Default Can the prison system take the money?

Illinois

A friend is in prison for 7 years; nothing to do with a financial crime. Can the prison system take the money in his bank accounts and/or any monies he would receive from a trust? Thank you.

Even though your friend is in prison for financial crime his debt remains unpaid. So if any money is credited to his account that will be adjusted to his debt to the society.

Wake up - he clearly said it's not a financial crime.

To my knowledge they usually cannot take his money unless the court has ordered that he pay a certain amount, in addition to the sentence is he serving.
