ILLINOIS ADULT TRANSISTIONS CENTER - (ATC'S) / Re: Crossroads ATC
« Last post by 2cimdma on February 06, 2019, 08:42:11 PM »
I'm currently in crossroads ATC. I got here back in April 2018. Back then most people would go to stateville one week and then the very next be transfered to crossroads. So he wont be there long. Normally the only exception if he is permanent party at crossroads. Basically if he has between 30-24 months left of his sentence then he will be permanent party there(at crossroads). If hes under 24 mo this then he is just normal work release.  Also dont get his Hope's up or nothing but today some people were called to their case managers(counselors) and I formed they were receiving some(or all) of the 6 months good time. So idk how that's really working yet. I was at work when other guys started calling me and letting me know. Anyways if you have any questions let me know.

Keep checking the IDOC website, and sign up for vine link notifications. I got that alert first, IDOC updated the next morning and he got out the day after.

SENTENCE CREDIT - CLEMENCY - EXPUNGEMENT / Re: SSC What is going on
« Last post by knsnapp on February 06, 2019, 09:04:07 AM »
My loved one is in a Work Release Center and they will be receiving a list of up to 30 names every Monday of those who qualify for credit. I think the baseline for SSC is 6 months right now so if they have under 6 months left they will have immediate release and will be occurring at most places where people meet the qualifications and recommendations by their counselors.  Between the two Chicago Work Release centers there are 150-200 people that qualify.   They will then parole per their parole plan.  Although I can't wait to move on and my loved one to get out, I feel like this is poor planning on IDOCS part especially when it comes to work release because many of these men have jobs and immediate release will force them to parole to a site that is not near their work areas.  If they had more solid information around dates they could prepare and move if necessary and keep the job that work release has prepared them to be successful at.   Always in limbo and it's very unfortunate.  I hope it all works out for everyone but if your loved one qualifies good things are coming!

SENTENCE CREDIT - CLEMENCY - EXPUNGEMENT / Re: Update on EDSC (Formerly SSC)????

My loved one is in a Work Release Center and they will be receiving a list of up to 30 names every Monday just as you described here.  I think the baseline for SSC is 6 months right now so if they have under 6 months left they will have immediate release but the description below is accurate and will be occurring at most places where people meet the qualifications and recommendations by their counselors.  Between the two Chicago Work Release centers there are 150-200 people that qualify.   They will then parole per their parole plan.  Although I can't wait to move on and my loved one to get out, I feel like this is poor planning on IDOCS part especially when it comes to work release because many of these mens have jobs and immediate release will force them to parole to a site that is not near their work areas.  If they had more solid information around dates they could prepare and move if necessary.   Always in limbo and it's very unfortunate.  I hope it all works out for everyone but if your loved one qualifies good things are coming!

Thanks to you both. I called and spoke with someone from Records and she wasnít too helpful, so Iíll just continue being patient and pray that Iím available and can make it down there before noon when I get that call.

My husband worked with a few men who had no clue/idea they were being released. On 2 separate occasions they were at work, all of sudden COs went to get them and basically said get your stuff youíre being released today. Not sure how long the process takes, but Iím sure they can use to phone as they go back to their housing unit to clear the cell.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS / Re: Lawrence Correctional

Yes gtl is cheaper if they have the messaging at Lawrence, I forgot about that as a slightly cheaper alternative.

Nice! Thereís not too much you can do except call the prison and ask. If you check his Iíd number on the IDOC website it should get updated with his release date when the paperworkís processed which would most likely be the day before he knows. You can sign up for vine link notifications too. My LO had something similiar he thought he was getting out dec 21, and on the 19th I got a vine notification he was being released the 24th. The next morning the IDOC website was updated. Hope this helps and best wishes!!

SENTENCE CREDIT - CLEMENCY - EXPUNGEMENT / Program Sentence Credit - Immediate Release
« Last post by Wait4Him on February 05, 2019, 07:28:33 AM »
Good Morning,

My LO will be receiving program sentence credits that will result in an immediate release. Has anyone ever experienced this? Are there any steps I can take to expedite processing the time heíll receive or anyone I can reach out to to get a more concrete date heíll be released? I will be picking him up and need to take off of work in order to do so, but canít really prepare not knowing what day heíll actually be released. Any help on this is much appreciated....TIA.
