The data shows that the 50 released offenders living in the Chicago zip code were men. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age was 42. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2017, and the oldest was a 63-year-old man convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2016.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Enoch Wilder. He was convicted of homicide in 1999, when he was 30 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.
