PAROLE/RE-ENTRY / Parole board meeting..now what
« Last post by coasterman on April 25, 2018, 11:49:57 AM »
My LO (finally) was supposed to have appeared before the Parole board yesterday, but I've heard nothing. As I sit here on pins and needles how long does it take for a person to hear what happened---one way or the other?

SENDING MAIL, BOOKS, MUSIC, PHOTOS TO ILLINOIS INMATES / Re: Furious about this

Yeah that's exactly how I feel; after the dust settles a bit and a person cools off some, one has to realize the big picture, for the sake of he LO that is being held there. After they are released it's another story.

     This has happened to me too. Though I was upset, I let it go. With IDOC you have to decide what battles you want to pick and how they could effect your inmate and yourself.
                                               Good luck with whatever you decide! :wc30:

This happened to me before. It really is small compared to a lot of other mail issues we've experienced. I just resent it and it went through the second time.

My advice is to leave it alone. This is really small compared to the stuff you could be dealing with the IDOC. Save yourself and your LO the grief. You never know when you may have a more serious battle to deal with.

SENDING MAIL, BOOKS, MUSIC, PHOTOS TO ILLINOIS INMATES / Furious about this
« Last post by coasterman on April 24, 2018, 10:16:24 AM »
Today I got the last letter I sent to my LO because they claimed there was PERFUME on it. For the record I have never used perfume on any of my mail in general, and of course never to all my many, many letters to my loved one who has been at NRC. For all I know it could have been one of the workers in the mail room right there who was handling the mail with perfume on their hands. I want to take issue with that mail room about this, but I want to hold back so as not to jeopardize anything with my LO who is about to leave there. I have zero trust in that place, but what I want to know is where do I complain...the mailroom? Another higher up address perhaps?

Does anyone know where I can find catalogs for my l/o to order from? He had one and sent me something but it didn't have a lot of items. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

SENTENCE CREDIT - CLEMENCY - EXPUNGEMENT / Re: SSC Credit
« Last post by Nemdf on April 23, 2018, 01:09:02 PM »
My LO said a new law regarding sentence credits was passed on 1/18/2018.  Does anyone have a copy or link to the revised law?  I found 730 ILCS 5/3-6-3 (from Ch. 38, par. 1003-6-3).  Is this the latest?  He has asked me to print a copy of the new provisions for him.

Thank you.
