Community

By Local Labs News Service | Jan 7, 2019


There were two offenders convicted of financial crimes or fraud released on parole in Evanston during the fourth quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the North Cook News.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Evanston were men. The younger parolee was a 32-year-old man sentenced in 2018. The other was a 76-year-old man sentenced in 2016.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Zulfikar Esmail. He was convicted of a financial crime or fraud in 2016 when he was 73 years old. He is now 76.

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 Q4 2018 who were convicted of financial crimes or fraud.
