Title: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Forevermah on January 02, 2007, 07:53:00 PM
This is the Host Site Agreement which must be signed for inmates to parole to your location.

Wait a minute.  If I read that form right, there is a place to show that a sex offender parolee will not have unsupervised contact with minor children in the host house hold.  I thought that a SO parolee couldn't go to a place with minor children.  Period.  What am I missing here?

OMG........I just cannot believe the list of "rules" the IDOC wants someone to abide by for a parolee to live in your home.......no call waiting, call forwarding, or answering machines ??????? COME ON.....what day and age was this written in ? My phone service comes with all three, so does that mean I will have to NOT have phone service in my home? I use Mediacom, which supplies my cable, phone and internet ......... As for the other stuff, that's not a problem as I don't keep guns or am I in the habit of having drugs in  my home, unless they are prescribed to me. Is there a specified time period they have to live in your home, or can they live in their own place once they are sent home ???? My son and his fiance will be getting their own apt prior to their wedding in Sept. so I hope this isnt a problem for them! " SIGH"

JDsMom...if you are going to allow a parolee to live with you, you must follow the rules of the IDOC.  If a parolee wishes to move into his own apartment when he gets on his feet then his Parole Officer will undoubtedly approve his change of residence.  The phone restrictions are for those parolees that will be hooked up to a monitoring system...the ankle bracelet.  The parole department's equipment cannot be interferred with...it works by radio signal and the department randomly checks the ankle bracelet through phone signals.  If the calls cannot be delivered because another line is in use, or the calls are dropped by call waiting signals, he'll be reported away from the home without permission.  When my inmate paroled here and was on the monitor I had an additional basic line installed just for his monitor box.  This avoided any hassles with my other two phone lines that have all these features...it's about ten bucks a month.  I signed this same agreement and I didn't find it offensive at all....most of it is just common sense.  And it's easily complied with.  The PO is always respectful when visiting and usually calls in advance.  I don't think it's anything you need to worry about, unless you've got a loaded glock sitting on the kitchen table....LOL

Surf - there are many different types of sex offenses.  Some parolees are allowed to live in homes with children...especially their own children...if the crime didn't involve their own kids.  The provision for the host site agreement could also mean that any children coming to the home as a visitor would not be left alone with the parolee.

Thanks Dazzler for the info, I'll have to check to see if Mediacom can even offer just the basic phone, I don't even use the call forwarding, call waiting(i always manage to hang up on the other person anyway lol), and as for voice mail, well most people who call here know when I'm home and when I'm out , and they have my cell number, so hopefully I can get Mediacom to change my service to just basic , at least temporarily while he's here.

My son was on an ankle bracelet and they have wireless units that do not interfere with anything and you do not have to have a phone line.  I only had a cell phone at the time.

I recently drove a friend to Ina, Illinois to pick up her son after 15 years.  He is 30 now.  He has a SO rap if thats how they're being described now.  His mother secured him a small apartment in the city.  He is on a monitor.  Both his trash dumpsters and his mail box are down the stairs and outside.  He was not allowed to go to either when he first got out.  Nor was he allowed to be with his younger siblings even though his crime had nothing to do with children.  Like Potiphar's wife the drug addicted prostitute he was with screamed rape when her man walked in; the other two juveniles went down with him as well. 

Oh, and as for IDOC, I was reminded of the movie Mississippi Burning as I sat in the car and watched the guards glare with absolute hatred that a white man would drive a black woman to pick up her son.

bab, I guess there are different restrictions and devices throughout the state, can you imagine that? The IDOC is not consistent with anything.  Was this monitor he was on(wireless) in Illinois?


scotirish, you would not think that kind of hatred would still be going on, small minds I guess!
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Dazzler on April 01, 2007, 08:25:24 AM
I'm not sure I understand your question.  Are you referring to someone being a Host?  If so, a host site agreement must be signed between the owner of the home the parolee will live in...and obviously they'd know the person is on parole.  So I'm going to assume you mean a parolee that would be renting an apartment or room from a private owner...and for that answer I'm not sure.  If a lease is required that asks about parole he would have to answer truthfully.  Because parolees are required to sign an agreement with the DOC that the parole department or the IDOC may enter the home, without notice, at any time, it might be hard to hide.  Parole officers sometimes visit frequently shortly after release and usually drive unmarked "state" cars....which are pretty obvious.  If you're talking about a larger apartment complex it would probably not be noticeable.  However, if he's required to fill out an application with a credit check or background check it might turn up.  It's kind of a difficult decision to avoid the subject because I do know that some parolees have been denied residence because of their prison record.  Usually, most landlords do not want to rent to 'sex offenders'.  However, I've known others who have had no problem renting as long as they pay their rent and are employed.  Maybe someone from the Springfield area will know of some places that are friendly.  This is just another example on the lact of help provided to paroling inmates in Illinois.  There are so few services available to those leaving prison.  Parole officers aren't very helpful either.

QUESTION:   I heard that a parolee does not have to be on the lease , but he/she does have to report where they are living at all times to their PO...........so I was wondering if that information is correct ????? Our son's fiance is renting her parents home, there is no lease, and her parents fully support JD .......it is a single family home, with no parks, schools, daycare facilities for several blocks .So her parents would need to sign the HOst agreement for him to live there is what I am understanding???? We are his second choice, but he prefers to live in Peoria since we live in such a small rural town 25 miles from Bloomington, and he'll have to rely on his fiance to get to and from work for awhile. Still no letter/calls from anyone about his parole.......64 days and counting......I was told I could call Field Services at Pinkneyville and they would give me any info I needed, as well as confirm I am willing to be a Host.....I'm going to call there tomorrow and find out!
Night all, I'm exhausted, been in the pool all day with my 8 yr old grandson who's visiting for three weeks whewwwwwww I am pooped!

Post by: Forevermah on June 12, 2007, 05:56:01 AM
Rett, I think it would have to be her parents OR maybe her, to sign the host site agreement, if she is the one living there? it's their call on this one.  They will have to prepare the house, taking out any contraband(weapons of any kind).  You are right he does not have to be on  the lease and yes, they have to call in a couple times a month and let them know where they are living, where they are working, the names of the people in the house and a few other things, this is all besides the PO coming and visiting them once a month or so.

 Also, they say in the host site agreement that a separate phone line is needed, solely dedicated to his anklet, if he is on one, without call waiting or anything, so that it can connect to this anklet whenever they call.  This all depends on the PO that comes out to have them sign this agreement. We were told we could use our normal line, but you must ALWAYS click over  if you have call waiting to be sure who is calling.

If your son has already put in his paperwork for his two choices, then it's just a waiting game. They can come out, depending on when the prison gets his paperwork out, anywhere from 6 months to 2 weeks before his release.  If the prison has already passed on his paperwork to the county Parole Office, then it's them who decides when they will be out.

Good Luck today, hope you get some answers.

I think it would be her name on the host agreement.  The parents are the owner of the property she is renting. She will be the one supporting him.   Unless they live there also?

I got a call about a month ago from the field services person (i think) asking if i agreed to have M paroled to my house.  I agreed -on the phone - and he received the notice there that it had been approved... I never filled out an agreement, though.  Do I need to contact them to make sure everything is okay??  He isnt scheduled for release until Sept 3rd, but since that is Labor Day we have assumed that he will be out on August 31...

Got a silly question.......I think LOL When the PO came out last week, he looked over the place, said everything looked good except I needed to pack up all the kids clothes and toys that I keep here for when the grandkids are visiting, and I needed to password protect my computer. Then he had the host site agreement papers, and read them over to me and told me what to expect, and I read and initialed and signed the HSA........does that mean I'm approved ???????? Do I need to contact the po to let him know I've got all of that done? It's Tazewell County Parole, I think out of Pekin.

Rett, we did the same, signed it and they said OK and that was it.  They have never came back to check or called after we signed the agreement, just the day or day after he came home, his PO came by and gave him his instructions.

Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: JDsMom on June 26, 2007, 02:09:22 PM
Thanks Mah! Well I'm feeling a bit more at ease . I know when they visited his fiance's, they told her when they left they had to deny her place as a host site due to the baby being there, dogs in the house ..... The PO also told me when he was here, that I would not need to cancel all my features on my home phone, so maybe he's going to be on one of those newfangled EMD's!  His PO also said he would make a home visit once a month, and he would do what he could to help JD to transition. God Bless him! It's getting ready to storm here , so I'm gonna go turn on the air and settle in with a good book!

Yes, his PO comes once per month and he calls in twice per month, they ask alot of questions, his name, our names, his employers info, all kinds of things.   He was told though that if he complies and behaves, no arrests, he may be released from parole early! 1/2 the time!  Yippe!

I have witnessed several people lately who have had their host sites approved and were told everything was fine. They got released and within 24hours were picked back up for some kind of "technicallity" and put back through the system all over again. Can anyone tell me how to make sure this doesn't happen? I would think if they approve the site and actually release the inmate then all the technical stuff should have already been taken care of. Am I missing something?

They don't always call before they come out.  (you can read all about my story of the PO showing up with me in my underwear and the dog peeing on him)  And for us, he just went over the checklist of the host agreement.  I never actually signed it.  I guess they all do it their own way.

ok this is how screwy the idoc is. My man put in my addy and the po called my mothers home to talk to me and said when I get moved fully to call her and leave a message. I did and let her know and she showed up on a sunday with the host agreement. She told me how to get around the call waiting and stuff but she didn't know if my dsl would interfere or the fact that my power meter is in the house and on a radio frequency would interfere but she said to ask the tech when he comes to install the ed bracelet. The po never even looked over the house or anything, she just stood in the living room while I signed the host agreement and said that I would be approved.

She verified address, etc. asked a few questions & that was it. I never signed anything.

Post by: swallin on April 22, 2008, 11:51:24 AM
Greetings, if I'm in the wrong place for the following, I apologize.  My question is about host site/parole issues.  our son has just gone to Western CC with a sentence of 2 yrs on a drug possession charge and a tentaive release date of 1/09 listed.  He apparently can be eligible for parole immediately but has a number of unusual issues that complicate release including:

He has had a kidney transplant and has other medical risks.
We, his family, live in Arizona and he has been told that the host agreement can take up to six months or more if he files to have us as his placement.
He would like to stay in Illinois initially in order to take care of medical issues - anti-rejection drugs, doctors, etc. as Arizona is very backward and they have let him go without these things for weeks at a time which could easily kill him.
He has no ID, no street clothes, etc. with him as he was sent to Illinois after being picked up in Arizona. 
 
Ideally, I think he would like to be released to Illinois and then set up transfer to AZ for probation while he is getting medical issues taken care of in Illinois.  We can help to some extent, but it seems pretty overwhelming from this distance.  Is this possible and what would be his options for an approved home in Illinois?

thanks, 
Salley (the mom)

Post by: Dazzler on April 22, 2008, 03:51:00 PM
I'm assuming you are talking about an eventual Interstate Compact Agreement?  This is the parole process for an Illinois inmate to return to his home state and have that state manage his parole. 

If your son intends to stay in Illinois for his parole, which is probably only one year, there are some options available to him, although limited.  He can obtain an apartment or try to find a room in a private home, share housing with someone, stay in a hotel.  There are YMCA's available and some re-entry housing, usually through a faith-based group.  I think your son should start the interstate compact agreement as soon as possible.  You could probably get involved as his mother and keep after them to complete it.  It can be a long process so he must stay on top of it with his counselor. 

I believe you could send clothing for him to wear upon release.  He should also request a temporary IDOC identification card when he's paroled.  He will need this to obtain his SS card if he's lost it, a driver's license, etc.  It's good for one month after parole.  If it's possible for you to help in the housing search that would be a plus.  He must have a place to parole to or he'll be held until the end of his sentence..and in SEG besides.  If he's coming to the Chicago area near the major University Hospitals there are many motels that offer monthly rates to long term residents.  We have some re-entry information available on the forum for you to check into.  His counselor might be able to offer more information.  However, the IDOC is very lacking in support after parole.  He will need to find employment also to support himself upon release, unless you are able to provide for his needs while he's still in Illinois.  If you have more questions, I will try to help.  Maybe others who have gone through this will be of assistance also.

thanks to Dazzler & SMD for info regarding son's release options.  I'm sure there will be more questions, but I will spend some time reading as many relevant threads as possible to see if the answer is already out there before I check in again....... but it is really a relief to know there is a network of support to start to piece things together from here.

Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Dazzler on June 01, 2009, 01:56:38 PM
Usually the PO will speak to the managers about allowing a parolee to live on any publically funded housing property.  I assume Northern Illinois is publically funded since it's a state university.  Secondly, don't you get a list of rules when you move onto this property?  And finally, I think it would be a big liability on the university's part to allow a non-student, in a non-traditional relationship to live on a college on parole.  I don't know what your boyfriend is incarcerated for but the state has an obligation to protect its students and insure their security.  I'm going to say an emphatic "NO" to your question....but then again, nothing this state does surprises me....if I were a parent and my kids were on a campus with convicted felons residing with their girlfriends I'd have a big problem with it....no offense.

I'm afraid you aren't going to be able to slide this past everyone....

What do you mean by home confinement?  Once he's sentenced to IDOC there is no such thing.  If you mean when will he be released for parole that's different.  Not everyone wears an electronic ankle bracelet upon release either. You can get the phone just before he's released if he'll be on a monitor.  You don't say what his crime is so I don't know if it's 50 or 85% good time.  I'm going to assume that it's only 50% which puts him home in one year, minus any good time he had in county and any additional good time for programs or schooling.

Now I'm moving to a big apartment complex in Carol Stream,IL but I don't have section 8 or anything. My l/O filled out his paperwork for parole plans. His name is not going to be on the lease or anything just me and my son. Why would they need to talk to the manager. My aunt who lives there didn't put her husband on her paper work and he is on parole. Actually the leasing agent told her not to because they do run a background check. They didn't have any problems with his parole officer and no one talked to the Manager of the property. Is this standard practice, because in that case no one will be parole to an apartment.

My husband already sent in his 2 parole addresses and didn't use mine because he didn't want the apartment complex to know he was living there.  He is and will not be on our lease and it is a large complex so I really don't think it will be a problem for him to live there without their knowledge.  I have a couple of questions...First, do they contact the apartment management or just the person on the lease.  I have no problem with him living with us and there are absolutely no contraband there at all.  Second, can he change the 2nd address on his parole places because he only put his grandmother on there 2nd because he didn't think there would be a problem with him living with his parents, which is really close to us anyway so he would stay there a few days a week and at our house a few as well.  His dad has an FOID card and has guns in the house, all locked inside a safe that is bolted to the floor and wall and his dad is the only one who has the combination.  Also, the room that the safe is in is always locked and there is an alarm on it.  My husband wouldn't be allowed in the upstairs where this room is anyway.  Do you think they would approve the parole to his parents with these circumstances?  Is there a way for him to change his 2nd choice for parole location?  We really want him to come home and live with us instead of a halfway house or so far away that he would really have to stay there all week (his grandmother's house is 2 hours away).  It is going to be a while before we have to deal with this but would like to know what our options are since he has already turned in his 2 possible locations.  Thanks!

A couple of things - he can't split time between two residences on parole.  If he paroles to a location, he better be at that location whenever the parole office visits, or he could be violated.  Second, there can't be any weapons at the parole location, no matter how "locked down" they are.  I can't answer your question about issues with your apartment complex, but I'm sure someone will be along who can.

I am not positive but I thought that the PO got in touch with the Landlord to verify it was ok for a parolee to come there. I could be wrong though. Someone will correct me

It depends on the PO.  Any public housing does not permit parolees.  And no, he can't go to his parents if there are guns on the premises....they must all be removed and stored off site.

More than likely he'll be sent home and an agent will come within 72 hours.  However, the IDOC will send a technician to set up the monitor probably the same night he's home.  My inmate was visited at midnight to install the phone box and ankle monitor.

I have a question about the Host Site Agreement that's posted.  After reading thru it I notice that the majority of points refer to "electronic monitoring".  Is this particular agreement specifically geared toward a parolee being released and electronically monitored???  Is there another host site agreement for a parolee moving home without the electronic monitoring, or is this 2007 agreement just the standard for everyone?  My son will be paroled in April 2011 and has been asked to submit his release address and phone information.  He's wondering if and when he will hear anything further.  I'm wondering if and when I will hear anything further.  We haven't dealt with the "parole" scenario for 10-12 years.  It seems to have been really overhauled since then.  At that time a parolee just got picked up, brought home, and then reported to a PO in downtown Joliet 1x monthly or as designated by the PO.  No agreements were signed, no home visits were made.  I don't even believe there is a Parole Office in Joliet any longer.  I've tried to look through the site for general information, but find more personalized instances rather than just FAQ's.  Thanks for anything you can tell me.
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Dazzler on August 30, 2010, 09:00:12 AM
The host site agreement is for everyone.  Not all points are required for all parolees.  It depends on the PO.  Parole policies have changed.  Most POs visit their parolees at their homes.  After your son submits his parole site request you will get a letter asking if you approve.  You may or may not get that letter right away.  It depends on how efficient that particular prison's field services department is.   I believe the parole office is still in Aurora.  It's been there for many, many years.  But most don't report to an office...the PO's work in the field and pop in whenever they feel like it.  Many parolees are released on the monitor, at least for the first few months to make sure they enroll in the required programs, etc.  You've got a long time to go  so I wouldn't worry too much about it until about February or March.
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: hopefulmom on August 30, 2010, 11:07:50 AM
Thanks so much for posting so quicky.  Nothing's been said about releasing him on a monitor.  I know my son would be the first one surprised by that development.  I really believe he's under the impression all he has to do is get released and wait for someone to visit initially (within 72 hours??). Then he can go out to find a job.  His ex will be after him for child support immediately and want to have a court date set to have the $ amount assessed I know that.  We've been supporting our grandson while our son's been incarcerated.  His divorce and custody determinations went through after he was sent away and as such the judge refused his ex's request to make him responsible for any back child support assessed while he was gone.  So from what you've advised - we might not even hear anything until February or March......  Does that include approval of the site host as well???
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Dazzler on August 30, 2010, 01:29:25 PM
YEP.  Usually an agent will come to your home shortly before your son's release and check the house and ask you to sign the host site agreement.  There are certain stipulations on your part also....no guns in the house, no dangerous dogs, some dogs must be microchipped.  It's still a long way off to worry about it now.  He may very well be put on the monitor...that's the decision of the PRB when they give him his release papers.  He might be required to take programs for substance abuse, anger management, etc. also.  They give the parolees certain hours off the monitor while looking for a job/working.

I'm a bit worried: My l/o comes home in Nov. of this year and the Host Site Agreement paper that is shown on this topic is not the same one I got back in Feb. Are there two different forms? The one I received by mail says that my l/o indicated that I am willing to provide a place for him to live upon his release. They ask my name, address, phone number, etc., and if I approve or deny. As soon as I got this letter I called field services and gave my approval. That was it. Is this different than the HSA?
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Dazzler on September 25, 2010, 11:06:54 AM
Yes, it's a preliminary form sent in advance of their release.  It's not a Host Site Agreement and  I doubt it was labeled that.  It was a questionnaire not an agreement.  Agreements must be signed with a parole officer.  They won't be sent throught the mail. You'll sign it when the parole officer makes the advance visit to ispect your home.

When I called and asked about this agreement the PO office said I did not need to complete any paperwork for them.  I asked if they are going to come do an advance visit he said no.  He said the only thing we may have to do is get a microchip for our dog, but maybe not if they never see the dog.  He also said that because of my husbands class he may never even see the parole board before he gets released.  Does this happen to anyone else or am I the only one?  Everything about this experience has been different for me.

I am not sure why it is different for me.  My husband was sentenced to 18 months for Agg DUI/Revoked.  His outdate was listed as 1/28/11.  He has gotten into the GED class and takes the test on Nov 15.  With the 45 days for the class and the 60 days for passing the test he would be eligible to get out on 10/15/10, but he can't take the test until Nov 15.  The PO that I talked to said that they won't even begin seeing the Jan release offenders until Nov some time.  He told me we will get most of the instructions when they come see him within 72 hrs of release.  He said he did not see anything that showed we would have an electronic monitor, just some substance abuse classes once he gets out.  Maybe I don't have to fill out the form because he owns the house with me?  I don't know.  There doesn't seem to be anything that is "normal" in the IDOC.

About appearing before the parole board... my husband was told he doesn't have to either and he still has a few months to go, but he was told they don't put you before the parole board if you haven't been in there for a parole violation.  I guess we were told wrong if what Dazz is saying is true.  We are under the assumption that he will not go before a parole board as my husband has also mentioned that many guys in there do get out on parole without ever seeing the parole board as well.  Either way, as long as he comes home I don't care. 
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: lvanrs2 on September 29, 2010, 07:14:40 AM
I am going out on a limb here but Dazzler may be referring to the paperwork itself.  The parole board will determine what if any restirctions are given to the parolee.  After they have made their recommendations the PO can add extra restrictions if he feels it is necesaary.  I didn't see the partole board when I left Decatur either but my paperwork was submitted to the PRB for review.  I had no restrictions but alot of imates are required to get some sort of outpatient treatment for alcohol, drugs, sex offender classes, etc.  Parole violators will see the parole board for the violation they received and new restrictions could be added upon their release.

Looking for clarification.....

For the initial 72 hours (or when the PO comes).... is the inmate required to stay in the residence until the initial visit?
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: lvanrs2 on September 29, 2010, 11:42:15 AM
Yes!!  When an inmate is released he/she is given a specific amount of time to get home, they must call the 800 number and wait until the PO has come out.  If they leave before the initial visit a violation will occur.

Do you have family/friends  that can store them for you, until he is done with parole?  They will ask about this and if you tell them you can't get rid of them, he cannot parole to your home.  You must get them off your property before he gets out.

When my son is paroled, he has a job opportunity that is almost 3 hours commute from our home.  He wants to move into an apartment close to where he works.  Will the PO allow that?  Once we know his parole date, do we need to get an apartment first so that he has a place or does he have to stay at our home until the end of his parole? 
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Marks_guy on December 13, 2010, 09:20:57 PM
Parolees are allowed to move, with the permission of the PO. Depending on the amount of time before he gets out, you have options on how to handle this. If you are willing to get the apartment all set up for your son, you can do that and he can list it as his parole site. Or he can parole to your home and then ask to move to a new place at a later date.

Your inmate will have to give your address once you get it and from there the IDOC would send out a host site agreement to you for your signature allowing him to parole there.  They then could send someone out to check the place out before they approve it, a PO.  You don't have to put him on the lease, but you'd better be sure, wherever you rent, that they would allow a parolee to be there.

This is the way it usually works, but just so you know, some PO's don't come out until after the inmates are released, nothing is every 100% consistent with the IDOC.

Get your place first, one that will allow him to be there and then you can give him the information and see how it plays out.

I know this is probably answered somewhere, but after jumping from post to post, I decided just to ask. D put in my residence as his parole site, he has been within the IDOC since the beginning of February 2010 starting at Graham R&C, then Vienna and currently at Graham. He has made sure each new counselor has his parole plan. With completed contracts, he should be released in a little over 8 months. I have not heard, nor received anything regarding his parole, such as the Host Site Agreement. He has asked his counselor about wether or not anything's been done/turned in/approved on a few different occassions over the last couple months, and all she says is either its pending or it's still in the works. He said maybe I should call and check to make sure there isn't a problem. I think that's jumping the gun a bit, but wanted to check here. I've read where some get the agreement not long after the inmate is incarcerated, but also where some don't get it till closer to the outdate. I wanted to see if there was a norm, or if I should be checking up on it? Thanks in advance for any replies.
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: Forevermah on February 08, 2011, 01:47:14 PM
If he has 8 months to go, you have plenty time to receive and sign the HSA. Some prisons send them out earlier than others, some never send them out, a PO brings it to you to sign, it all depends on the policy at Graham.  As long as he has put you down for his parole site, at some point someone will be in touch or a HSA will come in the mail for you to sign and return.  Just know, that if it comes in the next month, this does NOT mean he is getting out any earlier, too many have gotten their hopes up for an earlier release because the HSA was signed up to a year earlier and it just doesn't happen.

Don't count on MGT comng back, if it does, it will be a bonus to you, that's what we have been telling everyone for over a year now!

Not sure if you are familiar with the dog law for felons, but you might want to check it out:



Here's the statute relating to the "Dog Law"...it became effective Jan. 1, 2007


(720 ILCS 5/12‑36)
    Sec. 12‑36. Possession of certain dogs by felons prohibited.
    (a) For a period of 10 years commencing upon the release of a person from incarceration, it is unlawful for a person convicted of a forcible felony, a felony violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act, a felony violation of Article 24 of the Criminal Code of 1961, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Cannabis Control Act, or a felony violation of Class 2 or higher of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, to knowingly own, possess, have custody of, or reside in a residence with, either:
        (1) an unspayed or unneutered dog or puppy older than
     12 weeks of age; or
 
        (2) irrespective of whether the dog has been spayed
     or neutered, any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.
 
    (b) Any dog owned, possessed by, or in the custody of a person convicted of a felony, as described in subsection (a), must be microchipped for permanent identification.
    (c) Sentence. A person who violates this Section is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
    (d) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this Section that the dog in question is neutered or spayed, or that the dog in question was neutered or spayed within 7 days of the defendant being charged with a violation of this Section. Medical records from, or the certificate of, a doctor of veterinary medicine licensed to practice in the State of Illinois who has personally examined or operated upon the dog, unambiguously indicating whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered, shall be prima facie true and correct, and shall be sufficient evidence of whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered. This subsection (d) is not applicable to any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.

Mina~ here at the host site agreement... read some of the information it will help a lot.. Does you landlord have any problems with having a felon living there? There is an agreement you will need to sign when they come... My experience was after the parole agent approved our home, then he went to the PRB (Prison Review Board) to get his guideline which is depended on crime and the mittimus. Also the will go to Pre-Start aka parole school as some inmates call it. There has been those who home was approved after that got there, all sort of thing. Remember IDOC does not plan on your time table. So if you need any help along the way post some one will help, or point you in the right direction. Also read all the latest threads on the subject. You can pm me if I can help. Please read how some got violated and all of the parole related topic it will equip you with the tools you need to get the job done. I wish you the best.

Past policies of IDOC were to put a convicted murderer on the sex offenders list to keep them away from children.  They've changed that so they have their own database but as far as I know they aren't allowed to parole to a home with small children that aren't their own....maybe things have changed and maybe someone has direct experience with this...I'm sure it's up to the PO depending on the nature and particulars of the case.  Do you feel completely comfortable having an ex-murderer around your children?  Their safety has to be absolutely first in your mind...Did he ask you to sign the paperwork today?

I'm so glad I read the host site agreement bc now I know exactly what's expected. And it's not so scary at all. My B's on the SO list and we were worried he wouldn't be able to see our daughter at all in the 2 years he's gotta spend on parole. So does this mean that as long as I'm present, I can bring her over from my mom's house to spend time with us? Also Dazz, I've never received any papers at all from him or his facility regarding parole. He did mention he's going to track 1 or something like that...is it the same as prestart? IDK, he's done this before, he should know what he's doing.

Yes, it's the same as pre-start class.  I'm not sure about the visiting with your daughter...as each case seems to be dependent on the PO.  Klo, our member, wasn't allowed to have her children see their father the entire parole...it was almost cruel.  His SO had nothing to do with small children, especially his own little boys.  I hope your loved one has a more reasonable PO.

Great...cuz he kinda told me he bailed on those classes. Omg, they're still gonna let him out right? Yes, it is cruel...esp since his SO also had nothing to do with children and this happened 12 years ago...waaay before we even met. Uggh, I just want this all to be over an done with already. We're both getting a little too tired of the prison game. Thanks for all the info Dazz!  :wc30:

I called field services and they told me that the home site we gave them is under investigation. Do you know how much longer does it take a po to call you because my l/o is in NRC at Stateville and he was there on a violation but they decided to not violate him and release him but he has to find another home site. We tried a few addresses but due to him being a SO its been very hard and stressful on his mom and I. Can someone tell me please normally how long it takes for a PO to call you to see home site since its saying under investigation field service said. Thank You so much.

No one can really tell you how long this will take, it all depends on the PO and how quickly they do their checking. 

Hopefully everything goes through with this new location and he can be released ASAP, would be a nice new year for him and you!  Best to you both!

Hello,
I just received the PO Host Site Agreement letter today, I have many questions regarding it. But rather than burdening you with them, can you direct me to where I can read all the rules & regulation for it, please. I have somewhat an idea of it from reading the other posts, but I want to be very clear on it.
I don't understand why IDOC seems to be with holding specific rules & regulations like this, from us out here. But if I have spoke out of place, in saying that, PLZ forgive me... Is there website, to go to that has all the rules & regulations regarding the IDOC, besides the IDOC? It just seems to me, that it takes an act of congress dealing with the IDOC...

However, IPT, :wc6:  U have been & are such a great blessing!!! I thank you so very much for EVERYTHING you do & the COMPASSION you give, to the lost ones, like me!!!

I think the host site agreement lists all the rules that would apply to your inmate and you have to check them that you agree and sign it and send it back..  Try calling field services at the prison or if a PO contacts you, you can always ask them the questions you might have.  There is no place on the IDOC website that explains it all.

If it was your (both of you) house to begin with, there is no need for the HSA. Unless there is some reason he would not be allowed back there (domestic abuse charge, restraining order, SO restriction, or you denying him home), there is no reason to worry.

His name isn't on the mortgage (only mine is) but this is where he lived since we got married (3 months before he got locked up).  There is no other reason why he would have any other restrictions.

My man is going to be released from prison is early July in Illinois. I'm stressing really hard right now about his parole, and if his agent will talk to the landlord about his crimes that he's done 15 1/2 years for (murder & robbery) Since its a violent crime will the parole agent inform the landlord?? Or is it confidential?? I just signed for an apartment in Illinois, I live in Michigan right now, and never had a parolee to do this with.
I'm seriously stressed thinking about all this and not sure who to ask or what to do and don't want to stress my man cause he's done 15 years and finally getting released...
Please Help!! Will the Parole Agent notify the landlord or want to talk to him to get his ok? Or only talk to me and get my consent? Then if something goes wrong will I be held responsible since I signed for him to live with me?? If anyone can answer my questions or give me some Illinois (Chicago) Parole Info I'd be forever thankful.

Hi, welcome to IPT .... It would depend on your lease and if you would have to disclose who is going to live there along with you and if they ask if that person is on parole.    As far as just living with you, the parole department would probably have you sign the Host Site Agreement since this is not his home!

Also, you didn't go into detail about his conviction, but you might want to check out the new Murderer and Violent Crimes and Youth Registry that went to effect this year and see if he qualifies.  Here is the frequently asked questions page link:

http://www.isp.state.il.us/cmvo/cmvofaq.cfm?CFID=72002554&CFTOKEN=f9bea54df08b0a12-8E94788F-D865-08D9-811255C00473EE66&jsessionid=ec3057b38be359c9d4ac138614582e57381d


If he does qualify to register for this list, you might have other restrictions he would have to follow in regards to housing.

Good Luck to you, hoping you get it all put in place for him to come home!

Post by: bone809 on May 27, 2012, 10:07:10 PM
If your lease prohibits felons from residing on the property and your landlord finds out he is there, you both could be evicted and then the parolee will be without a host site which could violate his conditions. It is better not to try and fly one under the radar but instead just be honest. Your landlord and neighbors are probably going to figure it out anyway when they see an agent (or several agents at times) show up at your door on a regular basis. These of course are just suggestions.

How much time does IDOC need to approve a place? We got my sis's apt, the tenant will be vacating on June 24th so anytime after the 25th the po is welcome to stop by. My B gets out July 6th, that gives us about a week or so. Is that enough time for everything to get processed? My B can give them the address tomorrow already to start processing, mentioning that I won't be there till the 25th. We got 5 weeks left to go, I'm more anxious, nervous, and scared than when I was going into labor!  :wc35:

You don't have to buy or get the anklet, the IDOC will supply that, but if he is on the regular monitor when he gets out, you will have to have a landline phone for it to connect with.  If you already have a home phone (Landline) you don't have to do anything else, they will do the rest!
Title: Re: Host Site Agreement for Parole
Post by: meangene on June 10, 2012, 11:32:10 AM
My information may not be current.  When my son was put on an ankle monitor, he was home two days and told not to leave the house until his PO came to our house.  this was after I went to the prison and picked him up.  He had a few hours to get home and make the call to Springfield on our land line.  Two days later the PO came to the house to see where he lived and where he slept.  Another man from the Sheriff's office came in with a box to fit the monitor and align it with the telephone and tell him how to use it and take a shower etc.  We paid nothing, but as i said this was a few years ago.  When M came home the last time, no one came to the house as he was assigned to TASC and he went in on a regular basis to see his counselor and do a urine test.  We never saw anyone at the house.  That was 2 years ago.

Don't be too stressed over this.  Many years ago I worked for an agency who went into homes for DHS.  I know people were cautious but if you are worried you send out non verbal messages that a visitor picks up on and they may sense something is wrong when in fact everything is o.k.  They do not take a lot of time in a visit, especially now that they will have so many more on parole, they just show up and mainly ask for the Urine sample which is an immediate pass or fail test.  Most conversations are about jobs and job searches, fine payments, and rumors they picked up while visiting other parolees in the area.  

My family has not learned to live without drugs and their addictions put them back in over and over again.  I hate most that we close hospitals and treatment centers and build more jails, prisons, and cells.

Ok...i know we still have 4ish months left, and i have been curious about this parole thing. It appears that many of you are getting letters and having visits from PO's to have your site approved. My man was given paperwork over a year ago for him to give a parole site (because we thought he was going to get work release) and he filled it all out and recieved a memo that the site was approved? ie. My home has been documented as "approved" since last year. I never got any letters, no phone call or no visit. So i called the records dept at his facility to make sure they had the right phone number etc. everything is correct and the lady from records department confirmed that "yes, my address has been approved" Is this something out of the ordinary????

Has a PO come out to your home yet?  IF they come out before, he may/may not have you sign the agreement.  If he doesn't come out until your LO gets out, he may have it then.   

 Don't worry at some point, if this is not your LO's home, but yours, you probably will have to sign something giving your permission for him to parole there.

Its seems he could have put sesame street down for an address if he wanted. They never verified anything. Just seems odd to me. And then i have to wonder too, how & when will i know if i have to have a phone put in. He's not sure, but he talked to a counselor way back that said he would probably have 30 days EHM. He's been trying to see a counselor since Feburary to get an idea of what all we have to do. But HIS counselor never called him in even after i called Springfield about it, and they sent her a email to call him in. Still nothing. I know we still have 4 months, and its not an emergency YET. LOL...but still feel i need to know SOMETHING.

You know something, apparently it's approved    :wc35:

He will be going to pre-start (parole classes) and will find out his parole rules.  If he will be on EHM, you will know in enough time before he gets out for you to get the hookup for his anklet .. there is plenty of time for that and plenty of time to check your place out in 4 months.  Just be sure you have nothing there, IE contraband (guns etc) that could get it denied.

 Did he live there before he went in?     Hang in there, it will all get done!

Hi,  My son was let out of prison in June.  They new he would be homeless and they sent him to a PADS (shelter) to stay the first night and in the morning to meet with his parole officer(this is in Dupage County).  He cont'd to be homeless for 1 1/2 months, meeting with his parole officer weekly to start then he found a job and he only needed to see her every 2wks.  He was able to rent a room in a house, parole officer had to change then.  Parole officer came to his residence and said because his room was not an apartment (it was with a shared bathroom) he(the parole officer) would have to speak with the landlord and have him sign some papers, I guess a host site agreement.  Well first off my son was homeless & lucky enough to find a room in a basement of a respected citizen and business owner, secondly my son did not tell the landlord that he is a convicted felon and on parole(duh!) and I would not have either.  So now my son is afraid to tell the landlord for then he will be most likely homeless again and if not,  once the parole officer talks to the land lord and ask him to sign a host site agreement and search the landlords house that will be the straw that broke the camels back. Also the landlord has a dog that is large and not fixed.  My son never sees the dog as the dog is upstairs and he resides in the basement.  So dilemna is if he has no home he will be unable to shower for work everyday, he will not get much sleep and all the progress he has made is lost.  I understand these are the rules and he made the decisions that got him here ..... I am just so angry right now I can spit nails.  Any suggestions?
Thank You for any responses.

My friend is projected to come home on Parole Dec 4, 2012.  So far I spoke to the parole agent and was told to remove computers, digital phone, etc.  I called the field services as soon as I did.  This agent is so hard to get a hold of and he does not respond.  Today is sunday, December 2nd.  I still have not heard anything.  My host site was preapproved on line and the next step further was for them to inspect my home.  This was all decided that he stay at my home in September and it has been a real hassle.

Is there a chance now if the Parole Agent does not come here before the 4th that he may have to stay there one more year?

She told the PO she would get the dog fixed, and has set up a vet appt this month for the dog. What is the next step? Does she call PO and then they change their mind and accept the parole site? He is calling tonight and the letters we have received from him sound kind of panic-y. He just wants to make sure he can go home and we want to follow all of the rules! Any advice is welcome! Thanks

Once she has the proof that the dog was fixed, she could call Field Services at the prison and let them know.  They will let her know what to do next.

Parole officer came out today and approved the house. Has anyone received copies of the paperwork they signed. Should I call the 800 number and ask for them. I would like to refresh my memory on what I exactly signed. It was about 4 pages.

Sooo the Agent came out. Didn't ask to see my house, didn't ask for proof of my dogs shots. I had to sign a form though.  I offered my paperwork on my dogs he said it was fine.  We chit chatted for a while not even about my husband, aside from him asking if I had spoke to him recently and then saying it doesn't look like he would be on house arrest.  He was leaving and I asked him if he would contact me to let me know if my residence was approved he said oh it is approved im going to do it right now. :wc7: It went waaayyyy to easy!

I had a very similar experience! My LO's PO came out last week after rescheduling with me twice.. I was incredibly nervous, cleaned the house for 2 days straight. Top to bottom! She came, and didn't move out of my doorway.. complimented me on my wall hangings, and cleanliness.. I signed the paper, and she said that she too said immediately that I was approved, and was going to enter all the information that day. I was sweating bullets for days before she came, and it was so easy!! Congratulations to you and your LO as well, I know it is a wonderful feeling.. we are getting closer and closer every day!!  :wc7:

Anytime before they get out, some don't come till after they are out.  The inmate cannot move from the house until that PO gets there, or they will be violated, this is very important. 

Some approvals are done over the phone also.

My experience when my l/o was released from boot camp 9/13 was that parole officer came 1 week before he was discharged. All he was interested in was for me to sign the form (maybe because I was the mom). I have another friend whose boyfriend was discharged the parole agent came to house a week before looked in her fridge & checked out the place? I'm not sure if that's normal? Once my l/o was discharged from the prison we were given so many hours to get home & for him to call the 800# telling IDOC he was home. Then you wait for them to arrive. I believe Mah has it somewhere & I do recall parole officers have up to 72 hours to get to your parole place. This was a very exciting time for me! Good luck

He will not be able to parole to your home if there is no contact.. I am really surprised you got that letter.

No, but if you have a lease and there is anything in the lease about having a parole there you need to know.  Also, it's always best, because of the PO officers coming while on parole that the landlord knows.

That is correct, the PO will give him any new/more instructions.  Whatever he does, he cannot move from the house until that PO gets there.  Cannot tell you when, most are there within 72 hours.

The best to him on his parole!  Getting along with the PO is his first big step !

You cannot have guns on the premises/in house, when someone paroles to your home, it would all have to be moved until the person is off parole.

I don't think they'll call the landlord, but if the PO comes on regular visits and the landlord is around and sees this and he wasn't informed you may have problems, it's always best to be on the up and up.  They rejecting can depend on the inmate and his conviction.  Some dog issues can arrise, if he is a SO there will be more rules.. all depends.. you cannot have any guns in the house. again it depends on his conviction.

Did your LO live there before and is he a new person in the apartment, how does your lease refer to that.

There are certain dogs that felons cannot have if it's considered a vicious dog:

http://www.illinoisprisontalk.org/index.php?topic=6430.msg47192#msg47192


(720 ILCS 5/12‑36)
    Sec. 12‑36. Possession of certain dogs by felons prohibited.
    (a) For a period of 10 years commencing upon the release of a person from incarceration, it is unlawful for a person convicted of a forcible felony, a felony violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act, a felony violation of Article 24 of the Criminal Code of 1961, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Cannabis Control Act, or a felony violation of Class 2 or higher of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, to knowingly own, possess, have custody of, or reside in a residence with, either:
        (1) an unspayed or unneutered dog or puppy older than 
     12 weeks of age; or
 
        (2) irrespective of whether the dog has been spayed 
     or neutered, any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.
 

    (b) Any dog owned, possessed by, or in the custody of a person convicted of a felony, as described in subsection (a), must be microchipped for permanent identification.
    (c) Sentence. A person who violates this Section is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
    (d) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this Section that the dog in question is neutered or spayed, or that the dog in question was neutered or spayed within 7 days of the defendant being charged with a violation of this Section. Medical records from, or the certificate of, a doctor of veterinary medicine licensed to practice in the State of Illinois who has personally examined or operated upon the dog, unambiguously indicating whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered, shall be prima facie true and correct, and shall be sufficient evidence of whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered. This subsection (d) is not applicable to any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.

The entire law is as follows:

(720 ILCS 5/12-36)
    Sec. 12-36. Possession of unsterilized or vicious dogs by felons prohibited.
    (a) For a period of 10 years commencing upon the release of a person from incarceration, it is unlawful for a person convicted of a forcible felony, a felony violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act, a felony violation of Section 26-5 or 48-1 of this Code, a felony violation of Article 24 of this Code, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Cannabis Control Act, or a felony violation of Class 2 or higher of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, to knowingly own, possess, have custody of, or reside in a residence with, either:
        (1) an unspayed or unneutered dog or puppy older than
       
12 weeks of age; or
        (2) irrespective of whether the dog has been spayed
       
or neutered, any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.
    (b) Any dog owned, possessed by, or in the custody of a person convicted of a felony, as described in subsection (a), must be microchipped for permanent identification.
    (c) Sentence. A person who violates this Section is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
    (d) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this Section that the dog in question is neutered or spayed, or that the dog in question was neutered or spayed within 7 days of the defendant being charged with a violation of this Section. Medical records from, or the certificate of, a doctor of veterinary medicine licensed to practice in the State of Illinois who has personally examined or operated upon the dog, unambiguously indicating whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered, shall be prima facie true and correct, and shall be sufficient evidence of whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered. This subsection (d) is not applicable to any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.

I was wondering if others on this board had the same issues with LO released to their home if their LO's have a felony conviction for crimes other than highlighted in the above law.  Say for example aggravated DUI or leaving the scene of an accident.

My son was convicted of leaving the scene of an accident and we have 3 small dogs at home.  One is his old friend and companion.  We are planning on our son staying with us until he gets back on his feet and wondering if the 3 small dogs will be an issue.

Anybody have any similar experiences??

Thanks

Our son's dog died in November.  It was an elderly german shepherd/hound mix. 

However, we have elected not to get another dog until our son is released.

trauma4us i am sorry for all of you and especially your son not being able to be there.  I know i have found it very hard to continue to do things without having my son with us.  I have found no one that hasn't been thru the court system understands the loss love ones go thru.  God Bless

Back at you Father.  We visited yesterday - it was our son's 32nd birthday.  He's been incarcerated over 3.5 years now - almost halfway there!

We are fortunate we can visit often

Father, don't think your son is going to have a problem UNLESS the PO he gets causes one .. his conviction for DUI isn't listed in what I posted back to you.  As long as the dogs are fixed and then again it depends on the PO and it's only for certain dogs.

Sometimes a PO will not show up if this is the inmates home (where he lived before) and he doesn't have to get approval from anyone.

If they need prior approval, they will call and set up a time to come and check. If you are not home, they will continue to check, trust me, they'll get an approval if needed before the inmate is out, but sometimes they don't need prior approval.

Thanks Mah,that was reassuring. I am so worried that they may show up and  I am at work 10 hours a day and they will not approve or they will call me and I can not answer because I am working and they will not approve. My landlord did the lease with my name and my sons name on it and I sent a copy to my son so I hope that helps. He is hearing stories that the PO went to homes and no one was there and they denied the site.  This is my stressing point right now.

Forevermah, you mention " certain dogs", I can not find anywhere what breed specifically they are regarding this to. The information you sent also does not explain it in depth.

Do you know where I can find this specific list of breeds? Because what's considered a dangerous dog to one person to another it is not.

Hope to find some more clarification on this.
