You can try Springfield, but you might have to request the information through the FOIA. That could take some time. He should also be able to request it.

Hi everyone,
So recently my (now) ex boyfriend was resentenced and they were suppose to lower his sentenced but instead they (the judge) increased it. So my ex wants me to find a copy of his first original release date. He said I could obtain it from the Springfield IDOC office? But I read that may not be possible. So does anyone know where I may be able to obtain some sort of record with his original release date? Would I need a subpoena for his records?
Any information or direction is greatly appreciated
Thank you!

Illinois AG not sure about paying workers

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Attorney General Lisa Madigan raised doubts Monday about Gov. Bruce Rauner’s plan to continue paying state employees even if there’s no budget agreement by Wednesday.

Madigan, a Democrat, issued a statement that questioned Rauner’s announcement hours earlier that there was legal precedent to issue paychecks to 65,000 government workers after the start of the fiscal year while he and Democrats in the General Assembly continue their tussle over how to pay the state’s bills.

In a memo to state workers provided to The Associated Press, the Republican governor said flatly, “State employees will be paid for their work.”

“I will do everything within my power,” the governor continued. “Our lawyers are working hard to ensure that all employees will be paid on their scheduled pay dates. The precedent already exists.”

Madigan responded with a detailed summary of the state’s timely-paycheck history, emphasizing that a 25-year-old appellate court decision flatly stated that cutting checks without an approved fiscal plan violates the Illinois Constitution.

“Even a court cannot order all of these payments to be made,” Madigan said.

State officials are bracing for what some call a partial government shutdown. Although there is money enough to pay employees through mid-month, some state services will be disrupted. Vendors who have continuing contracts will not be paid.

Democrats sent Rauner a $36 billion spending outline they acknowledged was up to $4 million short on money to pay for it. But they argued the services are vital. Rauner argues that fixing the fiscal mess depends on changing the state’s business and political climates — from limiting liability lawsuit payouts to putting term limits on politicians.

Rauner spokeswoman Catherine Kelly insisted there is precedent for Rauner’s plan. During a 2007 budget impasse, the largest employee labor union, the Illinois Council of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, filed a lawsuit to compel distribution of paychecks in August. The court ordered payment based on agreement among the comptroller, attorney general and unions to pay in compliance with state and federal law, Kelly said.

“We simply want the same outcome here,” Kelly said. “We are ready to reach a similar agreement with state workers and hope the attorney general reconsiders her efforts to block state workers from getting paid.”

Madigan’s take on the events of 2007 differ. She said the AFSMCE lawsuit focused on a federal requirement that employers pay at least the federal minimum wage when checks are due or face financial penalties. Because a separate payroll reflecting the federal minimum wage was cumbersome, the court authorized the full payroll. The budget was signed into law in time for the month’s second payroll.

Madigan said the court noted it wasn’t setting precedent. If a fresh court challenge is necessary, AFSCME appears ready.

“State employees will remain on the job, and as we have done in the past, we have prepared to take legal action to ensure that they are paid on time,” AFSCME Council 31 executive director Roberta Lynch said in a statement.

The General Assembly plans to be in session Tuesday and Wednesday. House Speaker Michael Madigan, a Chicago Democrat and the attorney general’s father, has invited 15 Rauner cabinet members to explain their preparations for entering the 2016 fiscal year without new money. The speaker was unimpressed by Rauner’s paycheck pronouncement.

Making the promise, Madigan spokesman Steve Brown said, merely telegraphs “disruption, both of state services and the payment of state employees.”

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to get more information tomorrow from the agencies on their plans, their preparedness for disruption and shutdown, and how we might work to minimize all of that.”

I'm guessing sexual crimes don't get this :(  they don't get anything good like that.

I am not sure, but they do take the conviction into account.  You can look on the list on the IDOC website and see if anyone with a similar crime has gotten any SSC.

Two Illinois prisons on lockdown


SPRINGFIELD — Two Illinois prisons were placed on lockdown status over the weekend after inmates and guards were involved in scuffles.

According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, two inmates at the all-female Decatur Correctional Center were involved in a fight on Friday night. The 770-inmate facility is on partial lockdown in the wake of that incident.

Corrections spokeswoman Nicole Wilson said neither inmate required hospitalization.

On Saturday, an inmate attacked an employee of the Lawrence Correctional Center in Sumner, triggering a full lockdown at the medium-security facility in eastern Illinois.

Neither the attacker or the employee of the 2,367-inmate facility required hospitalization, Wilson said.

A lockdown results in limits being placed on inmate movement within the prison and limits on visitors to the facilities.

you said that after 60 days they are evaluated then?
so if they have been there almost a yr and not received ssc its probably not going to happen?

Could be closer to the time that they are going to get out, or they just don't qualify,cannot say for sure if they will get any.


They evaluate them after 60 days, doesn't mean they give the SSC after 60 days .. some of the ones that have less time to serve may get it quicker, some not until they are closer to getting out.  It doesn't seem to work like the OLD goodtime did.
