How Long Until Answer From Prb
« on: March 04, 2013, 03:02:49 PM »
I was hoping that somebody could tell me how long it takes for the Prisoner Review Board to tell an inmate what they will be facing after violating parole. Will I be able to call a counselor at Stateville?will I find out immediately what his sentence is?

The PRB meets at the prisons once a month.  If the inmate is moved to another prison while waiting to see the PRB and the PRB has been to that prison already then the inmate will be on the next month's docket.
There is no action better at creating insanity in a person than trying to control something you have no control over.

Only do whatever you are willing to pay the consequences for.

Can't really answer.  Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't.
