The data shows that 54 men and four 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 20-year-old man convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2017, and the oldest was a 58-year-old man convicted of a crime against justice in 2017.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Jamar Miles. He was convicted of homicide in 1993, when he was 23 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.
