Community

By Local Labs News Service | Oct 7, 2018


There were four offenders convicted of drug crimes released on parole in Evanston during the third quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the North Cook News.

The data shows that four men were among the parolees. Of the parolees sentenced for drug crimes, one is a veteran, and the median age is 43. The youngest parolee was a 31-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 52-year-old man sentenced in 2013.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Mark A. Clark. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2017 when he was 39 years old. He is now 41.

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 Q3 2018 who were convicted of drug crimes.
