      Alan Jones denied parole after reduced sentence

      Alan Jones
      New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision denied parole to Alan Jones.

      Earlier this month, the New York State Court of Appeals has upheld the manslaughter conviction of Alan Jones in the death of his step-sister Erin Maxwell, which calls for a reduced sentence of 5 to 15 years.

      Jones is serving the reduced for in the death of the little girl in 2008. The case gained wide attention for the horrid living conditions in the Palermo home of the Maxwell family.

      The parole board determined that the violent nature of the crime and "poor compliance with DOCCS rules" were grounds for denial.

      "Your receipt of multiple disciplinary violations during this term is disturbing. Due to the violence of the instant offense, and your poor compliance with DOCCS rules, your release at this time is denied. There is a reasonable probability you would not live and remain at liberty without violating the law," the parole board.

      Jonesâ?? next appearance date is scheduled for two years from now, in June of 2015.
