The data shows that 300 men and 35 women were released in Sangamon County. Of the parolees, five were veterans, and the median age was 35. The youngest parolee was a 19-year-old man convicted of a crime against a person in 2017, and the oldest was a 69-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2011.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Timothy L. Clark. He was convicted of homicide in 1990 when he was 22 years old. He is now 52.
