There were 11 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Hancock County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by West Central Reporter.

The data shows that nine men and two women were released in Hancock County. Of the parolees, one is a veteran, and the median age is 37. The youngest parolee was a 22-year-old woman sentenced for a property crime in 2017, and the oldest was a 60-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving alcohol in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Joshua Kessler. He was convicted of a crime against one or more children in 2016 when he was 37 years old. He is now 41.

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