I could be wrong, but I think Good Time isn't given until the class / program is completed and passed.

There’s got to be more to this it doesn’t make sense. Def have him file a grievance and try calling his counselor to find out why. Is he now in seg, c graded or lost any privileges??? What facility is he at if you don’t mind me asking? You can message that to me if you don’t want to post on here

I am sorry this happened to your fiancé. It's possible this could happen for no reason- it doesn't make sense to us, but it's typical for doc.
Has he gotten an official notice stating he earned those 45 days? Did he include that document in his grievance? How did he learn they took away his time? Did he try sending his grievance to Springfield directly?

He is in Sheridan and they gave him a response and said he did not receive a C or better and he has his grade paper showing he received a C. He keeps trying to get the counselor to assist with this and not doing anything. No he hasn’t been in trouble nor lost any privileges. If he would have received this he would be home in 22 days. I’m not sure what else can be done. Still waiting on this last contract date to change in the system, how long does that normally take for the date to update after a contract is turned in?

Usually about a week. But with the holiday maybe a few more. Have you contacted the wardens office? I hope he’s raising hell about this since he has the paper. I hope it gets rectified this week. If not you wanna start making calls to Springfield. Try the office of constituent services too. Contact the JHA. Squeaky wheel gets the oil with IDOC.

His last one took about two weeks to change in the system so I am hoping it’s changed this week since it was turned in on the 12th. It’s worrying me. Can you send me in a message the info you are saying to contact to fight more for this one he lost?

For this one contract of 45 days yes and they are saying he didn’t pass with a C or better and he has the papers to prove he did. This was in October

For the other contract it was submitted on November 12th and this was not supposed to be lost.
