Thank you for responding I appreciate it. I drove down there yesterday, spoke to the warden and another CO. After about 25 minutes of sitting in a room alone the Shutterfly books magically appeared. They could not locate the card he received on 9/25 that had 12 photos in it. But I know itís there, theuvdelivered to him on 10/1 a second card that was also received on 9/25. I always weigh and print postage for s*** like that and have the tracking numbers. Certainly donít want my half buddy floating around lol. The books arenít even against the technical policy, thereís no nudity. But they said theyíre too suggestive.... whatever. At least I got them back. Thanks again! Only 85 more days of this s*** then heís HOME SWEET HOME

Not only would I call the warden i would also call Springfield. That is not only morally wrong but is mail fraud he paid to send something that wasnt sent then there is the first of you pics because they are his property and should have been returned. I truly believe most guards are mor criminals than those on the other side of the bars

PAROLE/RE-ENTRY / Re: New Parole Conditions?
« Last post by 3tenjen on October 14, 2018, 12:32:27 PM »
Thanks, Father.  A few details:  My l/o was issued an order of protection by his sentencing judge, which began the day he walked out of prison.  Once home, he did wear the ankle bracelet, but for only about 2 weeks or so.  Now, halfway done with his parole and doing well, no incidents, he has heard that any parolee with an order of protection is to be placed on the ankle bracelet for the entire parole.  I'm trying to find out if this is true.  If it is, would it be a new condition going forward for new parolees?  Or would it apply to parolees who are already out and getting on with their lives?  (Kind of like changing the rules in the middle of the game.)  Either way, it seems a bit extreme.  And expensive for the State.  Not sure where to search to see if any new parole rules have been put in place.  Appreciate your help.

Hi. My LO was just approved for parole and the site without electronic monitoring. Heís in for a domestic and has an active OP.

SENDING MAIL, BOOKS, MUSIC, PHOTOS TO ILLINOIS INMATES / Missing photos (Robinson)
« Last post by 3tenjen on October 14, 2018, 11:53:27 AM »
Hi all! So two issues Iím asking about. I sent my LO a Shutterfly book and 8 photos deemed unauthorized for nudity (they werenít even naked, all my parts were covered). So he had to provide a Manila envelope and a voucher to pay to return the s*** to me. He signed the forms. Yesterday I receive the big envelope (they cost $1.21 stamped) and nothing was in it except the 3 forms. There were clearly staples removed so Iím wondering why they didnít give them back. Second issue-I went him some other sexy pics a few weeks ago and he got *most* of them but the COs have been kinda razzing him about me and stuff and he thinks they kept some of my pictures cuz some are missing. Iím going to visit him Tuesday, should I bring the big empty envelope and ask to speak to the warden? This is concerning to me, I know I chose to send sexy pics but what the heck.... idw to just call. Is bothering the warden too extreme? Any suggestions? I also donít wanna cause issues for him, he doesnít care cuz heís angry, but Iíd like to know where my s*** is and in whoís hands you know. TIA :)

Hi Sissy12 and all.  I am also looking for any updated info regarding the Peoria ATC.  It looks like the last time any info was posted was several years ago.  My son is supposed to be transferring here from Shawnee as soon as they have an opening, and was just wondering if anyone on here has a lo there currently and may have some tips/sugestions/general information?

Thanks!
