The data shows that 53 men and four women were released in Champaign County. The median age of the parolees was 36. The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old woman sentenced for a property crime in 2019, and the oldest was a 67-year-old woman sentenced for a property crime in 2016.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Wayne S. Mikel. He was convicted of homicide in 1978 when he was 22 years old. He is now 64.
