The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Wyman P. Allen. He was convicted of a crime against a person in 2014 when he was 40 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.
