The offender who had been incarcerated the longest is Miles Barnes. He was convicted of homicide in 1983 when he was 28 years old. He is now 63.
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.
