AP: Parolee Who Got Out Of Prison Early Charged With Decatur Murder


A man who was let out of an Illinois prison early under the state’s revamped early release program is now accused of murder. 

 

The Associated Press reports that Joshua Jones was released in May, five months ahead of his scheduled release on drug charges.  But just three months after he was let out, Jones was charged in the murder of a Decatur man earlier this month. 

 

The revised early-release program replaced one in 2010 that let some violent offenders out early. So far, under the new program, only about one-percent of the released offenders have been sent back to prison.
