Joliet Correctional Center
For a short time, John Belushi was an employee of the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The next people inside the Joliet Prison may have to pay for the privilege, reports WBBM’s John Cody.
Joliet firefighters put out a blaze early Thursday at the shuttered Joliet Correctional Center, made famous for being used in the movie “Blues Brothers” and the TV show “Prison Break.”
Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart still has his eyes on Joliet as a possible place to house any arrestee overflow there might be later this month during the NATO summit.
The NATO summit is just weeks away and Chicago officials are figuring out how to handle the thousands of protestors expected to turn out for the meetings.
