Update :loved one was sentenced today
« on: October 28, 2013, 04:58:57 PM »
Hello it's me again. I decided to post an update. Today was my l/o plea hearing. He got sentenced to 11 years. So I know he will do 5 1/2. Plus he got 100 days credit toward his sentence for time at the county jail. And he has 3 years parole too. Now it's just a waiting game for him to get to receiving. I'm not sure how long it will take for him to get transferred. I heard around 30 days, but this other guy that got sentenced a week ago was just transferred. So, hopefully not too much longer. I want to get this receiving part over with so I can have my first real visit with him. I'll probably be posting more now, since all the court stuff is over with. I will definitely need support during this time. 5 years is a long time, but I know it could  have  been much worse. Cause the first offer on the table was 15 years. So, he kind of got lucky there. Hope to talk with you all soon, and hopefully make a few friends on here.  :wc71-1:

Welcome! My LO was sentence on a Monday and was transferred to Stateville on Thursday, he spent two weeks in R&C and then he was transferred to his parent facility. It's different for everyone but I hope the process moves quickly for you so you can visit him soon.

I had a quick question. I talked to my l/o yesterday, and he said his time won't actually start until he's out of receiving. Is that true. I know he gets credit for time spent in the county. And I know time doesn't count after sentencing. But, that sucks if he has to wait for his time to start another month or however long it will take. Kinda bummed over this.

Unless there are circumstances you haven't mentioned, all the time in NRC should count toward his sentence.

Oh ok. I was kinda surprised when he mentioned this lastnite on the phone. I always thought it counted too. I will let him know when I talk to him again.  Thanks for your quick reply. :)

Is he going to bootcamp? it so, then his time starts once he is in camp.

No he's not going to boot camp. Probably Graham. He's been in there two different times. His last time he was in there was in 2005. They kept him there for his sentence.

Prayers to you  Joy4archie. My son was sentenced yesterday to 4 years. We are waiting for the R&C part to begin, early as Friday he could be shipped out.
My daughter in law is with me and it is a painful situation, parent of spouse...especially during the holidays.
God bless and many prayers will be said for you and your family.

Thank you so much!! :) He had a sentence of 11 years, but will do a little over 5 years. Or almost 7 if he does his parole time inside. He was in the county jail for 3 months, and was sentenced a month ago. They finally shipped him out yesterday. That sucks that he had a whole month of dead time that didn't count toward his sentence. He's my fiance.

Why is that month not going to count? My fiancé was in Cook from June 4th until the middle of August and then in receiving until the end of August and all of that time is counting towards his time.

Oh wow I didn't know that. He had 100 days of good time in the coles county jail. Then I heard after the sentencing, his time won't count until he gets to receiving. I wish I knew for sure.

The time he spent in county jail AFTER sentencing but BEFORE transfer to IDOC may not count. For some, this is dead time. Hopefully he will be credited that time.
