There were 363 offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Kane County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Kane County Reporter.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Bessie Rowlen. She was convicted of homicide in 1990 when she was 24 years old. She is now 52.
