The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old man convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2016, and the oldest was a 70-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2016.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Kenneth J. Jackson. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2009 when he was 42 years old. He is now 52.
