There were 167 offenders convicted of crimes against justice released on parole in Chicago during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that 159 men and eight women were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for crimes against justice, two were veterans, and the median age was 35. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 68-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Omar Moore. He was convicted of a crime against justice in 2011 when he was 41 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.
