Diigo Post Excerpt:
Petitioner is currently on mandatory supervised release ("MSR") after having served the required portion of his 20-year Illinois sentence for home invasion. He brings this habeas corpus action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 to challenge the execution of his MSR term, including the determination that he should be subject to special conditions of parole due to his labeling as a sex offender. The petition was filed on August 8, 2013.
Petitioner was convicted of home invasion after a jury trial in 2002, in Adams County Case No. 01-CF-458. The jury found him not guilty of four counts of sex offenses (Doc. 1, p. 2). He is subject to a three-year period of MSR. Upon his release from Pinckneyville Correctional Center ("Pinckneyville"), it was determined that he would be designated as a sex offender, despite the fact he had not been convicted of any sex crime. Because of this, he was ordered to wear an electronic monitor and a GPS unit at all times while he is on MSR (Doc. 1, p. 9).
