(725 ILCS 5/115-17a)
Subpoenas to crime victims.
In a post conviction proceeding,
before the crime victim may be subpoenaed by the defendant, the defendant must
first petition the court and give notice to the victim. At the hearing on the
petition, the victim shall be given the opportunity to appear and object to the
requested subpoena. At the request of the victim, the State's Attorney shall
represent the victim in the proceeding. The court shall grant the request for
the subpoena only if and to the extent it determines that the subpoena seeks
evidence that is material and relevant to the post conviction hearing. For the
purposes of this Section, "crime victim" has the meaning ascribed to it in
Section 3 of the Rights of Crime Victims and Witnesses Act.
