A bit back I was asking about the all white gym shoes.  I was recently asked by my son if I could send him some.  I did find some - Adidas Original Stan Smith 2 (I was able to order these on line through footlocker to have them shipped there directly).  I got the first call from my son since he went into the system back at the end of May.  He was shipped out of Joliet just after the 30 day waiting period there and his pin had been declined so we have had to wait the new 30 day time period.  He said he just got them and they are wonderful.

I hope this helps someone else.

It usually only takes a week or less, once a bed opens up, just keep checking the IDOC website every evening after 9PM, that is when they update the site.   Good Luck, hope he arrives soon.

I would also suggest registering with VINE -they will notify you when your Loved One is ever moved. You can find the Vine info on this website & IDOC site. Hope all works out for you and your son. Angela

So I know its been awhile since I've posted I've been so busy...my boyfriend 120 days is up in 13 days!!! :( but 2 weeks ago he told me that a workcrew van he was on got searched and they found a pack of cigarettes and I guess everyone on that van got an extra 28 days added on to their sentence becuz the person who did it didn't confess to it....I haven't gotten a letter from him last week or this week which is odd becuz I always get letters on Wednesdays...I was just wondering can they do that and if anyone else who has a loved one in DuQuion has heard anythinng about it.?

Yes, they can do this, extend their time for any trouble they get into.  That is why the BC is 120-180 days.   

As far as the letters, that's hard to tell, maybe all those guys on the workcrew got some other kind of restrictions put on them, hopefully you will get a letter soon explaining it all.

My son mentioned(on Saturday) that some of the other guys had got into trouble over some cigarettes.I was so thankful that he was not involved. He lost phone privileges for 1 month because of someone not following the rules .He wasn't even at the camp he was out on one of the work crews. Imagine being out in the hot heat working then coming back to find out you have no phone privilege because of someone being stupid and not thinking.These are just a few examples of what they can do to our LO's.It is a tough Program,but can be done if they follow the rules. I know that I am still going on my visit on Saturday,so maybe I can find out what happened. Good Luck.
PS.Not sure why you aren't getting any letter's I got mine this week. Maybe he is having trouble adjusting?

I hate all this not knowing, in his letter Thursday he said he would call today and he didn't I guess they took away phone calls he always calls I'm just so tired....some days I feel like giving up...does anyone know of their outdated is the same as their graduation date? Or do they only hold the graduations like once or twice a week

Hot off the Press   :wc1:  Graduations take place at the end of their(inmates) time. I was under the impression that Graduations are usually on Saturday's...Not True. They leave when they have completed the program. This could be any day of the week.Their Outdate is not the same as their graduation.Unless they do something to jeopardize it. They have to complete the program between 120 to 160 days. NO ands ifs or Buts. Hope this helps you out some. Take Care.   :wc71:

Angela, it's not 160 days it's 120 - 180 days, giving them enough time to complete the program if things happen like sickness or they get into trouble.  I have copied this straight from the PDF file the IDOC:


The purpose of the program is to better serve the community and the youthful offender while helping to reduce an ever-increasing adult prison population. The IIP provides a positive, cost-effective 120- to 180-day sentencing alternative to traditional incarceration for adult felons between the ages of 17 and 35, with up to an eight-year sentence, who have been incarcerated not more than once previously.

Angela, I figured you knew, I just wanted to point it out, because someone new may get confused.  I do the same thing sometimes, just way too much to know and remember with IDOC.

I saw a few years back that people had said DuQuoin only allows pictures of immediate family. Is this still true today?

To my knowledge it doesn't matter who/what the picture is only that they are only allowed to have a certain number of photos at one time.They will be disciplined if they are found with more than what they are allowed. Hope this helps you out some.

Be careful when sending pictures, I would ask first.  DuQuoin only allowed 3 photos and they had to be of immediate family, otherwise the inmate could get into trouble.  Things usually don't change that often for these facilities.

If you find out that the rules have indeed changed, please post letting everyone know!
