There were 96 offenders released on parole during the third quarter that live in Lake County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Sangamon Sun.

The data shows that 89 men and seven women were released in Lake County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 35. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2018, and the oldest was a 59-year-old man sentenced for a financial crime or fraud in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Eugene T. Henderson. He was convicted of homicide in 2013 when he was 34 years old. He 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.
