My fiance was recently sentenced in Illinois and run/death.

Customer Question
My fiance was recently sentenced...
My fiance was recently sentenced in Illinois for hit and run/death. His sentence was 4 years with a recommendation for bootcamp which he would only be required to serve the 120 days. He was taken to Stateville Correction facility for processing. While he was there waiting for a bed for the bootcamp program he was given several jobs to perform. There was an incident where he was asked to clean a toilet filled with feces and vomit and he asked for a mask and gloves. The correction officer became very upset with him and asked another inmate to do the job. They then locked him down 24/7 and he believes that he was removed from the bootcamp program because in a weeks time he was transferred to Vandalia Correction Center where it seems as if he's doing his time. He never spoke with a counselor or had a hearing regarding the incident. In the prisoner handbook it states that a hearing must be granted in order for a decision to be made. again this never happened. We need to know the legal steps to take for someone to look into this matter and find out if in fact he was treated fair or even who made the decision that he would be not considered for the bootcamp program.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
