the rules and regulations shall also provide that the Director
may award up to 180 days of earned sentence credit for good
conduct in specific instances as the Director deems proper. The
good conduct may include, but is not limited to, compliance
with the rules and regulations of the Department, service to
the Department, service to a community, or service to the
State.
Eligible inmates for an award of earned sentence credit
under this paragraph (3) may be selected to receive the credit
at the Director's or his or her designee's sole discretion.
Eligibility for the additional earned sentence credit under
this paragraph (3) shall be based on, but is not limited to,
the results of any available risk/needs assessment or other
relevant assessments or evaluations administered by the
Department using a validated instrument, the circumstances of
the crime, any history of conviction for a forcible felony
enumerated in Section 2-8 of the Criminal Code of 2012, the
inmate's behavior and disciplinary history while incarcerated,
and the inmate's commitment to rehabilitation, including
participation in programming offered by the Department.
The Director shall not award sentence credit under this
paragraph (3) to an inmate unless the inmate has served a
minimum of 60 days of the sentence; except nothing in this
paragraph shall be construed to permit the Director to extend
an inmate's sentence beyond that which was imposed by the
court. Prior to awarding credit under this paragraph (3), the
Director shall make a written determination that the inmate:
(A) is eligible for the earned sentence credit;
(B) has served a minimum of 60 days, or as close to 60
days as the sentence will allow;
(B-1) has received a risk/needs assessment or other
relevant evaluation or assessment administered by the
Department using a validated instrument; and
(C) has met the eligibility criteria established by
rule for earned sentence credit.
The Director shall determine the form and content of the
written determination required in this subsection.
(3.5) The Department shall provide annual written reports
to the Governor and the General Assembly on the award of earned
sentence credit no later than February 1 of each year. The
Department must publish both reports on its website within 48
hours of transmitting the reports to the Governor and the
General Assembly. The reports must include:
(A) the number of inmates awarded earned sentence
credit;
(B) the average amount of earned sentence credit
awarded;
(C) the holding offenses of inmates awarded earned
sentence credit; and
(D) the number of earned sentence credit revocations.
(4)(A) Except as provided in paragraph (4.7) of this
subsection (a), the rules and regulations shall also provide
that the sentence credit accumulated and retained under
paragraph (2.1) of subsection (a) of this Section by any inmate
during specific periods of time in which such inmate is engaged
full-time in substance abuse programs, correctional industry
assignments, educational programs, behavior modification
programs, life skills courses, or re-entry planning provided by
the Department under this paragraph (4) and satisfactorily
completes the assigned program as determined by the standards
of the Department, shall be multiplied by a factor of 1.25 for
program participation before August 11, 1993 and 1.50 for
program participation on or after that date. The rules and
regulations shall also provide that sentence credit, subject to
the same offense limits and multiplier provided in this
paragraph, may be provided to an inmate who was held in
pre-trial detention prior to his or her current commitment to
the Department of Corrections and successfully completed a
full-time, 60-day or longer substance abuse program,
educational program, behavior modification program, life
skills course, or re-entry planning provided by the county
department of corrections or county jail. Calculation of this
county program credit shall be done at sentencing as provided
in Section 5-4.5-100 of this Code and shall be included in the
sentencing order. However, no inmate shall be eligible for the
additional sentence credit under this paragraph (4) or (4.1) of
this subsection (a) while assigned to a boot camp or electronic
detention.
(B) The Department shall award sentence credit under this
paragraph (4) accumulated prior to the effective date of this
amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly in an amount
specified in subparagraph (C) of this paragraph (4) to an
inmate serving a sentence for an offense committed prior to
June 19, 1998, if the Department determines that the inmate is
entitled to this sentence credit, based upon:
(i) documentation provided by the Department that the
inmate engaged in any full-time substance abuse programs,
correctional industry assignments, educational programs,
behavior modification programs, life skills courses, or
re-entry planning provided by the Department under this
paragraph (4) and satisfactorily completed the assigned
program as determined by the standards of the Department
during the inmate's current term of incarceration; or
(ii) the inmate's own testimony in the form of an
affidavit or documentation, or a third party's
documentation or testimony in the form of an affidavit that
the inmate likely engaged in any full-time substance abuse
programs, correctional industry assignments, educational
programs, behavior modification programs, life skills
courses, or re-entry planning provided by the Department
under paragraph (4) and satisfactorily completed the
assigned program as determined by the standards of the
Department during the inmate's current term of
incarceration.
(C) If the inmate can provide documentation that he or she
is entitled to sentence credit under subparagraph (B) in excess
of 45 days of participation in those programs, the inmate shall
receive 90 days of sentence credit. If the inmate cannot
provide documentation of more than 45 days of participation
those programs, the inmate shall receive 45 days of sentence
credit. In the event of a disagreement between the Department
and the inmate as to the amount of credit accumulated under
subparagraph (B), if the Department provides documented proof
of a lesser amount of days of participation in those programs,
that proof shall control. If the Department provides no
documentary proof, the inmate's proof as set forth in clause
(ii) of subparagraph (B) shall control as to the amount of
sentence credit provided.
(D) If the inmate has been convicted of a sex offense as
defined in Section 2 of the Sex Offender Registration Act,
sentencing credits under subparagraph (B) of this paragraph (4)
shall be awarded by the Department only if the conditions set
forth in paragraph (4.6) of subsection (a) are satisfied. No
inmate serving a term of natural life imprisonment shall
receive sentence credit under subparagraph (B) of this
paragraph (4).
Educational, vocational, substance abuse, behavior
modification programs, life skills courses, re-entry planning,
and correctional industry programs under which sentence credit
may be increased under this paragraph (4) and paragraph (4.1)
of this subsection (a) shall be evaluated by the Department on
the basis of documented standards. The Department shall report
the results of these evaluations to the Governor and the
General Assembly by September 30th of each year. The reports
shall include data relating to the recidivism rate among
program participants.
Availability of these programs shall be subject to the
limits of fiscal resources appropriated by the General Assembly
for these purposes. Eligible inmates who are denied immediate
admission shall be placed on a waiting list under criteria
established by the Department. The inability of any inmate to
become engaged in any such programs by reason of insufficient
program resources or for any other reason established under the
rules and regulations of the Department shall not be deemed a
cause of action under which the Department or any employee or
agent of the Department shall be liable for damages to the
inmate.
(4.1) Except as provided in paragraph (4.7) of this
subsection (a), the rules and regulations shall also provide
that an additional 90 days of sentence credit shall be awarded
to any prisoner who passes high school equivalency testing
while the prisoner is committed to the Department of
Corrections. The sentence credit awarded under this paragraph
(4.1) shall be in addition to, and shall not affect, the award
of sentence credit under any other paragraph of this Section,
but shall also be pursuant to the guidelines and restrictions
set forth in paragraph (4) of subsection (a) of this Section.
The sentence credit provided for in this paragraph shall be
available only to those prisoners who have not previously
earned a high school diploma or a high school equivalency
certificate. If, after an award of the high school equivalency
testing sentence credit has been made, the Department
determines that the prisoner was not eligible, then the award
shall be revoked. The Department may also award 90 days of
sentence credit to any committed person who passed high school
equivalency testing while he or she was held in pre-trial
detention prior to the current commitment to the Department of
Corrections.
Except as provided in paragraph (4.7) of this subsection
(a), the rules and regulations shall provide that an additional
180 days of sentence credit shall be awarded to any prisoner
who obtains a bachelor's degree while the prisoner is committed
to the Department of Corrections. The sentence credit awarded
under this paragraph (4.1) shall be in addition to, and shall
not affect, the award of sentence credit under any other
paragraph of this Section, but shall also be under the
guidelines and restrictions set forth in paragraph (4) of this
subsection (a). The sentence credit provided for in this
paragraph shall be available only to those prisoners who have
not earned a bachelor's degree prior to the current commitment
to the Department of Corrections. If, after an award of the
bachelor's degree sentence credit has been made, the Department
determines that the prisoner was not eligible, then the award
shall be revoked. The Department may also award 180 days of
sentence credit to any committed person who earned a bachelor's
degree while he or she was held in pre-trial detention prior to
the current commitment to the Department of Corrections.
Except as provided in paragraph (4.7) of this subsection
(a), the rules and regulations shall provide that an additional
180 days of sentence credit shall be awarded to any prisoner
who obtains a master's or professional degree while the
prisoner is committed to the Department of Corrections. The
sentence credit awarded under this paragraph (4.1) shall be in
addition to, and shall not affect, the award of sentence credit
under any other paragraph of this Section, but shall also be
under the guidelines and restrictions set forth in paragraph
(4) of this subsection (a). The sentence credit provided for in
this paragraph shall be available only to those prisoners who
have not previously earned a master's or professional degree
prior to the current commitment to the Department of
Corrections. If, after an award of the master's or professional
degree sentence credit has been made, the Department determines
that the prisoner was not eligible, then the award shall be
revoked. The Department may also award 180 days of sentence
credit to any committed person who earned a master's or
professional degree while he or she was held in pre-trial
detention prior to the current commitment to the Department of
Corrections.
(4.5) The rules and regulations on sentence credit shall
also provide that when the court's sentencing order recommends
a prisoner for substance abuse treatment and the crime was
committed on or after September 1, 2003 (the effective date of
Public Act 93-354), the prisoner shall receive no sentence
credit awarded under clause (3) of this subsection (a) unless
he or she participates in and completes a substance abuse
treatment program. The Director may waive the requirement to
participate in or complete a substance abuse treatment program
in specific instances if the prisoner is not a good candidate
for a substance abuse treatment program for medical,
programming, or operational reasons. Availability of substance
abuse treatment shall be subject to the limits of fiscal
resources appropriated by the General Assembly for these
purposes. If treatment is not available and the requirement to
participate and complete the treatment has not been waived by
the Director, the prisoner shall be placed on a waiting list
under criteria established by the Department. The Director may
allow a prisoner placed on a waiting list to participate in and
complete a substance abuse education class or attend substance
abuse self-help meetings in lieu of a substance abuse treatment
program. A prisoner on a waiting list who is not placed in a
substance abuse program prior to release may be eligible for a
waiver and receive sentence credit under clause (3) of this
subsection (a) at the discretion of the Director.
(4.6) The rules and regulations on sentence credit shall
also provide that a prisoner who has been convicted of a sex
offense as defined in Section 2 of the Sex Offender
Registration Act shall receive no sentence credit unless he or
she either has successfully completed or is participating in
sex offender treatment as defined by the Sex Offender
Management Board. However, prisoners who are waiting to receive
treatment, but who are unable to do so due solely to the lack
of resources on the part of the Department, may, at the
Director's sole discretion, be awarded sentence credit at a
rate as the Director shall determine.
(4.7) On or after the effective date of this amendatory Act
of the 100th General Assembly, sentence credit under paragraph
(3), (4), or (4.1) of this subsection (a) may be awarded to a
prisoner who is serving a sentence for an offense described in
paragraph (2), (2.3), (2.4), (2.5), or (2.6) for credit earned
on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the
100th General Assembly; provided, the award of the credits
under this paragraph (4.7) shall not reduce the sentence of the
prisoner to less than the following amounts:
(i) 85% of his or her sentence if the prisoner is
required to serve 85% of his or her sentence; or
(ii) 60% of his or her sentence if the prisoner is
required to serve 75% of his or her sentence, except if the
prisoner is serving a sentence for gunrunning his or her
sentence shall not be reduced to less than 75%.
(iii) 100% of his or her sentence if the prisoner is
required to serve 100% of his or her sentence. This
paragraph (4.7) shall not apply to a prisoner serving a
sentence for an offense described in subparagraph (i) of
paragraph (2) of this subsection (a).
(5) Whenever the Department is to release any inmate
earlier than it otherwise would because of a grant of earned
sentence credit under paragraph (3) of subsection (a) of this
Section given at any time during the term, the Department shall
give reasonable notice of the impending release not less than
14 days prior to the date of the release to the State's
Attorney of the county where the prosecution of the inmate took
place, and if applicable, the State's Attorney of the county
into which the inmate will be released. The Department must
also make identification information and a recent photo of the
inmate being released accessible on the Internet by means of a
hyperlink labeled "Community Notification of Inmate Early
Release" on the Department's World Wide Web homepage. The
identification information shall include the inmate's: name,
any known alias, date of birth, physical characteristics,
commitment offense and county where conviction was imposed. The
identification information shall be placed on the website
within 3 days of the inmate's release and the information may
not be removed until either: completion of the first year of
mandatory supervised release or return of the inmate to custody
of the Department.
(b) Whenever a person is or has been committed under
several convictions, with separate sentences, the sentences
shall be construed under Section 5-8-4 in granting and
forfeiting of sentence credit.
(c) The Department shall prescribe rules and regulations
for revoking sentence credit, including revoking sentence
credit awarded under paragraph (3) of subsection (a) of this
Section. The Department shall prescribe rules and regulations
for suspending or reducing the rate of accumulation of sentence
credit for specific rule violations, during imprisonment.
These rules and regulations shall provide that no inmate may be
penalized more than one year of sentence credit for any one
infraction.
When the Department seeks to revoke, suspend or reduce the
rate of accumulation of any sentence credits for an alleged
infraction of its rules, it shall bring charges therefor
against the prisoner sought to be so deprived of sentence
credits before the Prisoner Review Board as provided in
subparagraph (a)(4) of Section 3-3-2 of this Code, if the
amount of credit at issue exceeds 30 days or when during any 12
month period, the cumulative amount of credit revoked exceeds
30 days except where the infraction is committed or discovered
within 60 days of scheduled release. In those cases, the
Department of Corrections may revoke up to 30 days of sentence
credit. The Board may subsequently approve the revocation of
additional sentence credit, if the Department seeks to revoke
sentence credit in excess of 30 days. However, the Board shall
not be empowered to review the Department's decision with
respect to the loss of 30 days of sentence credit within any
calendar year for any prisoner or to increase any penalty
beyond the length requested by the Department.
The Director of the Department of Corrections, in
appropriate cases, may restore up to 30 days of sentence
credits which have been revoked, suspended or reduced. Any
restoration of sentence credits in excess of 30 days shall be
subject to review by the Prisoner Review Board. However, the
Board may not restore sentence credit in excess of the amount
requested by the Director.
Nothing contained in this Section shall prohibit the
Prisoner Review Board from ordering, pursuant to Section
3-3-9(a)(3)(i)(B), that a prisoner serve up to one year of the
sentence imposed by the court that was not served due to the
accumulation of sentence credit.
(d) If a lawsuit is filed by a prisoner in an Illinois or
federal court against the State, the Department of Corrections,
or the Prisoner Review Board, or against any of their officers
or employees, and the court makes a specific finding that a
pleading, motion, or other paper filed by the prisoner is
frivolous, the Department of Corrections shall conduct a
hearing to revoke up to 180 days of sentence credit by bringing
charges against the prisoner sought to be deprived of the
sentence credits before the Prisoner Review Board as provided
in subparagraph (a)(8) of Section 3-3-2 of this Code. If the
prisoner has not accumulated 180 days of sentence credit at the
time of the finding, then the Prisoner Review Board may revoke
all sentence credit accumulated by the prisoner.
For purposes of this subsection (d):
(1) "Frivolous" means that a pleading, motion, or other
filing which purports to be a legal document filed by a
prisoner in his or her lawsuit meets any or all of the
following criteria:
(A) it lacks an arguable basis either in law or in
fact;
(B) it is being presented for any improper purpose,
such as to harass or to cause unnecessary delay or
needless increase in the cost of litigation;
(C) the claims, defenses, and other legal
contentions therein are not warranted by existing law
or by a nonfrivolous argument for the extension,
modification, or reversal of existing law or the
establishment of new law;
(D) the allegations and other factual contentions
do not have evidentiary support or, if specifically so
identified, are not likely to have evidentiary support
after a reasonable opportunity for further
investigation or discovery; or
(E) the denials of factual contentions are not
warranted on the evidence, or if specifically so
identified, are not reasonably based on a lack of
information or belief.
(2) "Lawsuit" means a motion pursuant to Section 116-3
of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963, a habeas corpus
action under Article X of the Code of Civil Procedure or
under federal law (28 U.S.C. 2254), a petition for claim
under the Court of Claims Act, an action under the federal
Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. 1983), or a second or
subsequent petition for post-conviction relief under
Article 122 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963
whether filed with or without leave of court or a second or
subsequent petition for relief from judgment under Section
2-1401 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
(e) Nothing in Public Act 90-592 or 90-593 affects the
validity of Public Act 89-404.
(f) Whenever the Department is to release any inmate who
has been convicted of a violation of an order of protection
under Section 12-3.4 or 12-30 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or
the Criminal Code of 2012, earlier than it otherwise would
because of a grant of sentence credit, the Department, as a
condition of release, shall require that the person, upon
release, be placed under electronic surveillance as provided in
Section 5-8A-7 of this Code.
