Question Intro--M&M78 from Illinois

Hi Im new to this and have so many questions my love just went into receiving to graham on Friday so first question when will I be able to talk to him ? Second question on the IDOC page it says 2021 how do they determine that and is there a way that it will change ? Like what about good time and if he goes to southwestern I heard he will get time knocked off for that is that true ?

Welcome to Prison Talk. Here's a link to the Illinois DOC's frequently asked questions.

and one from IL Legal Aid about visiting and contacting prisoners.

To meet other members who also have loved ones locked up there, check the PTO Illinois prison forums, and ask your questions there.

Hi there. Graham is Receiving and Classification. If he is there more than 30 days, he may get a phone call. You can write to him though. Be aware that IDOC has now changed the addresses of prisons, no more PO boxes - its now a street address.

No guarantees about placement - its the luck of the draw most times. As to "good time" - depends on many variables. Not everyone that goes SWIC gets "good time."

Best wishes
