Can anyone tell me how to obtain a copy of the sentencing papers from my LO case.  He was sentenced in DuPage County.  Is there somewhere I can go to request them?

You will need to go or call the DuPage circuit clerk's office.  If it's recent you can just go and give them the dates and case number and you should be able to get copies on the spot (keep in mind, this will cost you....typically so much for the first page and so much for each page thereafter).  If it's an older case and they have to retrieve it from microfiche, it's probably better to call.

Here's a link to the information:

sosad,
One way to get them for free is to have your LO write a request to the records office of his institution and have him ask for a copy of his Mittimus. They will give him the first set of copies free of charge. Then he can send them to you. Just an idea.

Does anyone know if you have to be a family member to get copies of the sentencing papers? My GF's family is a total train wreck and I'm handling all of her affairs while she's in Dwight. She's convinced that IDOC screwed up in going from sentencing papers to MITTIMUS. For all I know, they're the same thing. It's only a 30 day difference but it determines whether the baby is born in a real hospital with a real doctor or born the IDOC way, heaven help us.Thanks for any help.

rkallage I would have to say that it does not matter who gets the copies of the paperwork as long as you go to the circuit clerks office in that county. You will have to pay so much per page but should not be more than a couple of dollars. I wish you both the best of luck on the baby situation.

I went to the Circuit Court of Cook County and got a copy of sentencing papers today.  Does anyone know what this means:  "IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT MSNOLLE ALL OTHER COUNTS"? I tried googling MSNOLLE...no luck.

"MSNOLLE" translates to "Motion State Nolle."  In other words, the judge granted the State's motion to nolle-prosequi (not prosecute) the remaining counts on which sentence was not entered.

Just do a search on the front page of this website for the term * MITTIMUS* and you'll get your answer.

To get the sentencing papers, the inmate sends a request to the Institutional Records office and asks for a mittimus...they provide 1 copy free of charge.

I'm not trying to come across as rude so please don't take it that way, but have you tried putting MITTIMUS in the search box?  There are so many threads about this already.....it's really not as complicated as you are making it out to be.....

I'm not trying to be rude or sassy either...but if it means that much to him, he can always ask his counselor or go to the law library and they can point him in the right direction.

His bitch ass counselor told him to tell me to do it...God forbid anyone working for the IDOC gets off their ass and actually do their job!
