Inmates who work industry job or go to school are eligible for the program credit dispite murder charge.

Unless they were sentenced under the truth in sentencing law which negates any good time except what was written at sentencing. If you are on a 100%, 85%, 75% truth in sentencing sentence, thats what you will serve and there is no "good time".

I use GTL for trust deposits. My LO usually has the money in 24 hours and itís cheaper than JPay. Itís $5.95 for the first $100, $6.75 for $200 and $8.95 for $300. You can also email from the same account if itís available. Setup is easy. Go to www.connectnetwork.com.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS / Lawrence Correctional

Hey

My son was transferred to Lawrence today. He received a 3 year sentence with credit for 270 days and will be home in October at the latest. What can I expect from Lawrence? How soon will he be able to enter programs? What is housing like? How soon can he shop? What's the fastest way to put money on his books?

My l/o was just transferred to Stateville awaiting a bed at Crossroads. Can anyone speak to the amount of time he may need to wait there?

 No. Email is through GTL. www.connectnetwork.com. You can actually send trust deposits  through them as well. Emails cost credits, but is very convenient and very cheap. 20 credits are $4.00. It costs One credit for you to send an email, and one credit for them to email you. You can buy credits and transfer them to your loved one, or I believe they can buy them on commissary as well.
