The data shows that 109 men and two women were released in the Chicago zip code. Of the parolees, two were veterans, and the median age was 37. The youngest parolee was a 19-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 property crime in 2012.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Darryl Johnson. He was convicted of homicide in 1993, when he was 29 years old. He is now 56.
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.
