There were 28 offenders convicted of crimes against persons released on parole in Joliet during the second half of 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Will County Gazette.

The data shows that 27 men and one woman were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes against persons was 35. The youngest parolee was a 23-year-old man sentenced in 2015, and the oldest was a 60-year-old man sentenced in 2015.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Theodore Williams. He was convicted of a crime against a person in 2011 when he was 22 years old. He is now 30.

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.
