What happens if the defendant is sentenced to the Department of Corrections (prison)?
The defendant will be transported to prison from the Lake County Jail. Inmates in prison can be tracked on the Illinois Department of Corrections website. It will show which prison facility the offender will be housed, which county he was sentenced in, and his tentative release date will be posted. You can also request in writing to be notified of the defendant’s status, or sign up with the automated victim notification system to be notified of changes in the inmate status. Inmate Search
