SB1560 Engrossed- 12 -LRB097 07078 RLC 47171 b

3    good conduct credit under this paragraph (4) and has
4    subsequently been convicted of a felony, or (ii) has
5    previously served more than one prior sentence of
6    imprisonment for a felony in an adult correctional

8        Educational, vocational, substance abuse and

10    credit may be increased under this paragraph (4) and
11    paragraph (4.1) of this subsection (a) shall be evaluated
12    by the Department on the basis of documented standards. The
13    Department shall report the results of these evaluations to
14    the Governor and the General Assembly by September 30th of
15    each year. The reports shall include data relating to the
16    recidivism rate among program participants.
17        Availability of these programs shall be subject to the
18    limits of fiscal resources appropriated by the General
19    Assembly for these purposes. Eligible inmates who are
20    denied immediate admission shall be placed on a waiting
21    list under criteria established by the Department. The
22    inability of any inmate to become engaged in any such
23    programs by reason of insufficient program resources or for
24    any other reason established under the rules and
25    regulations of the Department shall not be deemed a cause
26    of action under which the Department or any employee or

 

 

SB1560 Engrossed- 13 -LRB097 07078 RLC 47171 b

1    agent of the Department shall be liable for damages to the

4    an additional 60 days of good conduct credit shall be

8    under this paragraph (4.1) shall be in addition to, and
9    shall not affect, the award of good conduct under any other
10    paragraph of this Section, but shall also be pursuant to
11    the guidelines and restrictions set forth in paragraph (4)
12    of subsection (a) of this Section. The good conduct credit
13    provided for in this paragraph shall be available only to
14    those prisoners who have not previously earned a high
15    school diploma or a GED. If, after an award of the GED good
16    conduct credit has been made and the Department determines
17    that the prisoner was not eligible, then the award shall be
18    revoked.
19        (4.5) The rules and regulations on early release shall
20    also provide that when the court's sentencing order
21    recommends a prisoner for substance abuse treatment and the
22    crime was committed on or after September 1, 2003 (the
23    effective date of Public Act 93-354), the prisoner shall
24    receive no good conduct credit awarded under clause (3) of
25    this subsection (a) unless he or she participates in and
26    completes a substance abuse treatment program. The

 

 

SB1560 Engrossed- 14 -LRB097 07078 RLC 47171 b

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

26    participating in sex offender treatment as defined by the

1    Sex Offender Management Board. However, prisoners who are
2    waiting to receive such treatment, but who are unable to do
3    so due solely to the lack of resources on the part of the
4    Department, may, at the Director's sole discretion, be
5    awarded good conduct credit at such rate as the Director
6    shall determine.
7        (5) Whenever the Department is to release any inmate
8    earlier than it otherwise would because of a grant of good
9    conduct credit for meritorious service given at any time
10    during the term, the Department shall give reasonable
11    notice of the impending release not less than 14 days prior
12    to the date of the release to the State's Attorney of the
13    county where the prosecution of the inmate took place, and
14    if applicable, the State's Attorney of the county into
15    which the inmate will be released. The Department must also
16    make identification information and a recent photo of the
17    inmate being released accessible on the Internet by means
18    of a hyperlink labeled "Community Notification of Inmate
19    Early Release" on the Department's World Wide Web homepage.
20    The identification information shall include the inmate's:
21    name, any known alias, date of birth, physical
22    characteristics, residence address, commitment offense and
23    county where conviction was imposed. The identification
24    information shall be placed on the website within 3 days of

4several convictions, with separate sentences, the sentences
5shall be construed under Section 5-8-4 in granting and
6forfeiting of good time.
7    (c) The Department shall prescribe rules and regulations
8for revoking good conduct credit, including revoking good
9conduct credit awarded for meritorious service under paragraph
10(3) of subsection (a) of this Section, or suspending or
11reducing the rate of accumulation of good conduct credit for
12specific rule violations, during imprisonment. These rules and
13regulations shall provide that no inmate may be penalized more
14than one year of good conduct credit for any one infraction.
15    When the Department seeks to revoke, suspend or reduce the
16rate of accumulation of any good conduct credits for an alleged
17infraction of its rules, it shall bring charges therefor
18against the prisoner sought to be so deprived of good conduct
19credits before the Prisoner Review Board as provided in
20subparagraph (a)(4) of Section 3-3-2 of this Code, if the
21amount of credit at issue exceeds 30 days or when during any 12
22month period, the cumulative amount of credit revoked exceeds
2330 days except where the infraction is committed or discovered
24within 60 days of scheduled release. In those cases, the
25Department of Corrections may revoke up to 30 days of good
26conduct credit. The Board may subsequently approve the

 

 

SB1560 Engrossed- 17 -LRB097 07078 RLC 47171 b

1revocation of additional good conduct credit, if the Department
2seeks to revoke good conduct credit in excess of 30 days.
3However, the Board shall not be empowered to review the
4Department's decision with respect to the loss of 30 days of
5good conduct credit within any calendar year for any prisoner
6or to increase any penalty beyond the length requested by the
7Department.
8    The Director of the Department of Corrections, in
9appropriate cases, may restore up to 30 days good conduct
