Provides that an oral, written, or sign language statement of a minor made without the presence of counsel during a custodial interrogation in violation of the Act on or after the effective date of the bill shall be inadmissible as evidence against the minor in a proceeding under the Act or under the Criminal Code of 2012.

Provides that if a Chief Judge establishes a Justice for Juveniles Program, any oral, written, or sign language statement of a juvenile made without the presence of legal counsel during a custodial interrogation on or after the effective date of the Program shall be inadmissible as evidence against the juvenile in a proceeding under this Act or in a proceeding under the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012. Defines "eligible offense" and "juvenile".

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
