The data shows that 371 men and 21 women were released in the Chicago zip code. Of the parolees, two were veterans, and the median age was 36. The youngest parolee was a 17-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2016, and the oldest was a 28-year-old man convicted of homicide in 1980.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Ulysses Edwards. He was convicted of homicide in 1980, when he was 28 years old. He is now 67.
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.
