Community

By West Cook News | Jul 28, 2019


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

The data shows that six men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes against children was 44. The youngest parolee was a 28-year-old man sentenced in 2015, and the oldest was a 59-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Peter D'Amico. He was convicted of a crime against one or more children in 2015 when he was 50 years old. He is now 54.

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.

The table below shows the 50 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in 2018 who were convicted of crimes against children.
