There were 2,284 offenders released on parole during the second quarter that live in Cook County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Chicago City Wire.

The data shows that 2,148 men and 136 women were released in Cook County. Of the parolees, 18 were veterans, and the median age was 36. The youngest parolee was a 19-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2018, and the oldest was a 76-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Angel Soto. He was convicted of homicide in 1974 when he was 24 years old. He is now 69.

Under state law, paroled offenders are still in legal custody of the IDOC, meaning they can be taken back to a correctional center at any time if the state has probable cause or a warrant.

The table below gives a breakdown of how many offenders were paroled in the second quarter in each Cook County municipality.
