There were five offenders convicted of crimes involving weapons released on parole in Aurora during the second quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the DuPage Policy Journal.

The data shows that four men and one woman were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving weapons was 22. The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 25-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Melissa Truesdell. She was convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2015 when she was 18 years old. She is now 22.

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 shows the 50 cities in Illinois with the most paroled offenders in Q2 2018 who were convicted of crimes involving weapons.
