IDOC MGT, Good Time Credits have not Changed!

May 31, 2012, State Legislature passes new law paving way for Early Release programs! Read latest at http://richardwanke.com

 

Don’t be confused! There is no change concerning the review process for IDOC early release for most IDOC inmates. In July 2010, IDOC began releasing individuals who it states were approved for Early Release prior to January 2010. IDOC has set up a public notification page on it’s website listing names and (unfortunately) the addresses and offense information for all inmates that it is now releasing early because they were approved for Good Time credits before the program was suspended. All you inmates out there who were lucky enough to be approved before the suspension know who you are and have been waiting impatiently to be released. Sources within IDOC say there may be a backlog of up to three years worth of pre-approved individuals awaiting their release. Meanwhile, for the rest of IDOC inmates, the Early Release programs remain suspended awaiting legislative action.  For the rest, there are no short-cuts and when Early Release rules are finally worked out, the release criteria and rules are likely to be tougher.

It is now January 2011, and the State Legislature just passed a IL state tax hike as well as approval to borrow money to pay it’s long overdue bills. In doing so, the State Legislature has begun to deal with the State’s fiscal crisis. A new legislature is now in session and there will be more political wrangling about working out the rest of the details on financial matters. IDOC issues and any reinstatement of MGT will be part of those financial matters because they have cost the state plenty, but they will not be a priority to the legislators. We still anticipate that no action is likely to occur for several months, perhaps in Spring 2011. Read our latest article about MGT here: Why Hoping MGT will Return in January “Won’t Make It So”

    The state says they are overpopulated in prisons and losing tons of money due to that fact but yet they still keep the ones who don’t deserve to suffer the same way (for example) as a murderer. My fiance’ is a first time offender and he is having to wonder how long it will be before he sees his kids?!! The state can’t be that ignorant, if you know what the problem is then why the hell can’t you fix it???? GIVE THE GOOD TIME BACK to the people who deserve it!

    It’s time the state found another way to punish non-violent offenders and those least likely to re offend. Ways that cost them and their families and not the tax payer. How about they are on house arrest with monitors including alcohol monitors that the family has to pay for? Then their support, medical, dental, food, clothing, etc is all on the family. It would save the family the money travelling to visit, phone bills, commissary, so it would be offset for them. The state could charge enough to make a profit on the monitors and the visits by parole officers. It’s time also to reward those least likely to re offend by giving them MGT. These are the ones who are trying to better themselves with education while incarcerated. They deserve to come home early. The ones making no attempt to do anything with their lives should stay put.

    The promise of Good time is a joke, in Statesville my loved one was told that if he went to the Rehab facility in East St Louis he would get 1/2 day for everyday. When he gets there after being backed up in Stateville,in that mess down there he is informed that being as this is not his first or second conviction he will not get any of that good time, even though he has never been through the treatment program. It has been one broken promise after another. Thats OK Gov Quin wont be long before the Class action law suits start for the tratement of inmates, lets see how that helps your budget? Too bad you won’t listen and look at what you are doing to all the people that put you in office.
