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

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Worth were women. The younger parolee was a 39-year-old woman sentenced in 2018. The other was a 48-year-old woman sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Melissa S. Lloyd. She was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2018 when she was 38 years old. She is now 39.

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 Q4 2018 who were convicted of drug crimes.
