My LO is in East Moline. They told him that any letter with anything ďstickyĒ, like crayon, colored pencil, lipstick, etc. would be rejected. Iím sorry your letter got sent back. That really stinks. :-(
Did you use them on the envelope?  I use gel pens inside the letter.  (They told me I could), but my envelope is very plain. Just his address
Hi Everybody,

My LO is in Pontiac Medium Security Unit, and I ve just received back one of my letter... The reason ? "Colored Pencil/Crayon NOT Allowed"... Does someone have news about that ? I am a little bit confused, because I am sending him drawings or other stuff made with colored pencil for years... Did I missed something ?

Have a nice day  :wc1:
Anyone have an idea on how long someone must be at their work release center in order to qualify for good time? My l/o is currently at Stateville farm awaiting a bed at a Chicago center. He only has 6 months left in his sentence and I am hearing most people are getting the full 6 months if eligible.
