The data shows that 215 men and 17 women were released in the Chicago zip code. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age was 35. The youngest parolee was a 19-year-old man convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2018, and the oldest was a 69-year-old man convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2018.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Clark Brown. He was convicted of homicide in 1992, when he was 16 years old. He is now 43.
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.
