December parole docket

A man sentenced to life for a 1985 attempted kidnapping conviction and another sentenced to 80 years on a 1990 burglary conviction are both on the December Pardon and Parole Board docket.

• Donald R. Maxwell, 59, began serving life in prison in February 1987 after being found guilty of attempted kidnapping. Maxwell had been accused of attempting to kidnap a Muskogee woman near Fifth and Court streets. The woman testified that Maxwell slapped her and pulled a gun from his coat pocket while he kept telling her to go into an alley or behind a building with him. He was previously convicted of more than four felonies, including first-degree rape.

• Delmar Brown Jr., 54, was ordered to serve two consecutive 80-year sentences in 1990 after a jury convicted him of burglarizing a Muskogee woman’s apartment and trying to rape her. He had previous convictions for first-degree rape and bogus check charges from Kingfisher County. Brown was on parole and had been attending substance abuse and sex offender counseling at the time of the burglary and attempted rape.

• Dondray Fowler, 23, also is on the docket for parole for a second-degree burglary conviction. Even if that parole is granted, he will remain in prison to serve out sentences for other convictions, including one for first-degree murder for the 2010 shooting death of Jerrod Reed at Arrowhead Mall. He also was found guilty of four counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Fowler received life with the possibility of parole for first-degree murder and sentences of 30 years for each count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. The sentences will run consecutive. His attorney has filed an appeal, which is pending.

The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board will meet from Dec. 2-6 at the Hillside Community Corrections Center, 3300 N. Martin Luther King Ave. in Oklahoma City. Video conferencing is used to conduct personal appearance hearings. A victim or victim representative who wishes to appear at a parole board hearing can notify the Pardon and Parole Board.

Information: Pardon and Parole Board, First National Center, 120 N. Robinson Ave., Suite 900W, Oklahoma City OK 73102 or call (405) 602-5863.
