There were two offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Menard County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Sangamon Sun.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Menard County were men. The younger parolee was a 25-year-old man sentenced for a crime against a person in 2019. The other was a 26-year-old man sentenced for a financial crime or fraud in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Braxton E. Hummell. He was convicted of a financial crime or fraud in 2018 when he was 24 years old. He is now 26.

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 gives a breakdown of how many offenders were paroled in the second quarter of 2019 in each Menard County municipality with at least one parolee in the quarter.
