The Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles denied parole Tuesday to six violent offenders.
Three of those denials came in cases from Madison County.
Violent offenders denied parole Tuesday, according to a news release, are:
PAROLE DENIED: Deashton Luvoris Hayes is a two-time convicted robber. He was sentenced in 2010 to two years in prison for third-degree robbery and first-degree theft of property in Madison County. Just one year later, Hayes committed another robbery. In 2011, Al.com reported he robbed a man of a remote-controlled car by force. He was sentenced in 2012 to 15 years for that second-degree robbery, along with 10-year sentences for the original robbery and theft of property convictions. He continued his criminal activity in 2018 and was sentenced to five-years for distribution of controlled substances in Madison County. Hayes has served just one year, three months of that five-year prison sentence.
PAROLE DENIED: Deandre Quintero Love is a recaptured parole violator who has been sent to prison four separate times for crimes committed in Madison County. Love was sentenced to 10 years for a 2009 second-degree assault and 15 years for discharging a gun into an occupied building or car. Love committed a robbery two years later and was sentenced in 2012 to 15 years for second-degree robbery. Love in 2017 was sentenced to six more years in prison for two counts of possession and receiving controlled substances. He was paroled but then violated parole in 2018. In April 2019 Love was back in prison again, this time for five years, after another drug conviction. He has served just one year, three months of that prison sentence.

He has served just one year, four months of that eight-year term.
PAROLE DENIED: Diangelo Tarez Dudley was sentenced in 2003 to three years in prison for first-degree burglary in Tuscaloosa County.
