There were 2,221 offenders released on parole during the first quarter that live in Cook County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by South Cook News.

The data shows that 2,074 men and 147 women were released in Cook County. Of the parolees, 33 were veterans, and the median age was 36. The youngest parolee was a 18-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2019, and the oldest was a 79-year-old man sentenced for a sex crime in 2014.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Miles Barnes. He was convicted of homicide in 1983 when he was 28 years old. He is now 63.

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 first quarter in each Cook County municipality.
