Question In SHU for trumped up charges, need an attorney in Illinois

My son is in Greenville, Il and is in the SHU for trumped up charges and could get time added on plus go to a UPS and since he is a sex offender he will get killed. He has been beaten up twice in county and then Pekin.

Need an attorney to defend him. Any suggestions? Also need suggestions for in person support groups for families of loved ones in prison.

I know that you're most likely pretty frustrated & angry, but if its inside charges an attorney isn't going to be able to defend your son. Your son has to file grievances & appeals himself. I'm sorry, I truly am, but its their house, their rules.

As for moving your son from a state facility to a Federal one, won't happen. Can't happen unless your son's charges are outside charges at the Federal level.

....and, as for being a sex offender, there are so many in every prison system these days that it really isn't all that bad. Most inmates just want to do their time and go home.

Don't take this wrong, and please don't be offended, but is it possible that your son is being a stinker ....hence the getting beaten & charges. I had to ask because some parents are over-the-top over-protective whose kids can do no wrong and in the meantime the kid's behavior is pretty bad.

If I may ask, how old is your son & how long has he been incarcerated?

I hope things turn out ok & your son is allowed out of the SHU asap. Welcome to PTO
