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

The data shows that three men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving alcohol was 43. The youngest parolee was a 38-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 52-year-old man sentenced in 2016.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Byron P. Dupree. He was convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2016 when he was 49 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.
