It's official.

63 year old Gerald Wayne (J.B.) Bounds of McMinnville will remain in prison at least for another year.

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles has voted to concur with a recommendation by two of it's members Yusuf Hakeem and Charles Taylor that Bounds be denied parole due to the seriousness of the offense in the 1981 fatal shooting of 27 year old Sherman Wright of DeKalb County.

Following Bounds' latest parole hearing last month, Hakeem and Taylor recommended that Bounds be "put off" for two years before his next parole hearing, but the state board has decided instead to review Bound's case again in October, 2011.

The board has requested that Bounds undergo a psychological evaluation prior to his next hearing, as was recommended by parole board members Hakeem and Taylor.

Bounds, convicted of first degree murder, is serving a life prison sentence at the Southeast Regional Correctional Facility in Pikeville.
