LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — Two inmates serving time on sex-abuse charges will soon learn if they will be granted parole, according to the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles (ABPP).
Billy Creel Harville, Jr., 42, was sentenced to 20 years in prison after accepting a plea deal.
According to court documents, Harville was charged in 2005 with two counts of first-degree rape, two counts of second-degree rape, one count of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of first-degree sodomy. .
In the plea agreement, Harville pleaded guilty to both sexual abuse charges. Since his conviction, he has served 18 years and just over two months at Bullock Correctional Facility, according to the Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC).
Court documents say police investigated the case against Harville in 2004 and found the victim was a 13-year-old member of a family Harville was living with at the time the alleged offenses occurred. Records also showed that another victim, aged 12 at the time, had been abused in the same home.
Christopher Latroy Liles, 43, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, according to ADOC.
Online court documents show Liles was indicted in 2017 on a first-degree rape charge. However, he pleaded guilty to the sexual abuse charges.
Liles served four years and five months at Limestone Correctional Center, according to ADOC records.
Authorities say Liles was charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old child while he was staying with the child’s family at their Florence home.
Both men are expected to find out whether they will be granted or denied parole on August 31.
