There were 15 offenders convicted of crimes against persons released on parole in Decatur during the first quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Macon Reporter.

The data shows that 13 men and two women were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for crimes against persons, one is a veteran, and the median age is 35. The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old man sentenced in 2017, and the oldest was a 59-year-old man sentenced in 2015.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Maxwell P. Brown. He was convicted of a crime against a person in 2013 when he was 18 years old. He is now 24.

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.
