There were two offenders convicted of drug crimes released on parole in Chicago Ridge during the second quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the South Cook News.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Chicago Ridge were men. The younger parolee was a 47-year-old man sentenced in 2017. The other was a 57-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Brandon Hearns. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2017 when he was 44 years old. He is now 47.

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 shows the 50 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in Q2 2018 who were convicted of drug crimes.
