Adds reference to:
725 ILCS 5/115-9.2 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Provides that in a prosecution in which United States currency was used by a law enforcement officer or agency or by a person acting under the direction of a law enforcement officer or agency in an undercover investigation of an offense that has imprisonment as an available sentence for a violation of the offense, the court shall receive as competent evidence, a photograph, photostatic copy, or photocopy of the currency used in the undercover investigation, if the photograph, photostatic copy, or photocopy (1) will serve the purpose of demonstrating the nature of the currency; (2) the individual serial numbers of the currency are clearly visible or if the amount of currency exceeds $500 the individual serial numbers of a sample of 10% of the currency are clearly visible, and any identification marks placed on the currency by law enforcement as part of the investigation are clearly visible; (3) complies with federal law, rule, or regulation requirements on photographs, photostatic copies, or photocopies of United States currency; and (4) is otherwise admissible into evidence under all other rules of law governing the admissibility of photographs, photostatic copies, or photocopies into evidence. Provides that the fact that it is impractical to introduce into evidence the actual currency for any reason, including its size, weight, or unavailability, need not be established for the court to find a photograph, photostatic copy, or photocopy of that currency to be competent evidence. Provides that if a photograph, photostatic copy, or photocopy is found to be competent evidence, it is admissible into evidence in place of the currency and to the same extent as the currency itself.
