22    Assembly for these purposes. Eligible inmates who are

1    any other reason established under the rules and
2    regulations of the Department shall not be deemed a cause

5    inmate.
6        (4.1) The rules and regulations shall also provide that
7    an additional 60 days of good conduct credit shall be

11    under this paragraph (4.1) shall be in addition to, and
12    shall not affect, the award of good conduct under any other
13    paragraph of this Section, but shall also be pursuant to
14    the guidelines and restrictions set forth in paragraph (4)
15    of subsection (a) of this Section. The good conduct credit
16    provided for in this paragraph shall be available only to
17    those prisoners who have not previously earned a high
18    school diploma or a GED. If, after an award of the GED good
19    conduct credit has been made and the Department determines
20    that the prisoner was not eligible, then the award shall be
21    revoked.
22        (4.5) The rules and regulations on early release shall
23    also provide that when the court's sentencing order
24    recommends a prisoner for substance abuse treatment and the
25    crime was committed on or after September 1, 2003 (the

SB1341 Engrossed- 14 -LRB097 07073 RLC 47166 b

1    receive no good conduct credit awarded under clause (3) of
2    this subsection (a) unless he or she participates in and
3    completes a substance abuse treatment program. The
4    Director may waive the requirement to participate in or
5    complete a substance abuse treatment program and award the
6    good conduct credit in specific instances if the prisoner
7    is not a good candidate for a substance abuse treatment
8    program for medical, programming, or operational reasons.
9    Availability of substance abuse treatment shall be subject
10    to the limits of fiscal resources appropriated by the
11    General Assembly for these purposes. If treatment is not
12    available and the requirement to participate and complete
13    the treatment has not been waived by the Director, the
14    prisoner shall be placed on a waiting list under criteria
15    established by the Department. The Director may allow a
16    prisoner placed on a waiting list to participate in and
17    complete a substance abuse education class or attend
18    substance abuse self-help meetings in lieu of a substance
19    abuse treatment program. A prisoner on a waiting list who
20    is not placed in a substance abuse program prior to release
21    may be eligible for a waiver and receive good conduct
22    credit under clause (3) of this subsection (a) at the
23    discretion of the Director.
24        (4.6) The rules and regulations on early release shall
25    also provide that a prisoner who has been convicted of a

2    unless he or she either has successfully completed or is
3    participating in sex offender treatment as defined by the
4    Sex Offender Management Board. However, prisoners who are
5    waiting to receive such treatment, but who are unable to do
6    so due solely to the lack of resources on the part of the
7    Department, may, at the Director's sole discretion, be
8    awarded good conduct credit at such rate as the Director
9    shall determine.
10        (5) Whenever the Department is to release any inmate
11    earlier than it otherwise would because of a grant of good
12    conduct credit for meritorious service given at any time
13    during the term, the Department shall give reasonable
14    notice of the impending release not less than 14 days prior
15    to the date of the release to the State's Attorney of the
16    county where the prosecution of the inmate took place, and
17    if applicable, the State's Attorney of the county into
18    which the inmate will be released. The Department must also
19    make identification information and a recent photo of the
20    inmate being released accessible on the Internet by means
21    of a hyperlink labeled "Community Notification of Inmate
22    Early Release" on the Department's World Wide Web homepage.

7several convictions, with separate sentences, the sentences
8shall be construed under Section 5-8-4 in granting and
9forfeiting of good time.
10    (c) The Department shall prescribe rules and regulations
11for revoking good conduct credit, or suspending or reducing the
12rate of accumulation of good conduct credit for specific rule
13violations, during imprisonment. These rules and regulations
14shall provide that no inmate may be penalized more than one
15year of good conduct credit for any one infraction.
16    When the Department seeks to revoke, suspend or reduce the
17rate of accumulation of any good conduct credits for an alleged
18infraction of its rules, it shall bring charges therefor
19against the prisoner sought to be so deprived of good conduct
20credits before the Prisoner Review Board as provided in
21subparagraph (a)(4) of Section 3-3-2 of this Code, if the
22amount of credit at issue exceeds 30 days or when during any 12
23month period, the cumulative amount of credit revoked exceeds
2430 days except where the infraction is committed or discovered

26Department of Corrections may revoke up to 30 days of good

3seeks to revoke good conduct credit in excess of 30 days.
4However, the Board shall not be empowered to review the
5Department's decision with respect to the loss of 30 days of
6good conduct credit within any calendar year for any prisoner
7or to increase any penalty beyond the length requested by the
8Department.
