The data shows that 96 men and eight women were released in the Chicago zip code. Of the parolees, two were veterans, and the median age was 39. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2018, and the oldest was a 62-year-old man convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2018.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Juan Figueroa. He was convicted of homicide in 1996, when he was 25 years old. He is now 49.
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.
