The Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles held 31 hearings on June 8, two of which involved offenders who were convicted in Chilton County. Cornell Keson Holeman and Royce Earl Willie both had their parole hearings decisions handed down.

Willie, who is serving a 14-year-and-5-month sentence for sodomy I and was sentenced on Nov. 20, 2013, had his hearing continued to later this year on Aug. 8.

Holeman, who was serving a 35-year sentence for consecutive charges in Montgomery County for receiving stolen property, and also a concurrent 7-year sentence stemming from a May 11, 2017 theft of property I offense in Chilton County, was granted parole with a special condition to detainer and/or program. He must also receive a mental health follow-up.

Neither had anyone speak for or against them being granted parole.
