Mama,
Once your inmate has received his new calculation sheet the new out date should be posted soon thereafter. They do not differentiate between the two types of good time. The records office people are the ones responsible for entering the correct out date on the computers. Might be worth a call to find out why they are not doing their job.

rtippie,

Do you or anyoneelse know:WHEN does the inmate recieve their "NEW CALCULATION sheet?" my LO was sentenced in early March this year & was sent 2 western 2weeks later, his outdate is still the same....who/what determines the EXACT outdate....I've know of many ex-inmates who were released 'months & even years earlier! then said outdate....And thats n'cluding day4day,County(Cook)time and (i suppose) good time also...this is confusing :wc13:

Cash,
Assuming he is eligible for the 6 months, he will get 90 days of it when he is in the system for thirty days and the rest when he is 18 months short. If he is 18 or under to go, he will get all 6 months at once. It could take a few weeks for the calc. sheet to get to him because they get busy and have alot of cal sheetes every week. He should have hot a calc sheet in Graham that showed no good time but a longer out date. They always do that and the dates are always wrong.

3 A L is the best level to be in. When he gets to 5 years to do he can put in for one of the minimums and possibly work release from there. He could also go to work camps. Unless he really needs treatment, Sheridan is not the way to go. If treatment is his choice, wait until he has less time to put in for Southwestern. Sheridan is a med joint and Southwestern is a minimum. Halfway houses are for the guys that need rehab or a pace to stay when they get out. A little advice on work release, there are alot of people that put in for it, so if he is denied, appeal the decision and do not get heartbroken. I just knew I was going to work release from East Moline, they had sent my son in law to work release from Hill and we were co defendants. I got denied. LOL. I think it is a lottery type deal. Other than that, good luck to you and your man. I hope it all works out for the best for you.

In my experience the DOC site, never shows the good time for a bit initially This always puts people in a panic.  I think it was 5 or 6 weeks before my sons was adjusted.
 I know someone that didn't have their out date correct from good time EARNED until a week before he left and he had been notified MANY months before that of the change.

rtippie,
Here's the thing, Were keep'n the faith  :wc2:that he'll b released sooner than his idoc posted outdate(2012)...As We feel he was unjustly convicted of this crime...basically its a matter of him having a'Known background;previous convictions..etc.. And the 'local hood' Chicago  cops" bogusly set out 2 get him.<ALL THIS & THEN SOME being a WHOLE NOTHER STORY ENTIRELY!!!...he's thinkin of filing a lawsuit..

we're thinkn..he got arrested 12-06..sentenced 12yrs. in 03-08...1/2 of 12= 6yrs..minus 15months he served in CROOK COUNTY jail :wc4:..that leaves4yrs.9months...Now,w/ good behavior& no tickets,requesting a transfer once he's eligible(1yr?),obtaining a job inside the facility & remaing in 3-A-L status...Is it possible that he could b released sooner than his posted outdate?2011, 2010 even?.....2012 just seems like 4ever .....thanx again

As far as release before his outdate, no it is not possible. He might be eligible for work release but he will still stay at a center. There is no early release for any reason in Illinois. Even if you are sick they do not let you out early. Only in EXTREMELY rare situations have I HEARD of it. Never actually seen it. Gov. Blago himself could have a heart attack infront of your guy, and your guy gives him CPR, the PRB are cold hearted people. Sorry but that is how they do business in Illinois.

Cashyc,
I wish I made the rules but until they let people with the same ideas I have run the place we are stuck with what we got. I apologize. Now is the time we should be pushing for legislation for early release of non violent offenders. As the prisons fill up.

To Cashyc:
In response to your comment about we should be trying to get some kind of legislation passed for early release I agree. I did start a petition for the Gov. to review some of inmates that should be released. This comes on the heels of the "Big Mistake" that Gov. Quinn said was made when some inmates were released at the end of 2009.  Some of those that were released did have charges like battery, domestic issues, dui's and more. Some have gone back to prison. But the thing of it is, I don't think that the system reviewed some of the inmates that really deserved to be set free. There is something that is not being done. I did set up a petition online for anyone who wants to sign it. If we all get together and let them know that we want some answers, maybe we will get some answers. You will have to Google IDOC and you will see the petition called Help IDOC inmates.

Since IDOC is over crowded it is hard to say how long an inmate will be in R&C.  IDOC states it can take up to 90 days.
There is no action better at creating insanity in a person than trying to control something you have no control over.

Only do whatever you are willing to pay the consequences for.

Does anyone know how to actually Transfer Coordinator Sandra Funk?  I have tried her personal extension posted in earlier threads (x2614), but it just rings a few times and then disconnects me without an answer.  And when I call the main office extension (x2603) they try to field my questions without connecting me to her, saying that they can help me instead.  Any information on an updated extension would really help.  
One last question...has anybody ever had any luck emailing her, or would it just get answered by someone else in the office?  
If anybody has had good luck talking to someone else in that office please let me know.  I just want to get in touch with someone who can answer some of my questions.



In my initial question, I meant "Does anyone know how to actually contact Transfer Coordinator Sandra Funk."  I figured that I would clarify since I left out the word "contact."

If you have tried calling and cannot get through on her extension and the main Springfield # is telling you they can handle it, my guess is, because of what is going on right now with IDOC and all these transfers, they are not letting any calls go through to her extension, but fielding questions to her through their operators.

The only information we have for her is from the state directory, not sure about her email address or what it is:

FUNK, SANDRA
Transfer Coor Off
1301 CONCORDIA CT ,BOX 19277 SPRINGFIELD IL 62794 − 9277
217−558−2200 EXT 2603

Thanks Mah.  I definitely think that you are right about the craziness that is going on in the transfer department right now.  Do you know of anyone else that handles/approves of transfers who might be good to talk to in that office besides her? 
Again, thanks for your quick response.  Your willingness to help is such a source of light for so many trying to navigate through these tough times.

You are welcome!

I think I would call that main # back, give them the message, whatever it is you want to ask her and go from there.  There is no one else that we know of here on IPT, that handles transfers.

  They will probably put through all the questions to her and she either replies OR gives them her response to reply back, good luck, I hope you get some answers in a reasonable amount of time!

Can an inmate be transfer out to another prison if they are in the middle of getting health care treatment? My husband is going throw the Hep. C treatment and they transfer him to another prison before he was done doing the treatment.
