Fathers’ Rights Atty Jeffery Leving Supports New Laws Offering Reduction in
Inmate Prison Terms and Protection of Minor Children

CHICAGO, IL—Fathers’ Rights Attorney Jeffery M. Leving (http://dadsrights.com)
announced that he supports the newly signed Illinois Laws that help to improve public
safety and criminal justice.

On June 22, Governor Pat Quinn signed several new laws including, Senate Bill 2621 that
provides a safe, cost-effective way to reduce Illinois’ prison population—giving sentence
credits to nonviolent offenders and encouraging positive rehabilitation programs that will
give inmates a second chance to better their lives.

“Many of these inmates, have missed years of their children’s’ lives due to incarceration. In
the past three decades prison populations have increased in size, with more than 1.5 million
of our nation’s children having a parent incarcerated. Paternal incarceration has decreased
the income of families by more than 12 percent,” said Attorney Leving.

In addition, Gov. Quinn signed other laws helping to protect children and keep them out of
harm’s way.

Both Senate Bills 3579 and 3258 prohibits sex offenders from participating in holiday
celebrations where minors are present and clarifies any violations included in the Sex
Offender Registry, for public record. Senate Bill 3809 allows for park districts to perform
background checks on job applicants to determine whether they have committed certain
offenses. House Bill 4590 allows for Department of Corrections to add new information to
inmates’ records.

These new Illinois Laws are intended to manage the prison population, encourage positive
rehabilitation behavior, and protect minor children from danger.
