Community

By Local Labs News Service | Jul 12, 2019


There were two offenders convicted of crimes against justice released on parole in Niles during the first quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the North Cook News.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Niles were men. The younger parolee was a 27-year-old man sentenced in 2018. The other was a 29-year-old man sentenced in 2019.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Patrick Opalka. He was convicted of a crime against justice in 2018 when he was 26 years old. He is now 27.

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 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in Q1 2019 who were convicted of crimes against justice.
