Five inmates described as "violent offenders" were denied parole Tuesday, including two with multiple convictions from Marshall and DeKalb counties.
The Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles reported results of the hearings in a press release.
Vondale Parker was sentenced in 2017 to five years in prison for first-degree robbery and 15 years for promoting prison contraband, according to the board, but he had a number of other convictions, all in Marshall County:
2013: 10-year sentence for possession of chemicals with the intent to manufacture drugs.
2005: 15-year sentence for second-degree assault, after Parker assaulted his estranged girlfriend with a sharp object, then drove her around for about two hours before dropping her at a hospital; he was paroled in 2008.
1999: 15-year sentence for a Class C felony
1996: 15-year sentence for second-degree arson and third-degree burglary; he received a split sentence, to serve six months in prison and the rest on probation, but he violated probation and was sent back to prison, was released again and again violated probation and was sent back to prison in 1999.

In 1986, Rowe was convicted on two counts of second-degree rape in DeKalb County, involving a 16-year-old victim. He received a one-year sentence and, after his release, was convicted of third-degree robbery in Marshall County.
In 1994, he was sent back to prison for seven years, but escaped. He was caught and in 1998 was sentenced in Madison County to two years in prison.

In 2006, he got a two-year sentence for failing to register as a sex offender in Jackson County, and three more years in prison for the same offense in Chilton County.
In 2016, he was convicted of a SORNA violation in DeKalb County and sentenced to 15 years.
In December 2018, Rowe was arrested in Mobile County on a SORNA violation, and for being a convicted sex offender with a Facebook account, sending him back to prison.
