There were 2,243 offenders released on parole during the third quarter that live in Cook County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by South Cook News.

The data shows that 2,120 men and 123 women were released in Cook County. Of the parolees, 20 were veterans, and the median age was 36. 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 73-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2007.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Anthony Habener. He was convicted of homicide in 1988 when he was 27 years old. He is now 59.

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 third quarter in each Cook County municipality.
