An early Christmas present for a group of DUI offenders turned out to be short-lived.
But following angry criticism from anti-DUI advocates, Quinn ordered the offenders back to prison on Thursday.
Each will be paroled between mid-January and mid-October under the terms of their original sentences, the Sun-Times reported.
The early release was part of a program aimed to save $5 million annually by placing certain "low-level, nonviolent offenders" on home detention, according to the Sun-Times.
No more DUI drivers will be eligible for early release as they will now be considered violent, according to an official with the state Corrections Department.
