July-Dec. 2018 Recap: Parolees in Chicago convicted of crimes against children

Community

By West Cook News | Jul 27, 2019


There were two offenders convicted of crimes against children 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 both of the released offenders in Chicago were men. The younger parolee was a 30-year-old man sentenced in 2017. The other was a 42-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Luis A. Ramirez Mejia. He was convicted of a crime against one or more children in 2017 when he was 29 years old. He is now 30.

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 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders during the second half of 2018 who were convicted of crimes against children.
