BUS SERVICES TO ILLINOIS PRISONS / Re: Quality Care Prison Transportation LLC
« Last post by zillion1 on June 25, 2016, 07:39:11 PM »
I took a trip to Jacksonville CC with Quality Care Transportation and couldn't have been more pleased. If you want a service who is dependable, courteous, professional and CARES about their clientele then this is the transportation service for you!!!! I felt very valued as a customer and Jimiek goes out of his way to make sure you have a great visit with you loved one. I highly recommend you give this service a try. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Hi everyone--my nephew is about to be transferred to Graham from Hill.  I apologize in advance if this offends anyone, but he was led to believe that some of his  'adult' photos and magazines might not be allowed at Graham, that they are stricter there.  I told him I would ask and see.  I know Graham has a sex offender program (my nephew's incarceration is not related to anything like this) so I thought maybe they were stricter for that reason, if they are?  I am a little embarrassed even asking but I said I would.  Thanks for your help!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS / Re: Inmates shoes sent home. What does it mean?

It means instead of them throwing them away, like they do most guys that go in and issue them new shoes, they mailed them back to you, lucky him.  You are going to have to wait to see if they keep him now on his violation or release him.

Check the IDOC website this morning, they normally don't change it until later in the evening and see if anything has changed.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS / Inmates shoes sent home. What does it mean?
« Last post by ImJustaGirl7 on June 24, 2016, 07:15:46 PM »
So i got home today. A package from Stateville CC was sitting on my porch. It was my boyfriend's shoes. He had been on parole since April 1, 2015 and was arrested for a warrant on june 12, 2016 for missing a court date for a ticket he got. He would have been done with parole  April 1 2017. He saw the PRB yesterday (6/23/2016) @9am. The IDOC website says he is still in registration. So now his shoes being sent home has me confused. Its only his shoes, no clothes. They sent them out through UPS last night at around 8pm. (I tracked the package) He cant call me as my number is still not approved. Can someone help me figure this out? Im terribly confused.

If they don't have any money, the prison pays for it. They also get $10 to buy something to eat and a change of clothes (sweats & tshirt in summer or a sweatshirt in winter). He will have some money on his books because everybody gets state pay and during the end of their time, they are not allowed to buy anything except hygiene items, this is to help with their departure costs.

I'm looking for some insight. My bf is set to be out on the 23rd of this month. He got a ticket two days ago and hasn't heard anything about it yet. What is protocol and can they hold up his discharge?

I believe they have 10-14 days to hear the ticket and at that time, they will decide if he is found guilty if they will add time to his sentence, or let him out on time. Sorry you are having to go through this now with him being so close.
