A Henry County man sentenced to more than 400 years in prison for sexually assaulting young girls will remain behind bars a while longer.
District attorney Doug Valeska traveled to Montgomery Monday and successfully blocked the parole of 84 year old B.C Money.
Money received maximum sentences in 1995 for raping and sexually abusing two 7 year old girls.
Valeska said Money was eligible for parole after serving little more than ten years because he was sentenced under an old Alabama law.
"You were eligible for parole, like i said, on one-third or ten years. It was kind of like an unwritten rule, in other words, you could be brought up by the parole board in other words, based on state statute. It was nothing the parole board passed specifically. It was the Alabama law," said Valeska.
Presiding Judge Lawson little wrote the parole board a letter protesting money's release.
Money won't be eligible for parole again for five years.
