Did You Know?

In the adult criminal justice system in Illinois, judges sentence people to prison for a specific amount of time. In the juvenile system, the sentence is open-ended. Youth can only be released from the Department of Juvenile Justice by reaching the age of 21 or by a decision of the Prisoner Review Board.  (Source: Illinois Department of Human Services)
