Default Work Release

Hi,

My boyfriend is going to try to get into work release soon and I have a few questions as does he. Do you still get good time when your in the work release program? He is going to try to get into Peoria or Southern, how long is the wait after he applys and gets approved? I know he had more questions but I can't not think of them now.

Thanks

Will have to look into that for you. I do know from Nick that you have to be within 2 years of your release date to be eligible. I'll let you know for sure what I find out.

Thanks. I tried to find out more stuff about in on IDOC but it just describes what the program is. I know you can't go if your a violent offender (although they will still let you apply for it). I have a friend with a violent offense and he applied for it(kind of crazy). I think he is going to talk to his counselor today so hopefully he can tell him some of this stuff.

In case anyone else was curious, my boyfriend found out from his counselor that you don't get good time for work release but they probably have programs you can do to get good time.

Work release is when you go to an Adult Transitional Center and you can work or go to school. They do take 20% of the money earned but the rest of the money goes into the bank for them. You get to get passes to come home after a certain about of days in there. They start out giving 6 hour passes and can earn up to 48 hour passes.
