SSC
« on: April 06, 2016, 01:10:26 PM »
My fiance is sentenced for 1 yr on resisting officer...I was told he will not qualife for work release or work camp based on his conviction but can only hope he receives the ssc. Is there anything I can do or contact in Springfield or at shawnee to help suggest or recommend him for receiving the early release after the 61 day wait? I'm not sure of this process. He has signed up for the drug and alcohol program but not any classes due to the waiting period. Any advice would be so appreciated.

They will not talk to you or your LO about anything to do with good time .. they state that right on their website. If he is eligible he will receive paperwork telling him how much, if he is not eligible he won't receive anything.

Your LO is going to have to wait to see if they give him any SSC, don't count on it, just pray he gets something.

For those here that may think otherwise, this is the information right from the IDOC website on SSC, note the very last paragraph about calling and asking about information:




Supplemental Sentence Credit ("SSC") refers to credit of up to 180 days on an offender's incarceration that can be issued as a result of an offender's good conduct. This credit is at the sole discretion of the Director of the Department of Corrections or his designee. Similar to Statutory Sentence Credit and Program Sentence Credit, offenders may lose SSC based on their behavior while in custody.

In response to changes in the law regarding awards of sentence credit, revised administrative rules have been finalized and appear in the Illinois Register. Under the revised rules, review of offenders for an award of SSC is pursuant to 20 Ill. Adm. Code 107.210, "Awarding of Supplemental Sentence Credit."

For an offender to be eligible for an award of SSC, first and foremost, he or she must have served more than 60 days in IDOC custody and be serving a sentence for offenses that are not excluded from an award pursuant to Section 3-6-3(a)(3) of the Code of Corrections (730 ILCS 5/3-6-3(a)(3)). Additionally, some offenders, by the nature of their current commitment offenses, will only be eligible for up to 90 days of SSC pursuant to Section 3-6-3(a)(3) of the Code of Corrections.

There are additional administrative rule requirements that must be met in order for an offender to be eligible for an award of SSC. The offender:

must not be subject to review under the Sexually Violent Person's Act,
must not have been found guilty of a 100 level disciplinary offense (violated while in custody) under 20 Ill. Adm. Code 504,
must not have any pending criminal charges committed during the current incarceration,
must not have been returned to the Department for a violation of his or her parole or mandatory supervised release during their current incarceration,
must not have voluntarily quit or have been terminated for disciplinary reasons from a boot camp program,
if recommended by a court, must have completed substance abuse treatment or been waived from the requirement by the Department, and
must have completed mandatory sex offender treatment (if necessary) or been waived of the requirement by the Department (if applicable).
It is important to note that even if an offender is potentially eligible for an award of SSC, the offender should not and does not have an outright expectation to receive an award.

Potentially eligible offenders should have no expectation of receiving an SSC award because, beyond the eligibility requirements noted above, the Department has the discretion to consider numerous other factors before finding an offender suitable for an award of SSC. As such, the Department may examine and consider numerous things including, but not limited to:

The offender's complete master record file, including, but not limited to, sentencing material such as facts and circumstances of the holding offense, disciplinary records, and reports or recommendations made concerning the offender.
The offender's risk assessment analysis (if available).
The offender's history of conviction for violent crimes, as defined by the Rights of Crime Victims and Witnesses Act [725 ILCS 120].
The offender's assignment performance while in the custody of the Department.
The offender's educational or program performance and achievements while in the custody of the Department.
The offender's service to the Department, community, or State.
The heroic action of the offender, such as saving the life of an employee or other offender.
The offender's potential for rehabilitation.
The Department is working both carefully and diligently to review offenders for SSC pursuant to the above statutory eligibility requirements and comprehensive discretionary analysis.

For those with family or friends within IDOC we appreciate your patience as the Department works to safely and responsibly implement the SSC credit program. Because of the many factors the Department intends to consider for each potentially eligible offender, it is impossible for the Department to project whether or when any specific offender will receive an award of SSC credit. It is also not possible for the Department to respond to inquiries concerning an offender's likelihood of receiving an award of SSC due to the Department's policy that prevents the disclosure of confidential master record file information and criminal history. If an offender is projected to have a revised parole date as a result of an award of SSC, the inmate will be notified, and his or her time adjustment will be reflected on the IDOC website under the offender's profile in the Offender Search link.
