There were 57 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Champaign County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Chambana Sun.

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.

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