(730 ILCS 5/5-9-1.12)
(a) In addition to any other penalty imposed, a fine of $500 shall be
imposed upon a person convicted of the offense of arson, residential arson,
or aggravated arson.
(b) The additional fine shall be assessed by the court imposing
sentence and shall be collected by the Circuit Clerk in addition to the
fine, if any, and costs in the case. Each such additional fine shall
be remitted by the Circuit Clerk within one month after receipt to the
State Treasurer for deposit into the Fire Prevention Fund. The Circuit
Clerk shall retain 10% of such fine to cover the costs incurred in
administering and enforcing this Section. The additional fine may not be
considered a part of the fine for purposes of any reduction in the fine for
time served either before or after sentencing. Arson fines that were previously deposited into the Fire Prevention Fund prior to the adoption of Public Act 96-400 shall be used according to the purposes established in Section 13.1 of the Fire Investigation Act.
