Larry Kolonusz

The Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles will hold several parole hearings next month, including one for a man serving two life sentences

Larry Dale Ko-lonusz has a parole hearing set for March 11. He is serving two life sentences for robberies in Houston and Dale counties, both committed on the same night in 1986. Kolonusz was convicted in 1989.

According to the Parole Board, Kolonusz was involved in robberies of a Junior Food Store in Dothan and another in Midland City.

His criminal history includes two convictions of third-degree burglary and theft of property, and a charge of receiving stolen property.

In 2011, he was convicted of manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. A year later, he was convicted of receiving stolen property.

He was sent back to prison for 20 years for those crimes, and to serve out the life sentences for the two robberies.
