The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Jermaine Jones. He was convicted of homicide in 1993 when he was 21 years old. He is now 45.
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.
