Good morning I had read in your past post something about if you have a class x felony you have to apply directly to springfield. I was trying to see if you ever got the info on that. My LO will be under two years in feb. this is his first offense but he does have a class x armed violence. I have spoke to ppl who said he will qualify and some said he wont so idk

All he can do is apply and see what happens.. He may qualify, but because the ATC's only hold so many inmates and more guys apply than what they have room for, many are denied.  Good Luck to him! He can talk to his counselor about the whole process. Springfield is the one that approves them.

They will be told after Springfield approves them.

Hello!
My BF just got moved to Stateville yesterday  to wait for an opening at Crossroads. Does anyone know how long the wait is & if they offer EHM still after 30 days? I know the post is old but I’m very curious to know. He mentioned someone who lest a week and a half ago is still waiting to be moved to Crossroads as well at Stateville so I’m starting to get anxious. Also, how does the phone situation work? Is it still payphones?wrekends at home still require home phone as well?!
Anything will help! Thanks I’m advance!

Hi Celibellie

I have attached a link to the JCAR site that discusses the levels and the associated privileges with each level.  I don't have any specific information how the going on's at each work release facility.  I have heard that you cannot have MP3 players, nor individual televisions and that you bunk in groups of 20.  But not for sure.

I do know that the warden at each facility has to approve you, than Springfield has to approve you and then you wait until a spot opens up.  I know of individuals that have waited 6 months to get into a work release facility after having been approved to go.

Hope this helps
