There were two offenders convicted of drug crimes released on parole in Percy during the second quarter, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the SW Illinois News.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Percy were men. The younger parolee was a 20-year-old man sentenced in 2016. The other was a 45-year-old man sentenced in 2017.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Jerry D. Pelate. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2016 when he was 18 years old. He is now 20.

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 Q2 2018 who were convicted of drug crimes.
