There were three offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Brown County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by West Central Reporter.

The data shows that all of the released offenders in Brown County were men. Of the parolees, one was a veteran, and the median age was 37. The youngest parolee was a 31-year-old man convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2018, and the oldest was a 49-year-old man convicted of a crime involving alcohol in 2017.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Zachary Cissna. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2015 when he was 27 years old. He is now 31.

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.
