The way I read this law it only applies to those individuals convicted of the felonies listed and not all felonies.  Has this been the case or in practice does it apply to all felonies

(720 ILCS 5/12‑36)
    Sec. 12‑36. Possession of certain dogs by felons prohibited.
    (a) For a period of 10 years commencing upon the release of a person from incarceration, it is unlawful for a person convicted of a forcible felony, a felony violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act, a felony violation of Article 24 of the Criminal Code of 1961, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Cannabis Control Act, or a felony violation of Class 2 or higher of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, to knowingly own, possess, have custody of, or reside in a residence with,

But, what if you're not home?  Like at work or something?  Will your LO be penalized if you didn't know they were coming?

I am not sure what your follow up post meant since it is a duplicate of what you posted earlier.

The entire law is as follows:

(720 ILCS 5/12-36)
    Sec. 12-36. Possession of unsterilized or vicious dogs by felons prohibited.
    (a) For a period of 10 years commencing upon the release of a person from incarceration, it is unlawful for a person convicted of a forcible felony, a felony violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act, a felony violation of Section 26-5 or 48-1 of this Code, a felony violation of Article 24 of this Code, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, a felony violation of Class 3 or higher of the Cannabis Control Act, or a felony violation of Class 2 or higher of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, to knowingly own, possess, have custody of, or reside in a residence with, either:
        (1) an unspayed or unneutered dog or puppy older than
       
12 weeks of age; or
        (2) irrespective of whether the dog has been spayed
       
or neutered, any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.
    (b) Any dog owned, possessed by, or in the custody of a person convicted of a felony, as described in subsection (a), must be microchipped for permanent identification.
    (c) Sentence. A person who violates this Section is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
    (d) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this Section that the dog in question is neutered or spayed, or that the dog in question was neutered or spayed within 7 days of the defendant being charged with a violation of this Section. Medical records from, or the certificate of, a doctor of veterinary medicine licensed to practice in the State of Illinois who has personally examined or operated upon the dog, unambiguously indicating whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered, shall be prima facie true and correct, and shall be sufficient evidence of whether the dog in question has been spayed or neutered. This subsection (d) is not applicable to any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.
(Source: P.A. 96-185, eff. 1-1-10; 97-1108, eff. 1-1-13.)

I was wondering if others on this board had the same issues with LO released to their home if their LO's have a felony conviction for crimes other than highlighted in the above law.  Say for example aggravated DUI or leaving the scene of an accident.

My son was convicted of leaving the scene of an accident and we have 3 small dogs at home.  One is his old friend and companion.  We are planning on our son staying with us until he gets back on his feet and wondering if the 3 small dogs will be an issue.

Anybody have any similar experiences??

Thanks

Our son's dog died in November.  It was an elderly german shepherd/hound mix. 

However, we have elected not to get another dog until our son is released.

trauma4us i am sorry for all of you and especially your son not being able to be there.  I know i have found it very hard to continue to do things without having my son with us.  I have found no one that hasn't been thru the court system understands the loss love ones go thru.  God Bless

Back at you Father.  We visited yesterday - it was our son's 32nd birthday.  He's been incarcerated over 3.5 years now - almost halfway there!

We are fortunate we can visit often

Father, don't think your son is going to have a problem UNLESS the PO he gets causes one .. his conviction for DUI isn't listed in what I posted back to you.  As long as the dogs are fixed and then again it depends on the PO and it's only for certain dogs.

Sometimes a PO will not show up if this is the inmates home (where he lived before) and he doesn't have to get approval from anyone.

If they need prior approval, they will call and set up a time to come and check. If you are not home, they will continue to check, trust me, they'll get an approval if needed before the inmate is out, but sometimes they don't need prior approval.

Thanks Mah,that was reassuring. I am so worried that they may show up and  I am at work 10 hours a day and they will not approve or they will call me and I can not answer because I am working and they will not approve. My landlord did the lease with my name and my sons name on it and I sent a copy to my son so I hope that helps. He is hearing stories that the PO went to homes and no one was there and they denied the site.  This is my stressing point right now.

Forevermah, you mention " certain dogs", I can not find anywhere what breed specifically they are regarding this to. The information you sent also does not explain it in depth.

Do you know where I can find this specific list of breeds? Because what's considered a dangerous dog to one person to another it is not.

Hope to find some more clarification on this.

Rottweilers
German Shepherds
Presa Canarios
Chows Chows

We are expecting our son home from an IDOC facility with the next few weeks. I was reading over the “Host Site Agreement” we were given and have quite a few questions with nowhere to get answers. I am hoping someone here can help me out. On the form it says we cannot permit “unauthorized” prescription drugs in the home. That begs the question, authorized by whom. My doctor, the parole agent, IDOC?  It really doesn’t say. As a cardiac patient and some wine who has had 5 back surgeries, I have (get) numerous prescriptions each month, one of them considered to be a narcotic. Who do I send the list to to get “authorized?”

Also, as an Marine and former police officer, I am an avid reloaded of ammunition. I know that as soon as my son gets here my Second Ammendment rights go out the window. That’s fine as my son is more important. I am wondering if the bullet and/or brass for reloading is a violation. The powder, an explosive, and the primers have been moved. But what the bullet and brass?

Is there an IDOC number or email I can use to get answers to these and other questions?  I hate to bother the awesome people in this forum I am sure you have much better things to do than answer questions from me.

When is he being released? Is he going to be on electronic monitoring at all? What county do you reside in? Hopefully not Cook. Has he submitted his host site approval to the prison he’s at yet? If yes, call 1-800-666-6744 they’ll ask for his IDOC number and you can request a call back from the agent for your questions. If he’s not going to have EHM, then they may not do a home site visit and just approve it. Then when he comes home, they’ll come for his initial visit and give you the form and I would suggest asking then and he’ll give you a few days to comply. You don’t want to ask too much and rude them denying the site. The brass and bar Ortiz’s screams red flag to me.

Did a PO come out and talk to you?  If and when they do, ask them these questions, someone will be out the night he is released from prison and you can verify then.  The biggest thing is you moved all the firearms and ammunition.


You have to have your medication, keep it away from your son if you think it will be a problem.
