Note: When I first checked the IDOC website and brought the information over to the blogger Sheley's inmate status was listed as RECEPTION, when I went back to verify I had all of the information correct a few minutes later his inmate status had changed to IN CUSTODY. I don't know for sure if this means he has now been assigned to Stateville to serve his sentence. When I find out I will update this entry.


Another thing I want to note is that when Nicholas Sheley was sentenced to the seven years, James Harrell asked the court if this sentence was eligible for the 50% . Judge Mathers told him that is up to the Department of Corrections. Actually the issue is not so subjective. As noted above the 50% does apply and evidently he is given time from the date of the incident. Having said all of that, it will be a long time before if ever Nicholas Sheley walks out of jail. He still has to stand trial for the deaths of 8 people he is accused of killing in late June 2008.


Since 1978 Illinois has not used indeterminate sentencing (parole) in our prisons, our prison system uses determinate sentencing. This massive reform, widely supported by both the offender and victim community alike, and widely supported by the entire law enforcement and most of the legal community, took much of the politics and randomness out of prisoners' sentences by eliminating parole.Parole was a wildly discriminatory system, never applied consistently, and very subject to human error and politics.


Under determinate sentencing all prisoners except murderers are eligible to earn up to half off their sentences but ONLY measured objectively by their own good behavior - not some politically appointed board. Every day they are good, they earn a day off their sentence. (Some serious non murder cases like aggravated rape can only earn 15% off and murders as of 1993 can not earn any time off.) Any bets on now long this guy can behave?

  2. Anon. 11/13, I'm sure it will be difficult to testify in a case like this, although it's probably best to get it behind you. This is not going away until the Sheley's go away. I'll be looking for that trial date.

    So you think Nick will have problems making friends at Statesville?

  3. It has been brought to my attention that Sheley is still in RECEPTION at the NRC rather than IN CUSTODY at Statesville prison itself. The information in the body of this message is how it still appears on the IDOC website. I'm trying to find out what is up with that.

    I really want to try and attend. You won't be attending? I did find the date last night on SaukValley.com. The article said the trial is expected to last 3 days. Because it is a bench trial, I assume the state will present their case the first day, maybe the defense the second and a verdict on the third? I really am not sure because just about every trial I have followed is a jury trial. NS has a hearing here on 12/4, I will try and find out more of the logistics.
