While none of those things are necessarily contraband, the entire collection might seem suspicious and lead to a thorough search of your car. It would be best to clean it out before visiting.

After reading this again, I haven't had time to really sit and absorb it lately, but I think what this is saying, is that if an inmate in on the charges they specify (not the ones mentioned in the amendment) has done things while inside to show he is rehabilitated, they can issue a certificate and only then the Chief Judge of the judicial circuit where the conviction was entered, has the opportunity to grant this good time certificate, yes to inmates already in the system.  I THINK, DON'T hold me to this :)

We don't even know if this is going to pass and there is a lot to be considered before this can even happen, not everyone is going to qualify, just like not everyone qualifies for the SSC now.





(a) After a rehabilitation review has been held, in a manner designated by the chief judge of the judicial circuit in which the conviction was entered, the Circuit Court of that judicial circuit shall have the power to issue a certificate of good conduct to any eligible offender previously convicted of a crime in this State, and shall make a specific finding of rehabilitation with the force and effect of a final judgment on the merits, when the Court is satisfied that:

(1) the applicant has conducted himself or herself in
      
a manner warranting the issuance for a minimum period in accordance with the provisions of subsection (c) of this Section;
        (2) the relief to be granted by the certificate is
      
consistent with the rehabilitation of the applicant; and
        (3) the relief to be granted is consistent with the
      
public interest.

This article brought tears to my eyes because 90% really just don't know and without the help and the available resources....they are lost back to the system. May God be with them!

He keeps asking me to look for any info on something he heard about people that have served 35 or 40% of their time and I havent been able to find anything. i think its probably another rumor started by some bored CO or wishful thinking made up by some inmate

You won't find anything because there is nothing to find. There is no massive release project.

I'm planning to visit a friend. I have a bunch of living stuff in my car. So what I was wondering is what are things I can't have in my car on prison grounds? yes I know the basic gun, pepper spray, and scissors are a no no. But what else? I don't want to have anything that would prevent me from visiting. Thanks!!!!!
