There were 71 offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Jefferson County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by North Egypt News.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Robert D. Frey. He was convicted of a sex crime in 2010 when he was 54 years old. He is now 63.
