Call her back and she what she says, just count to 10 when you talk to her. As her about him reapplying and how long before he could do that, it's usually not for six months.  Good Luck, hope you get somewhere.

I looked at his paper work he did have the ankle monitor onfor 90 days which is what was reguired.  She told me to call her back so I will tomorrow. Itslike she made a mistake and he is paying for it.   There should be someone else to contact.

If he keeps working he should be out Dec 2015.  He wanted work release to help him transition back to life and get a job.

Do you think this may be the reason because he didn't finish his home monitoring

 Receive a positive assessment of risk and needs.

I donot see anything in the eligibility that would cause him to get denied.   The thing is he hasn't even put in for wr yet.  She messed his file up by putting the wrong persons info into his file.  So once you are denied that's it? He has told me people with worse records & crimes than his get approved.  I am so frustrated.

No, he can reapply in six months.  How much more time does he has on his sentence?

 Work release is extremely hard to get into and when an inmate has anything in his record that they can use against him, they do and will.  I will try to pull up the rules per Title 20 in a few minutes to see if there is anything in there.

Many inmates are denied for the sole purpose of being properly placed, in other words the consider them in the right facility already in IDOC.  There is only so much space in the ATC's for the 1000's of inmates that apply.

My son was told he is denied work release because he unsuccessfuly completed his previous home monitering.  Has anyone heard of this being a reason for denial.
He was told he was denied  2 weeks ago but never put in for it wasn't time he talked to his counsler she told him it was because he unsuccessfully completing previous wr & mental health issues he has never had wr before & no mental health issues she told him she put someone elses info into his name and would fix it..  I called her today she said she woild fix it but now came up with a new reason to deny him.  Which is the home monitering issue.  I feel like he is being treated unfairly.  Is there someone I contact to discuss this.  I feel like the counsler messed up and doesn't care.  Any help would be appreciated.
