Community

By Local Labs News Service | Jul 12, 2019


There were two offenders convicted of homicide released on parole in Springfield during the first quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Sangamon Sun.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Springfield were men. Of these parolees, one is a veteran. The younger parolee was a 33-year-old man sentenced in 2014. The other was a 45-year-old man sentenced in 1997.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Robert B. Collingwood. He was convicted of homicide in 1997 when he was 23 years old. He is now 45.

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 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in Q1 2019 who were convicted of homicide.
