Credit for incarceration on bailable offense; credit against monetary bail for certain offenses.
(a) Any person incarcerated on a bailable offense who does not supply
bail and against whom a fine is levied on conviction of the offense
shall be allowed a credit of $5 for each day so incarcerated upon application
of the defendant. However,
in no case shall the amount so allowed or
credited exceed the amount of the fine.
(b) Subsection (a) does not apply to a person incarcerated for sexual assault as defined in paragraph (1) of subsection (a) of Section 5-9-1.7 of the Unified Code of Corrections.
(c) A person subject to bail on a Category B offense shall have $30 deducted from his or her 10% cash bond amount every day the person is incarcerated. The sheriff shall calculate and apply this $30 per day reduction and send notice to the circuit clerk if a defendant's 10% cash bond amount is reduced to $0, at which point the defendant shall be released upon his or her own recognizance.
(d) The court may deny the incarceration credit in subsection (c) of this Section if the person has failed to appear as required before the court and is incarcerated based on a warrant for failure to appear on the same original criminal offense.
