robber — were each denied parole during recent hearings by the Alabama Board of Pardons & Paroles.
Samuel Weaver Jr.


Samuel Weaver Jr., 58, who served a 15-year sentence after being convicted of first-degree sodomy in Covington County before being paroled in 2001, was sent back to prison for 20 more years in 2016 for a Sex Offender Registration & Notification Act (SORNA) violation in Escambia County.
According to Alabama Department of Corrections records, Weaver will not be released from prison until June 5, 2033, unless he is granted parole or a pardon. He is housed at Fountain Correctional Facility,
Emmitt Jones III


After his arrest by Flomaton police, Emmitt Jones III spent more than three years (1,111 days) in the county jail while awaiting trial and transfer. He was convicted in 2007 of first-degree robbery, in 2008 of first-degree possession of marijuana and in 2017 of second-degree burglary and possession of a pistol by a violent felon.
Jones was sentenced to 20 years on the robbery charge, as well as 10 years on the marijuana charge and 20 years on both the burglary and weapons charges, but the latter three sentences are being served concurrently.
He is housed at Limestone Correctional Facility and will remain in prison until at least June 17, 2037, unless he is granted a pardon or parole.
