There were two offenders convicted of drug crimes released on parole in Mount Prospect during the first half of 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the North Cook News.

The data shows that a man and woman were released in Mount Prospect. The younger parolee was a 27-year-old man sentenced in 2017. The other was a 37-year-old woman sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Tess Thomison. She was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2017 when she was 35 years old. She is now 37.

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 during the first half of 2018 who were convicted of drug crimes.
