yes, I've been there, but only as an attorney. Seemed like any other prison to me. You might get more answers in the Illinois forum.

I haven't been there either, but as I say, always err on the side of caution. Dress very modestly, and until you know how they are with affection, do a kiss before and after, but just hold hands during the visit. No matter what, don't talk back. Visiting is a privilege, not a right, and you're on their property. I hope all this doesn't sound scary or discouraging, usually COs are civil enough to us. There are a couple that are really nice, but most won't go beyond the usual pleasantries. Here are the general rules for when visiting any Illinois prison.

This is a late reply and you have probably already visited, but I have been there and found them to be VERY strict. As an example, I had an elderly woman with me who was going to see her step-son. They made her completely remove her dentures. Even though they were clearly cemented in and she struggled to remove them, the guard was unphased and basically said if you don't remove them you can't go in. Seeing as how we had driven several hours to get there and she is rarely able to go due to her health, I thought that was a little overboard.
