When in doubt, always call the mail room and just ask. Several prisons no longer allow playboy.

Hi I'm new here. My LO was in Stateville R&C for about a week I had sent him a letter the day he was transferred to Stateville and then another letter about a week before he was transferred to Illinois River facility. Anyone know how long it takes in Illinois river and if the letters I sent to Statesville will be forwarded to him?

Every facility is different regarding the processing of mail.  It is usually slower during the holidays due to CO's being on vacation.  Our son is in Taylorville and it takes up to 2 weeks from the time we mail items to him receiving them.  Yes the mail will be forwarded' but again don't expect it to be fast.

Happy New Year

Mamabone- my LO was at Stateville R&C and then transferred to Dixon the day I mailed him something. It took about a month for him to get it and he still has not received 2 books I sent there. It will for sure be slower due to holidays.
