IL: Prison sentences served, but sex offenders stay locked up

____ ____ was originally sentenced to three years of probation after his conviction in 2011 on charges of aggravated child pornography.

____ is impoverished and homeless. And after he was found violating his parole by sleeping in the doorway of a church, Murphy was ordered to serve his sentence in prison.

He finally was approved to be released from custody in March, 2014, into the state’s mandatory supervised release program.

But because he is homeless and cannot find a place to live that satisfies the myriad of restrictions and regulations, ____, 61, remains in prison. And unless he somehow finds housing that satisfies the state’s strict limits, ____ is doomed to spend his life in prison regardless of what his original sentence had been.Full Article

What a disgusting treatment of human beings. Who are these monsters coming up with such laws that intentionally destroy peoples’ lives well beyond the original harm caused by the crime?

Enough to piss a normal human off!! 61 and in jail because he’d be homeless otherwise.

man I get so tired of having to comment on this bs and to witness the lack of support or protection and representation from the ACLU or any other civil rights so called leaders..I really hope trump tears this country apart I truly do…I used to love this country and was very patriotic but our government is disgusting and one of the worst human rights violators of the 21st century….internment camps, death camps, and gulags and auschwitz here we come…all under the guise of protecting children and civil regulations…everybody better prepare the doomsday prepping because it’s coming….

This looks like a real good law suit. it shows all the dead ends these people face. I remember there was another suit that the inmates Won. They were being locked back up the Minute they stepped out of Prison for having No Place to live.

well stated timmer…it’s all to easy to lose our own humanity and empathy in the face of oppression..
