January 2022 Clemency Petition Public Hearings Rescheduled due to COVID-19

The Illinois Prisoner Review Board has just announced that it has postponed the public hearings available to clemency petitioners that were originally scheduled for January 10th through 14th, 2022 to a later, to-be-determined date.  Updates to the hearing schedule should be published on the Prisoner Review Board’s website, under the Executive Clemency and Expungement tab, but I would also recommend you stay in touch directly with the Prisoner Review Board to determine when you, or your loved one’s, hearing will be rescheduled to.  The next date public hearings are officially set for, as of now, is April 12th through 14th, 2022 and these are slated to take place in Springfield, Illinois, likely at the Illinois State Library.  It is possible an additional docket date may be added to account for the now-delayed January 2022 hearings.
