There were two offenders convicted of crimes against persons released on parole in Genoa during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the DeKalb Times.

The data shows that both of the released offenders in Genoa were men. The younger parolee was a 26-year-old man sentenced in 2013. The other was a 39-year-old man sentenced in 2008.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Christopher Swanson. He was convicted of a crime against a person in 2008 when he was 29 years old. He is now 39.

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 persons.
