By West Cook News | Jul 28, 2019


There were 79 offenders convicted of crimes against justice 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 73 men and six women were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes against justice was 36. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 68-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Patrick Anderson. He was convicted of a crime against justice in 2015 when he was 30 years old. He is now 34.

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.
