There were 175 offenders released on parole during the second quarter of 2019 that live in Winnebago County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Rockford Sun.

The data shows that 157 men and 18 women were released in Winnebago County. Of the parolees, two were veterans, and the median age was 36. The youngest parolee was a 19-year-old man sentenced for a property crime in 2017, and the oldest was a 73-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving alcohol in 2018.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Derek Sorg. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2010 when he was 47 years old. He is now 57.

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