By Local Labs News Service | Jul 14, 2019


There were three offenders convicted of sex crimes 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 three men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for sex crimes was 32. The youngest parolee was a 30-year-old man sentenced in 2017, and the oldest was a 37-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Timothy C. Ontis. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2017 when he was 35 years old. He is now 37.

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 sex crimes.
