There were 19 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Williamson County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Peoria Standard.

The data shows that 17 men and two women were released in Williamson County. The median age of the parolees was 37. The youngest parolee was a 22-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving one or more weapons in 2019, and the oldest was a 57-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving drugs in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Marcus E. Funk. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2015 when he was 38 years old. He is now 43.

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