Customer Question

If an inmate saw the parole board on May 10, 2011 and was granted parole and is waiting on a "host site" verification to be released and it has already been 22 days, how long is it before he will be released?

No one can give you an exact date. The "host site" is where the inmate will be living when released. Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) will either visit the proposed host site or send forms in the mail that must be returned to them, and they must approve the host site. They used to require a land line phone at the host site for the electronic monitoring, but most of the newer ankle bracelets operate on GPS.

Once the host site has been approved the inmate will be released from IDOC and must report immediately to the host site and cannot leave until his/her parole officer meets him there (usually within 72 hours).
