You can go to this link:  https://www.illinois.gov/idoc/Offender/Pages/CommunityNotificationofInmateEarlyRelease.aspx  and see all the people that have been released with Supplemental Sentence Credit, click on their ID #'s and look at their in date, out date & if they had previously been in, including how many times.  That's the best way to know the way things are trending right now. Of course, you won't know how they got credit or for what, but it's an idea of how long.
He's home!
