There were three offenders released on parole during the first quarter that live in Union County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Southern Illinois News.

The data shows that one man and two women were released in Union County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 48. The youngest parolee was a 40-year-old woman sentenced for a crime involving drugs in 2017, and the oldest was a 55-year-old woman sentenced for a property crime in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Rosa M. Parks. She was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2017 when she was 38 years old. She is now 40.

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 first quarter in each Union County municipality.
