There were 25 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Coles County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by East Central Reporter.

The data shows that 17 men and eight women were released in Coles County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 38. The youngest parolee was a 22-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2018, and the oldest was a 65-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving drugs in 2006.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Joseph Henne. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2006 when he was 51 years old. He is now 65.

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