By West Cook News | Jul 27, 2019


There were 353 offenders convicted of crimes involving alcohol released on parole in Chicago during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that 330 men and 23 women were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving alcohol, four were veterans, and the median age was 43. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced in 2016, and the oldest was a 70-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Anthony Morales. He was convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2011 when he was 33 years old. He is now 41.

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.
