Man With More Than 100 Years Parole Is Arrested

In the state court system, officials say he's known as "Bill" Slone. A man with a long wrap sheet with criminal convictions in at least five different states, including five convictions for escaping prison in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Kansas and Kentucky. But Slone is back behind bars, this time in the minimal security Clay county detention center.

Even with his criminal history, Department of Corrections spokesperson Cheryl Million says anyone serving between 15 years to life on parole, only has to have two years supervised, before gaining a little more freedom as Slone did with *unsupervised* parole.

After checking into Slone's background that included prison escapes, assaulting an officer and car thefts, Sheriff Kevin Johnson says he was surprised that the parole was unsupervised.

"Through hard work and some luck we was able to purchase these narcotics off of him," he says. "Get him off the streets as far as bringing them into Clay County."
