There were 96 offenders released on parole during the first quarter that live in Macon County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Macon Reporter.

The data shows that 87 men and nine women were released in Macon County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 34. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2018, and the oldest was a 59-year-old man sentenced for a crime against a person in 2015.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Shannon L. Garry. He was convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2009 when he was 30 years old. He is now 40.

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.
