The data shows that 21 men and one women were released in Greene County. The median age of the parolees was 34. The youngest parolee was a 24-year-old man convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2016, and the oldest was a 67-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2012.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Michael R. Meeks. He was convicted of a property crime in 2012 when he was 60 years old. He is now 67.
