Default Corrections Begins Awarding "Good Time" off inmates' sentences

Corrections begins awarding 'good time' off inmates' sentences



By Jamey Dunn

The Illinois Department of Corrections has begun awarding inmates time off of their sentences under a good-time credit law approved last year.

“After careful review, the department has begun to provisionally award supplemental sentence credit to approximately 12 eligible inmates. These provisional awards will become final awards of sentence credit near an inmate’s parole date. The department continues to review inmate files and will award credit to eligible low-level inmates as appropriate after careful and thoughtful review,” said a written statement from the DoC. So far, no inmates have been released early under the program.

Oh man....they released a whopping 12 people! This part is just rumor but my fiance says that supposedly they're going to start revising the rules since they're so strict that only 12 inmates have been eligible so far and it does nothing for the overcrowding. I don't know how true it is, but they should do something and fast! This overcrowding is ridiculous! I can't wait till this is over
