There were two offenders convicted of crimes involving weapons released on parole in Tazewell County during the first quarter of 2019, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Peoria Standard.

The data shows that both of the released offenders among the parolees were men. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving weapons was 38. The youngest parolee was a 36-year-old man sentenced in 2016, and the oldest was a 40-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was John W. Bishop. He was convicted in 2016 when he was 33 years old. He is now 36.

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 following table shows how many offenders convicted of crimes involving weapons were paroled during the first quarter of 2019 in each Illinois county.
