My son transferred from Lawrenceville to Centralia because they offered work programs.  After he got there the vendors pulled out of Centralia due to lack of payment.   There is even concern that the water bill wasn't being paid to the town either. 

Does any one know for a fact if work opportunities are still available at Dixon, Graham, Lincoln, or Jacksonville?   Or have these programs also been eliminated.   I would welcome any information one may have of the overall condition of schooling or work for the entire IDOC.   At last report I read, the legislature had failed to pass a budget which led to shortfalls across the board for IDOC.  The website for the different locations say that they offer all these various classes or work but in reality they don't anymore.   Hope someone has a first hand knowledge of these locations.

Yes he was marked as absconder.. He's there since 8/22/16 so not that long but they already have the projected discharge date for him as 6/18/17. It's not a definite date then is it?

It might be his real out day, they won't cut him any less time since he ran .. he'll have to wait and see.

So there is no way for him to get released earlier?

Honestly I'm not sure.  My expectation would be no, seeing as he was violated and ran.

ILLINOIS ADULT TRANSISTIONS CENTER - (ATC'S) / Eligible for work release?
« Last post by bossman2016 on August 24, 2016, 12:51:04 PM »
I was wondering if someone could tell me if my friend would be able to get work release? Here's his story.. This will be his second time sentenced to d.o.c.. He's looking at 5 or 6yrs for class 1 participation in meth mauf.. He went to work release in Decatur on his first sentence.. He got his g.e.d there and paroled out of there.. He violated his parole for not having a parole address and reporting to his parole agent.. He didn't catch anymore charges but went back to doc to do the rest of his parole time.. they sent him to Lawrence where he did 6months and let him out.. Now he's looking at these new charges.. what's his chances of getting work release again?

They normally will see the PRB within a month or so of being brought in, you'll have to wait and see.  If they have him down as an absconder, I am not sure what the procedure is for that.

How long has he been back in Stateville, they don't see the board till they are there or moved to a parent prison.  The PRB only gets to each prison once per month.
