There were 123 offenders released on parole during the first quarter that live in Kankakee County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by Kankakee Times.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Jorge Soberanis. He was convicted of a crime involving drugs in 2003 when he was 44 years old. He is now 60.
