May 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Chicago, IL – May, 24, 2012 – Fathers’ Rights Attorney Jeffery M. Leving (http://dadsrights.com) supports Senate Bill 2621 which provides a safe, cost-effective way to reduce the  Illinois prison population through sentence credits for non-violent offenders. The Bill was sponsored by Senator Kwame Raoul, whose law firm Quarles & Brady provides counsel to the Fatherhood Educational Institute (FEI), a charity Leving founded.

Senate Bill 2621 would allow for non-violent offenders to receive sentence credits for good behavior. Sentence credits encourage inmate participation in programming, which studies show to be the most effective way to reduce recidivism. The Bill’s implementation will be open and transparent through an annual reporting requirement and brings Illinois in line with a standard practice in prison systems throughout the country.

“Senate Bill 2621 gives non-violent offenders a chance to end the cycle of recidivism,” said FEI founder Atty Jeffery M. Leving. “It also gives incarcerated fathers the chance to come home to their children sooner.”
