The data shows that both of the released offenders among the parolees were men. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes against persons was 43. The youngest parolee was a 41-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 45-year-old man sentenced in 2008.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Ralph Watson. He was convicted in 2008 when he was 34 years old. He is now 45.
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.
