By Local Labs News Service | Aug 11, 2019


There were four offenders convicted of sex crimes released on parole in Springfield during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Sangamon Sun.

The data shows that four men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for sex crimes was 48. The youngest parolee was a 30-year-old man sentenced in 2008, and the oldest was a 60-year-old man sentenced in 2010.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Charles L. Connor Jr. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2010 when he was 51 years old. He is now 60.

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.
