Quoted from NintenBear:

That’s correct.

So is a transfer like this normal? Or are they moving him to an easier/better suited prison as he gets closer to his release date?

He's getting released soon?

Looks like he will be sometime in March of 2020.

Hey, just in time for Pincinnati.

Quoted from poppapin:

Yeah, he got a sweetheart deal and ended up serving WAY less time than if they had been able to prove he diddled his relative (in addition to the child porn they had on him). The separate relative case was just too far in the past, so the DA took what they could prove and Trudeau got a pretty short sentence, considering the severity of the charges and likelihood they were true. He's still a registered sex offender with those real-world restrictions for the rest of his life, though.

Working with jpop when he gets sprung?

That’s correct.

Did you have him autograph a Translite?

Quoted from TheLaw:

I'm pretty sure his career is ruined, but I am curious if anyone will hire him. I mean Deeproot scraped the dregs with JPop, but I think even if they want his talent, Trudeau would be too much even for them.

No they already hired Jpop

Trudeau was released to parole today...incredibly light sentence. VERY lucky.

I was just made aware that somehow Trudeau is back in prison, and the release last November didn't stick. He's now scheduled for a 2021 release, but the facility he's in has a COVID-19 outbreak, which is, to say the least, not good...

Yikes!! That is one creepy photo!

I saw this thread revived and figured he had been hired by Deeproot.

Yes, he looks extremely creepy now....

Looks like the crypt keeper from tales of the crypt

I mean....who gives a F about how he looks? Really? I don't think they have many aestheticians in prison.

He probably deserved longer than he was apparently going to get, anyways. Wonder if he violated parole or what?

I'm gonna say it.... does it surprise anyone else that this man fancied a wide flipper gap? You'd think those flipper gaps would be way smaller considering his... ahem... preferences.

Also bonus points for anyone that uses his mug shot as an apron card for one of his games.

Yeah, that's the part that is confusing. I checked the prison web page on his original parole date (because I couldn't believe he was getting off so easy) and I'm sure it said his status was released. Maybe it was a mistake? It seemed to be way early.

Whatever happened, he's now back in with a COVID-19 outbreak at his prison. Bad news for him.

Admitted the same day he was last paroled?

3 years to life?

We're missing something...

Probably different sentences for different crimes in different jurisdictions. One sentence was over the next one started.

The other case was dismissed when the sentence was given for this one. I was watching both. I thought that was a huge stroke of luck at the time because that case was a lot worse. This is the same sentence for the child porn possession case, but the in/out/in part is confusing.

Well glad to see he's not on the cover lately.

There's quite a bit of accrued information in this thread, so I just add to it when there's more. Seems like a better idea than fragmenting into a new thread.

Actually, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections, John Trudeau is due for release from the Taylorville Correctional Center in Taylorville on parole on 15th November, 2021.

I would be curious to know why he was re-imprisoned.

Well with a name like "oldbaby" he may be interested to show you

#79 3 months ago

Specifically, I'm curious to know whether he committed a new crime, whether it was a parole violation, whether a judge decided to lengthen his sentence unilaterally, or what.

Who knows? I'm always doubtful that people who are "miswired" in this particular way can be rehabilitated and released back into society without reverting to their past behavior.

remember what we were taught about our "inside voice"?
