IDOC INMATE TRANSFERS / Love one in Cook County Jail
« Last post by Zellores on December 05, 2016, 11:15:09 AM »
Hello

My name is Zellores, but feel free to call me "Z." I have a question regarding a love who is incarcerated at the Cook County Jail. Right now he is in the process with his lawyer fighting a case for aggravated assault and attempt murder. My love one was being held in Division 11 housing at the Cook County jail. They have now transferred him to the worse housing division known to man Division 9.

Does anyone know or can suggest how he can request a transfer back to Division 11. Division 9 is filled with young irresponsible men that constantly fight and keep up too much commotion. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Z

That is fantastic news! I am so happy for both of you! Maybe the world we are living in is getting better!

Update: I have now visited my baby 2 times. And shockingly enough they are so accepting there. The COs are super cool and my man has even had a few of the guys commend him for being fearless and not caring who sees him kiss me. We hold hands and no one bats an eye. Ugh as rough as it is Centralia is turning out to be a decent place for him. He gets along with everyone just like he does out here. Man times are really changing even in the prison environment because no way in hell even just 25 years ago I would have been able to hug him and kiss him and hold his hands while visiting him.  :wc7: :wc1: :wc1:

I came across several people who had OP previously and presently (at the time of attendance).  I don't know the official stance, however there were no observed issues.

Has anyone LO ever been sent to IDOC for less than 3 months? This just doesn't make sense to me, my husband will be sent to prison on the 22nd of this month, he has spent the last 3 months on house arrest for Driving on suspended giving 1 year and now the judge says he's going to prison for the remaining 3 months

He has to be sent there to be processed through the system and at this point I wouldn't get your hopes up for him being out any earlier.  Sorry you are going through this, but 3 months will go by fast.

My son transferred from Lawrence to Centralia.   It was certainly much nicer and more movement.  Unfortunately, this also meant more free time to get into trouble.   Never let your guard down and assume everything is fine with others.   The prison culture is just as present at Centralia as anywhere else.  My son got close to another guy (just friends) and trusted him.   A gang was able to take advantage of this friendship and pitted the two against each other.  The friend stole from my son then when confronted attacked my son in an unobserved area.  Both went to seg but the other guy was ready to be released.  My son got 3 months seg and extra time then transferred to a tighter facility.   Never get too comfortable and trusting.   It pays to be discrete and travel under the radar.  Even in the visiting area inmates are checking out other inmates.

So true Lu !!  Sorry your son had to go through it, but glad he learned.

                  So glad everything went so well on your visits! It is good to see with all the crap and backwardness of the world in the last year that some places are finally moving ahead : )
