By Metric Media News Service | Mar 21, 2020


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

The data shows that all of the released offenders in Calhoun County were men. The median age of the parolees was 40. The youngest parolee was a 29-year-old man sentenced for a sex crime in 2008, and the oldest was a 51-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2017.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Dennis R. Burge. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2015 when he was 35 years old. He is now 40.

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