Community

By East Central Reporter Reports | Jul 14, 2019


There were two offenders convicted of crimes against justice released on parole in Charleston during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the East Central Reporter.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Charleston were men. The younger parolee was a 24-year-old man sentenced in 2017. The other was a 29-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Brandon M. Bennett. He was convicted of a crime against justice in 2017 when he was 22 years old. He is now 24.

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 shows the 50 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in 2018 who were convicted of crimes against justice.
