By West Cook News | Jul 11, 2019


There were 88 offenders convicted of crimes involving alcohol released on parole in Chicago during the first quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that 84 men and four women were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving alcohol, three were veterans, and the median age was 44. The youngest parolee was a 23-year-old man sentenced in 2019, and the oldest was a 70-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Michael P. Albers. He was convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2011 when he was 24 years old. He is now 32.

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.
