There were two offenders convicted of crimes against children released on parole in Chicago during the first quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Chicago City Wire.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Chicago were men. The younger parolee was a 24-year-old man sentenced in 2012. The other was a 52-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Jonathan Rodriguez. He was convicted of a crime against one or more children in 2012 when he was 17 years old. He is now 24.

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 shows the cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in Q1 2019 who were convicted of crimes against children.
