Yes, VINE will give you a two week notice, so you will be able to adjust your schedule.

But the IDOC does NOT pay an inmate who goes past their out-date. The only reason an inmate is kept past that day is if they have no parole site and are violated at the door.

 From the Joint Committee in response to SB2621.    It says exactly what we have been saying here, IDOC has to implement the rules and regulationss before JCAR can review them.




Dear Ms.

DOC proposes implementation rules first, then JCAR reviews the rules before they are adopted. We don't review Public Acts but if an agency fails to implement a PA in a timely fashion (generally, within a year after a PA becomes law) we may remind them to do so. DOC does tend to be rather slow about adopting or updating rules for anything and I suspect this will be no exception.

 
PA 97-697 was effective June 22, 2012. However, many of its provisions appear to be contingent upon the Department of Corrections issuing rules to implement them, and we do not know when that will take place. This includes provisions regarding sentence credit (formerly "good conduct/early release" credit) for actions undertaken while an inmate is in custody at a county jail prior to trial or sentencing. You may wish to consult DOC for more information.

Thanks,
 

Joint Committee on Administrative rules

Wow.  The Joint Committee is REALLY slamming DOC and in writing yet.  I'm surprised that they would do that in writing about a state facility but perhaps I shouldn't be.

Not slamming them at all, just telling the truth, DOC does not move quickly, something we've known here for a very long time.

Welcome to IPT Krisey !  

You ask a very good question that many here on IPT are wondering too, who exactly is going to be eligible to receive the new *sentence credit* under the new bill, SB2621.  

Right now IDOC is implementing new rules and regulations to comply with this new bill and then it is passed on to the JCAR Committee to review those rules.  Once they have approved it, which we don't know how long all this will take, the new rules will be implemented and those inmates who are eligible will start to be released.

If your inmate does qualify, he could earn up to 6 months extra time taken off of his sentence, this of course is not guaranteed, if given it could be taken away, just like the GT was under the old program.  We just do not know right now, who is going to be eligible.

We will be posting the NEW information on all this as we know it, so the best thing you can do, is check these topics often to see if any new news has been posted on this issue.


You can also go back to the first post of this topic for more information:

The meetings are held at different prisons and I don't believe they are open to the public.   I believe the meeting on Monday is at Dwight or Lincoln Prison.  

It looks like they are going to talk about the new SB2621, but remember this, they don't write the new rules and regs:

The Board advises the Director concerning policy matters and programs of the Department with regard to the custody, care, study, discipline, training and treatment of persons in the State correctional institutions and for the care and supervision of persons released on parole.

This is the Agenda for that meeting:


Illinois Department of Corrections Advisory Board Meeting
Monday, July 23, 2012 10:00am
Lincoln Correctional Center

AGENDA

 Welcome, Introductions and Roll Call
Wm. Patrick Hartshorn, Chair, IDOC Advisory Board

 Action Item: Approval of Minutes from April 30, 2012 Meeting Wm. Patrick Hartshorn, Chair, IDOC Advisory Board

 Pending Closures-Jerry Buscher, Executive Chief to Director

 Old Business

Ethics Training

Wm. Patrick Hartshorn, Chair, IDOC Advisory Board

I was beginning to think they stuck it on the bottom of a "Stack" like the rest of the paperwork  :wc1:  I know we still have a long road to go.. And yes i know it doesn't have anything to do with the rules and regs part. Just nice to see that its being "brought up".  :wc6:

Thanks for noticing that it was on the schedule mssinmyhubby.  I know it doesn't mean it is coming close to being implemented, but at least it is being brought up.  We have to appreciate the fact that at least it is being discussed.

 My LO is in Dwight. The CO's are telling her that January 15th is the start of the 180 day good time.
She said people will start being released after January 15. I was told by her if you have 6 months or less you are going home. This may only be Dwight idk...

I spoke with my L/O who is in Jacksonville (Greene County Work Camp) and he asked me to find out about Feb 4th. I know it could be another inside rumor but he mentioned that was the day they were going to start handing it out. Again, not sure what the truth to that is because when I looked, I found nothing supporting it. I've been researching this for days, and can't come up with anything.

You can't come up with anything because there is nothing to come up with.  They have not even changed Title 20 Administrative Code with the new Rules and Regs yet, there are steps that have to be done before anyone will be awarded any SSC and until those things are done, nothing will happen.

I will tell you to tell your LO, to expect nothing but his out date on the IDOC website and he if he sticks by that, he won't be upset.

The dates like Feb 4 and every month on the 4th is exactly what has been going on for 3 years!  So many rumors have gone down and it's still going on.

Under the old program, not all Class X convictions were denied the full 180 days of Goodtime.  

Now they are calling it Good Conduct Credit/Supplemental Sentence Credit and it is at the discretion of the Warden of each prison to hand it out, per the new rules and regulations and they are looking at an inmates whole history, not only conviction.

Here are the rules for SSC and who can/cannot earn it:



(3) The rules and regulations shall also provide that
      
the Director may award up to 180 days additional sentence credit for good conduct in specific instances as the Director deems proper. The good conduct may include, but is not

limited to, compliance with the rules and regulations of the Department, service to the Department, service to a community, or service to the State. However, the Director shall

 not award more than 90 days of sentence credit for good conduct to any prisoner who is serving a sentence for conviction of first degree murder, reckless homicide while under

the influence of alcohol or any other drug, or aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or compounds, or any combination

thereof as defined in subparagraph (F) of paragraph (1) of subsection (d) of Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, aggravated kidnapping, kidnapping, predatory criminal

sexual assault of a child, aggravated criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual assault, deviate sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, aggravated indecent liberties with

 a child, indecent liberties with a child, child pornography, heinous battery as described in Section 12-4.1 or subdivision (a)(2) of Section 12-3.05, aggravated battery of a spouse,

 aggravated battery of a spouse with a firearm, stalking, aggravated stalking, aggravated battery of a child as described in Section 12-4.3 or subdivision (b)(1) of Section

12-3.05, endangering the life or health of a child, or cruelty to a child. Notwithstanding the foregoing, sentence credit for good conduct shall not be awarded on a sentence of

imprisonment imposed for conviction of: (i) one of the offenses enumerated in subdivision (a)(2)(i), (ii), or (iii) when the offense is committed on or after June 19, 1998 or

subdivision (a)(2)(iv) when the offense is committed on or after June 23, 2005 (the effective date of Public Act 94-71) or subdivision (a)(2)(v) when the offense is committed on

 or after August 13, 2007 (the effective date of Public Act 95-134) or subdivision (a)(2)(vi) when the offense is committed on or after June 1, 2008 (the effective date of Public

Act 95-625) or subdivision (a)(2)(vii) when the offense is committed on or after July 23, 2010 (the effective date of Public Act 96-1224), (ii) aggravated driving under the

influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating compound or compounds, or any combination thereof as defined in subparagraph (F) of paragraph (1) of subsection (d)

 of Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, (iii) one of the offenses enumerated in subdivision (a)(2.4) when the offense is committed on or after July 15, 1999 (the effective

date of Public Act 91-121), (iv) aggravated arson when the offense is committed on or after July 27, 2001 (the effective date of Public Act 92-176), (v) offenses that may subject

 the offender to commitment under the Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act, or (vi) aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs, or intoxicating

 compound or compounds or any combination thereof as defined in subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1) of subsection (d) of Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code committed

 on or after January 1, 2011 (the effective date of Public Act 96-1230).
