There were 17 offenders convicted of property crimes released on parole in Berwyn during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that 16 men and one woman were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for property crimes, one is a veteran, and the median age is 38. The youngest parolee was a 24-year-old man sentenced in 2015, and the oldest was a 64-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Eddy A. Pizarro. He was convicted of a property crime in 2010 when he was 39 years old. He is now 48.

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.
