mittimus - sentence length question
« on: December 16, 2016, 07:32:53 PM »
Good evening!
I've been reading to try to learn how all this works but still feel lost.
Is sharing a mittimus allowed?
We thought our loved one would have been home already (Summer 2016).
We thought 4 years would really be 2 years.
admission date is 6/2014
projected date is 10/2017
projected discharge date is 3 years to life - to be determined
sentencing info:  sentence 4 years.
Thank you in advance for any helpful responses.
Am sure you get the same questions over and over again.
Thanks,
Koko

It all depends on what the conviction was and if it was at 50% or 85% conviction rate.    It looks like maybe he had an 85% conviction?

It sounds like your L/O has to serve the 85%. The 3 years to life -to be determined is what my L/o has too. . It may be wise to speak with the field services or records office of his facility to ask why the 3 years to life.

Hello Forevermah and Falcon,

Thank you for responding I really appreciate it.
Should I ask the records department at the facility if he is in for  50% or 85%?

Thanks,
Koko

I would say the records office or his counselor should have that information.

I replied on your other post, but they’ll calculate the crecitbtime for your house arrest right away when you get to receiving and you’ll know your projected out date then.

My husband was sentenced to IDOC 1/18/19. Non violent Non sex crime. He has to serve 50% of sentence and has 3 days credit from county jail. Am I looking at him serving a whole year still?

MHerring- hell do 50% of the year sentence. So 6 months plus he’ll get credit for county time. If he’s been moved to his parent prison you can look him up on the IDOC inmate locator and it will show his out date.

He was actually sentenced to 2 years with only having to serve 50% of the 2 year sentence, so am I still looking at him serving a whole year then?

If you go to the IDOC offender search web site it will tell you his parole date. 

A 2 year sentence at 50% means he will have to serve 1 year minus any time in he was held in jail.  He will also be eligible for programming credits and ESDC.

It's a typo, it's EDSC Earned Discretionary Sentence Credit. Just type in EDSC in the search box here and you'll find plenty of info on it.
