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

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Pulaski County were men. The younger parolee was a 44-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 1996. The other was a 56-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2017.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was John L. Farris. He was convicted of a property crime in 2017 when he was 53 years old. He is now 56.

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 Pulaski County municipality with at least one parolee in the quarter.
