There were 20 offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Clark County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by East Central Reporter.

The data shows that 16 men and four women were released in Clark County. The median age of the parolees was 36. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2017, and the oldest was a 49-year-old man convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2016.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Charles J. Richey. He was convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2013 when he was 34 years old. He is now 39.

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.
