There were nine offenders released on parole during the first quarter that live in Morgan County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by West Central Reporter.

The data shows that all of the released offenders in Morgan County were men. The median age of the parolees was 36. The youngest parolee was a 27-year-old man sentenced for a crime against one or more children in 2015, and the oldest was a 56-year-old man sentenced for a sex crime in 2011.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Richard D. Henson. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2011 when he was 48 years old. He is now 56.

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 first quarter in each Morgan County municipality.
