adj.— «A small fraction of the convicts who leave Illinois’ prisons each year are “hooked,” as it goes in prison parlance. That is, they are hooked up to a home-monitoring device—those bands of rubber equipped with a pager-sized transmitter that fits snugly around one of their ankles.» —“Martha’s new bauble chafes” in New York City Chicago Sun-Times Mar. 16, 2005.
