There were 125 offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Williamson County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Carbondale Reporter.

The data shows that 111 men and 14 women were released in Williamson County. Of the parolees, one was a veteran, and the median age was 38. The youngest parolee was a 22-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2016, and the oldest was a 75-year-old man convicted of a sex crime in 2008.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Kenneth D. Gravatt. He was convicted of a property crime in 1990 when he was 25 years old. He is now 54.

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.
