The data shows that both of the released offenders in the Garden Prairie zip code were men. The younger parolee was a 45-year-old man convicted of a financial crime or fraud in 2017, and the other was a 54-year-old man convicted of a property crime in 2016.
The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Steven Link. He was convicted of a property crime in 2016, when he was 54 years old. He is now 56.
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.
