There were 14 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Macoupin County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by South Central Reporter.

The data shows that 12 men and two women were released in Macoupin County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 41. The youngest parolee was a 26-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2017, and the oldest was a 70-year-old man sentenced for a sex crime in 2004.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Robert A. Smith. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2004 when he was 55 years old. He is now 70.

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 Macoupin County municipality with at least one parolee in the quarter.
