Two Kansas Department of Corrections inmates with convictions in area counties are scheduled for parole hearings in October and could be eligible for parole in November.
Stuart Barry Fish, 51, also known as “Outlaw,” is incarcerated at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility in a low-medium security level. He was convicted of criminal damage to property over $100 in 1983, and theft over $150 in 1987, both in Pawnee County. The cases remain active as he also has several 1991 convictions for crimes committed in Sedgwick County: two counts of aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping. Fish was paroled to Edwards County in 2011, but a warrant was issued for him in September 2012 after a parole violation.
Harold H. Crandall, 51, is incarcerated at Hutchinson Correction Facility-East and his security level is also low-medium. He has a 1980 Stafford County conviction for passing a worthless check of $50 or more. The case remains active as he is also a sex offender. He has a 1987 conviction in Harvey County for indecent liberties with a child. While on parole in Sedgwick County in 2002, he fondled two juvenile victims and was convicted of aggravated indecent liberties with a child 14-16 years old and aggravated indecent liberties with a child under 14 years. He also has two 1983 Harper County convictions, for theft over $100 and burglary.
