Thanks for the clarification,Gizgirl2...This sounds like something very hopeful for our L/O's...Praying it goes through.

Yes, hopefully it will help when they are trying to get employment.

So this will only include inmates just entering the system and maybe long term prisoners. I know the county I live in won't go through and give someone this that they sent 5 months ago and only has 7 more to go...

The ammendment says its for anyone minus the charges that were listed. Its 2 years after they are released from parole, as long as they have been good can apply. So I don't think it matters at all how long they were sentenced for.

Clearly I didn't read this right. So it's for AFTER their release from prison. Wow. Thank you for the clarification lol it only took two of you to explain it for me to get it

Hello humbird37! Yes,these men need that break that this bill would give them...With rehabilitation being pretty much nonexistent in IDOC,they are not prepared to live in the outside world as it is.Hopefully this bill will pass and they can have a second chance at making a living and being productive citizens...That's what society expects but yet they are not given the necessary tools while inside or when they get released..It's a vicious cycle with the way our criminal justice system operates.....or rather DOES NOT! :wc4:

I agree stayintrue...
Thank you,sonshine...Yes,I am fed up to my eyeballs with all the stuff that my fiance has been telling me! This bill will certainly help when they are released....Now I'd like to see something to help those that have been unjustly sentenced to ridiculous years! I wish they would get rid of this 85% crap...The whole system is a JOKE :wc20: But this HB3475 bill is a good start to reforming our mess of a criminal justice system...At least it brings some hope for those trying to start over and have gainful employment.
