There were five offenders convicted of financial crimes or fraud 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 four men and one woman were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for financial crimes or fraud was 36. The youngest parolee was a 22-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 56-year-old woman sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Ruth L. Terrell. She was convicted of a financial crime or fraud in 2018 when she was 54 years old. She is now 56.

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.
