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

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Waukegan were men. The younger parolee was a 26-year-old man sentenced in 2014. The other was a 27-year-old man sentenced in 2015.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Diego Flores. He was convicted of a crime against one or more children in 2014 when he was 21 years old. He is now 26.

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 2018 who were convicted of crimes against children.
