There were three offenders convicted of homicide released on parole in Waukegan during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the Lake County Gazette.

The data shows that three men were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for homicide was 54. The youngest parolee was a 34-year-old man sentenced in 2010, and the oldest was a 67-year-old man sentenced in 1980.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Carl Michaels. He was convicted of homicide in 1980 when he was 28 years old. He is now 67.

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.
