There were 96 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 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, five were veterans, and the median age was 37. The youngest parolee was a 19-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2018, and the oldest was a 62-year-old man sentenced for a crime against justice in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Michael W. Ward. He was convicted of a property crime in 2002 when he was 34 years old. He is now 52.

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 gives a breakdown of how many offenders were paroled in the second quarter of 2019 in each Macon County municipality with at least one parolee in the quarter.
