Community

By Local Labs News Service | Jan 7, 2019


There were three offenders convicted of crimes involving weapons 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 three men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving weapons was 29. The youngest parolee was a 26-year-old man sentenced in 2017, and the oldest was a 30-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Tashawn S. Wilson. He was convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2015 when he was 25 years old. He is now 29.

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 crimes involving weapons.
