 My son got  14 years consecutive.  What does this mean as jail time??  He is appealing for sure.  His lawyer had said he would get jail time and probation. The judge must have been really hot that day.  he sent up 2 other people that day for almost same amount of time.   All of us were in total shock.  Our lawyer said most definitely not prison time and boy was he wrong.  I cried for days, would not talk to anyone.  I still am in shock and numb.

Hbmom   yes it was harsh  way too harsh.  One day I will tell you but right now I dont want my son to be judged wrong.  It was not drugs or murder. 
I am glad you are online.   Too bad there isnt a "chat line" on this site.   
I really have to go to bed.  Went to bed last night at midnite  got up at 3  laid back down got up at 4.
did you read   my son's first postcard??

Will my L/O's sentencing be cut down if he is going to school while he is in there?

marissa_n_kyle,

Your loved can be granted extra good time off from classes and programs provided he qualifies.  There are some charges that don't qualify even if being served at 50%
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.

Thanks Ivanrs2.
I would ask my cousin all of these questions, but things have changed since he has been in prison.

Sex offenders do not get good time off for schooling or programs.

Thanks Becca, I don't have to worry about that though. My husband is not a sex offender.

Do inmates get credit for time served in Cook County prior to their trial and sentencing?  If so, can anyone direct me to that information.  Is there something in the Illinois Sentencing Guidelines that show this?  I really need to read information for those incarcerated in 1982-1983.

Yes, they are awarded one day for each spent in CCJ.  I knew someone that received four years of good time before being tried and convicted.  Any time spent after the arrest, awaiting trial and during the trial, provided they didn't make a bond, all count towards good time.  The time spent following the conviction, waiting for IDOC to pick them up is not counted, it's considererd down time.

Thanks Dazz.  I noticed my husband did not receive credit for the year he spent in Cook County and just wanted to be sure before he filed a motion.  Is there something in writing showing that this is law?

You'd have to contact the Cook County Sheriff's department probably.  It should've been put on his mittimus.  This is ordered by the judge technically...he has to award the good time to the defendant.  If you contact the Clerk's office you might be able to see the original sentencing order and see what's on it.

What was his original sentence and at what percentage rate?  Sometimes the information on the IDOC website is incorrect.  Someone will be able to help you with a little more info.

You haven't supplied enough information to figure out a sentence and it's length of time, good time, parole date....where's the rest of the information?

Josey, Dazzler will probalby need the sentence that was given and whether it is required that 50%, 85% or 100% of the time be served. 

As far as the good time credits, I believe but may get corrected, that there are many adjustments that could come into play depending on the type of charges.  You can see the bill passed by Quinn last week http://www.ilga.gov./legislation/fulltext.asp?GAID=10&SessionID=76&GA=96&DocTypeID=SB&DocNum=1013&LegID=41922&SpecSess=&Session=

it's a pretty complicated read though
