d)         Offenders shall not be eligible to receive compensatory good time against that portion of their sentence that is calculated under day for day credit provisions.

 

1)         An offender shall not be awarded compensatory good time for any month during which he or she is reported by his or her work or program supervisor for carelessness, negligence, or refusal to work, providing that not awarding compensatory good time is recommended by the facility's Adjustment Committee and approved by the Chief Administrative Officer.  No offender shall lose any compensatory good time because he or she was unable to work or participate in a facility program through no fault of his or her own.

 

2)         Any offender placed in segregation or confinement for a period of 3 days or more during a given month pursuant to a hearing before an Adjustment Committee shall not be awarded compensatory good time for that month.  However, no person shall lose compensatory good time for more than one month pursuant to such a hearing unless he or she is placed in segregation or confinement for at least 10 additional days during the second and subsequent months.

 

3)         Any offender placed on investigative status shall receive compensatory good time for that month if the investigation findings indicate that the offender did not commit a violation.

 

4)         Every offender assigned to a transition center shall be credited with compensatory good time unless an Adjustment Committee finds that he or she has violated disciplinary rules.

 

5)         Awarded compensatory good time may not be revoked.

 

e)         Day for day credit, with reference to the minimum and maximum sentences, shall be calculated by awarding one day of credit for each day served for all offenders sentenced on or after February 1, 1978, if the credit would be more beneficial to the offender than statutory good time and compensatory good time credit.

 

f)         Statutory sentence credit, with reference to determinate sentences entered on or after February 1, 1978, for offenses committed prior to June 19, 1998, shall be calculated by awarding one day of statutory sentence credit for each day served.

 

g)         Statutory sentence credit, with reference to determinate sentences for offenses committed on or after June 19, 1998, shall be awarded in accordance with the Truth in Sentencing provisions of Section 3-6-3 of the UCOC.

 

h)         Any offender convicted of a sex offense, as defined in the Sex Offender Registration Act [730 ILCS 150], that was committed on or after June 1, 2008, shall receive no statutory sentence credit unless he or she successfully completes or is participating in sex offender treatment.  However, if the offender is on a waiting list for treatment but is unable to participate due solely to lack of Department resources, he or she may be awarded statutory sentence credit at the discretion of the Director.
