Community

By West Cook News | Jul 26, 2019


There were 157 offenders convicted of crimes involving alcohol released on parole in Chicago during the second half of 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that 147 men and 10 women were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving alcohol, two were veterans, and the median age was 43. The youngest parolee was a 23-year-old man sentenced in 2017, and the oldest was a 65-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Anita M. Jarmon. She was convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2011 when she was 51 years old. She is now 58.

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 during the second half of 2018 who were convicted of crimes involving alcohol.
