Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that a prisoner who is serving a term of imprisonment for first degree murder shall receive no more than 7.5 days of sentence credit for each month of his or her sentence of imprisonment (rather than a prisoner receiving no sentence credit). Increases the maximum amount of sentence credit that a prisoner may receive for various offenses from 4.5 to 8.5 (from 7.5 to 10.5 for gunrunning, drug-induced homicide, or aggravated methamphetamine-related child endangerment) days of sentence credit for each month of his or her sentence of imprisonment. Provides that prisoners sentenced before the effective date of the amendatory Act may receive the additional sentence credit provided by the amendatory Act for their service of imprisonment on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act. Provides that nothing in the amendatory Act shall be construed to permit the award of any additional sentence credit provided in the amendatory Act for any service of imprisonment before the effective date of the amendatory Act.
