There were two offenders convicted of homicide released on parole in Lake County during the first quarter of 2019, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Sangamon Sun.

The data shows that both of the released offenders among the parolees were men. The median age of the parolees sentenced for homicide was 41. The youngest parolee was a 37-year-old man sentenced in 2007, and the oldest was a 44-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Juan J. Tapia. He was convicted in 2007 when he was 25 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 following table shows how many offenders convicted of homicide were paroled during the first quarter of 2019 in each Illinois county.
