There were 119 offenders convicted of crimes against persons 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 107 men and 12 women were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for crimes against persons, three were veterans, and the median age was 36. The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old man sentenced in 2016, and the oldest was a 62-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Wilfredo Sanchez. He was convicted of a crime against a person in 2001 when he was 21 years old. He is now 38.

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.
