By West Cook News | Jul 27, 2019


There were 30 offenders convicted of sex crimes released on parole in Chicago during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that 29 men and one woman were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for sex crimes, one is a veteran, and the median age is 43. The youngest parolee was a 24-year-old man sentenced in 2017, and the oldest was a 70-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was David Evans. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2006 when he was 39 years old. He is now 52.

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.
