Parolees living in state nursing homes

Chris Fusco and Lori Rackl of the Chicago Sun-Times used state documents to show that sixty-one criminals on parole from the state's prison system are living in 37 nursing homes alongside vulnerable people who have virtually no way of knowing they're there. "The Sun-Times found an example of this in southwest suburban Bridgeview at Midway Neurological & Rehab Center, formerly called Century Village. Among the 404-bed facility's residents is Louis White, 35, a convicted second-degree murderer who also was convicted of sexually abusing a girl in 1999." The story provides a graphic detailing the number of offenders in each facility, age ranges of the offenders and the types of offenses the parolees committed.
