Parolee Considered '2nd Most Dangerous' Before Murder Arrest

Tough questions Thursday for a state parole system trying to make repairs after a parolee slipped through the cracks and is now accused of murder.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Tough questions Thursday for a state parole system trying to make repairs after a parolee slipped through the cracks and is now accused of murder.

One state senator says he's met with parole officers and that Darrell Dennis, accused of killing a man in Little Rock was considered the second most dangerous parolee.

Dennis, 47, sits in prison.

But the ability of the parolee to avoid going back to prison despite numerous arrests led to a major shake up at the Department of Community Correction (DCC) in June with the retirement of former director David Eberhard.

Dennis is accused of killing Forrest Abrams, 18, in May.

State Senator David Sanders (R-Little Rock), is part of a committee reviewing what happened within DCC leading up to Dennis being let out of jail less than 48 hours before Abrams was found shot to death near Woodrow and 11th Street in Little Rock

"I don't think this legislature is going to let up," Sanders says.  "The sentiment seems to be if there are legislative changes that need to be made that they will not oppose us.  My hope is that they'll support us."
