There were 183 offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Vermilion County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Chambana Sun.

The data shows that 166 men and 17 women were released in Vermilion County. Of the parolees, two were veterans, and the median age was 35. The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2017, and the oldest was a 65-year-old man convicted of a crime against a person in 2012.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Andrew Eggleston. He was convicted of homicide in 2004 when he was 25 years old. He is now 40.

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.
