There were five offenders convicted of crimes involving weapons released on parole in Waukegan during the second quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Lake County Gazette.

The data shows that five men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for crimes involving weapons was 26. The youngest parolee was a 21-year-old man sentenced in 2016, and the oldest was a 30-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Mark A. Ramirez. He was convicted of a crime involving one or more weapons in 2016 when he was 19 years old. He is now 21.

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.
