Everyone is on Level 4 except North 1, they are still on Level 1.
So I just called Menard to ask a question, I spoke to a Sargent at the gate house, and while talking to him I said "Hopefully you guys will be off of LD in August so I can come up there to visit" and he said "Yes we will be"

Very friendly man.  wc1

onesadmomma, I am not sure on the ruling about once they have been sent back to prison from bootcamp, that they are no longer eligible for work release, but I will look through our criteria for bootcamp and work release(Title 20) and see what I can find.

I don't understand what they said about him getting out earlier if he got into work release than he would have if he had stayed in bootcamp.  They do not give them any extra time for going to work release, it is the same time that any other inmate would get.  The bootcamp program is between 120-180 days.

What was your sons total sentence?  How much more time did they give him inside, what is his outdate on his profile on the IDOC website?

High Temperatures Threaten Inmates’ Health in US Prisons – Reports

http://en.ria.ru/world/20140728/191396217/High-Temperatures-Threaten-Inmates-Health-in-US-Prisons--Reports.html

High temperatures at some correctional facilities in the United States might make them life-threatening environments for the aging inmate population, WUIS, University of Illinois at Springfield’s radio station, reported.

MOSCOW, July 28 (RIA Novosti) – High temperatures at some correctional facilities in the United States might make them life-threatening environments for the aging inmate population, WUIS, University of Illinois at Springfield’s radio station, reported.

“When you closed the ... doors, they had just little dots in them, which provided any ventilation from the outside. Even after five minutes ... it was absolutely stifling — it was inconceivable to live there 23 hours a day, day after day,” Dr. Susi Vassallo, an expert on heat-related illnesses, was quoted as saying by the station.

According to Vassallo, high-temperature conditions may be very uncomfortable and even dangerous, especially for those with health conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, and for those taking medications.

For such prisoners, exposure to heat may result in long-term health problems or even death.

Mercedes Montagnes, a prisoners’ rights lawyer, said that unlike other people, prisoners cannot escape the heat because of their confinement.

Prison guards also say that prisoners are harder to manage in the heat, as there are more fights and psychiatric emergencies.

Despite the concern for the inmates’ health, some say that it is important for prisoners to remember that prison is not a hotel but a correctional facility.

“You know, they don't get to go get a cheeseburger whenever they want to, either. So, I mean, you know there's a certain amount of things that you give up when you become incarcerated,” former Texas warden Keith Price said.

Earlier in February, Jerome Murdough at Rikers Island in New York died in his cell. The investigation is still underway, but the temperature was at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the cell when he was found.

This issue may also be a matter of concern for Russia, as Roman Seleznev, a 30-year-old Russian citizen accused by the US authorities of stealing credit card data, was arrested on July 5 and taken to a US prison in Guam.

Prisons in Guam, a US island in the Pacific, are currently overcrowded and understaffed. The inmate population is known to get into frequent fights. Additional temperature-related issues may lead to horrific consequences.

It sounds like he was on the TR109 list. That is the list the Springfield puts out at the beginning of each month for people who they think might be approved for work release. Being approved to transfer to an ATC takes from 4-6 weeks for people who are not class X offenders. He will most certainly be transferred to either Jacksonville ( and then on to either Pittsfield or Greene County) if going to Peoria, SIATC, or DATC. If headed to Chicago, he will go to the Farm at Statesville. There is no telling how
long he will be there as the backlog is HUGE for ATC's right now. Thank the ASCME suit for that.

I know this is an old post but it is exactly the info I was looking for! (I think LOL)

My son (who is at Hardin) was told he was denied work release, which was perplexing since he didn't apply for it yet. All he was told was that his name was on the list from Springfield, but was told since he was originally a boot camper he was denied as no boot camper ever gets work release (even if they were medically excluded after 1 week by the IDOC as opposed to quitting or getting discharged). But then he was later told that he was denied because he was originally a boot camper and getting work release now would put him "out" before his original boot camp out date of 9/23 and that he may eventually still get it but not until after that date. Anyone had any experience with this?

My son was denied work release for failure to complete home monitoring.  Can a grievance be filed in this case or is there anything else he can do.  I was told once denied you have no options.

Thanks for any help!!!

He can reapply for work release in six months.  If he wants to file a grievance he can, but there is no guarantee anything will change.

wc72 Say I was wondering if I mail educational books is there any reason he could have them? 


Yes, those should be OK,  but just in case, call the mail room and tell them what it is you want to send in and see what they tell you.
