William Balfour Is At Stateville Prison Awaiting Parole Violation Hearing…
Joliet, IL—The person detained in connection with the triple murder and kidnapping of Actress Jenifer Hudson’s family, William "Flex" Balfour is on ice at the venerable Stateville Correctional Facility. He is awaiting a hearing on allegations of parole violations. Balfour is ineligible for bail. Parole officials have a much lower standard of proof needed to revoke his parole than in a criminal court matter.
The longest they can keep Balfour incarcerated is until May 2009 when his entire carjacking, attempted murder sentence expires.
The FBI became involved but now lost jurisdiction because it’s evident no state lines were crossed. Chicago police now has the time to gather their evidence without fear of their suspect fleeing. The FBI may assist police with analysis of the forensic evidence that is abundant.
Stateville drom the outside:
