There were 22 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Knox County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Galesburg Reporter.

The data shows that 19 men and three women were released in Knox County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 38. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2019, and the oldest was a 73-year-old man sentenced for a crime against one or more children in 2017.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Jeffrey C. Malone. He was convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2003 when he was 40 years old. He is now 57.

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 gives a breakdown of how many offenders were paroled in the second quarter of 2019 in each Knox County municipality with at least one parolee in the quarter.
