There were 46 offenders convicted of homicide released on parole in Chicago during the fourth quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Chicago City Wire.

The data shows that 43 men and three women were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for homicide was 41. The youngest parolee was a 19-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 77-year-old man sentenced in 1978.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Michael Henderson. He was convicted of homicide in 1974 when he was 21 years old. He is now 66.

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.
