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

I agree truth in sentencing removes a judges discretion to sentence based on specific issues of the situation.  Of course judges are not the most accountable individuals either.

Its too little for the truth in sentencing inmates!  They need to revise the TIS laws too.

My loved one heard something very similar from their counselor in East Moline this week. He said the counselors said there were around 200 eligible there all together.

Loved one is at Sheridan and was told this week by the IDOC counselor to the entire floor that they are receiving names every Monday from Springfield for the counselors to review and send back the same week Friday to Springfield for approval.  They were handed sheets of paper outlining stipulations on what charges are not eligible for 180 ssc.
Once I can remember are murder, rape, domestic violence sexual, three aggravated DUI.  Also the regular have to complete your programs, less then 3 tickets a level b or higher.  the counselor said they only had two names on this said list Monday. But are expecting more every week but do not know how many or who
 Once the counselor sends back the approval to Springfield they said it will be two to four weeks before they get credit. My loved ones going to be out in May but again I would love to see any time taken off and will post if anything more happens at Sheridan

I think they have to verify you’re on their approved in-person visitor list, and then you can do video visits.

I signed up for the video website and I'm still waiting for approval. Does my LO need to put me on an approved list or does it depend on what facility they're are at? My LO is at IL River.

I know they don't have access to the internet in there, the person said they do everything thru a company, that they send the pics that they want to post and the statuses they want to post, and the company does it for them. They said it's a delay in timing of course, but that when someone inboxes them or comments on their pics/status the receive a notice of it. Kinda like the text thing thru the MP3 players.

I've seen the posts myself so I know the page exists, just tryin to figure out how they did it and what company they went thru. I have no direct contact with the person

Has anyone else read this article?  It could possibly affect ALLphone calls between ourselves and our L/O?

Across the United States, prisons have enrolled hundreds of thousands of incarcerated people's voices into biometric databases, allowing authorities to detect when those voices were on past prison calls and to automatically flag when a call sounds "suspicious." https://theintercept.com/…/prison-voice-prints-databases-s…/
