There were three offenders convicted of public safety violations released on parole in Chicago during the first half of 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Chicago City Wire.

The data shows that two men and one woman were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for public safety violations was 40. The youngest parolee was a 25-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 66-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Eddie J. Lishman. He was convicted of a public safety violation in 2018 when he was 65 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.

The table below shows the cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders during the first half of 2018 who were convicted of public safety violations.
