The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Reginald Willis. He was convicted of homicide in 2001 when he was 24 years old. He is now 42.
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.
