Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

725 ILCS 5/124B-605

    (725 ILCS 5/124B-605)
    Sec. 124B-605. Distribution of property and sale proceeds.
    (a) All moneys and the sale proceeds of all other property forfeited and seized under this Part 600 shall be distributed as follows:
        (1) 50% shall be distributed to the unit of local
    
government whose officers or employees conducted the investigation into computer fraud and caused the arrest or arrests and prosecution leading to the forfeiture. Amounts distributed to units of local government shall be used for training or enforcement purposes relating to detection, investigation, or prosecution of financial crimes, including computer fraud. If, however, the investigation, arrest or arrests, and prosecution leading to the forfeiture were undertaken solely by a State agency, the portion provided under this paragraph (1) shall be paid into the State Police Services Fund of the Illinois Department of State Police to be used for training or enforcement purposes relating to detection, investigation, or prosecution of financial crimes, including computer fraud.
        (2) 50% shall be distributed to the county in which
    
the prosecution and petition for forfeiture resulting in the forfeiture was instituted by the State's Attorney and shall be deposited into a special fund in the county treasury and appropriated to the State's Attorney for use in training or enforcement purposes relating to detection, investigation, or prosecution of financial crimes, including computer fraud. If a prosecution and petition for forfeiture resulting in the forfeiture has been maintained by the Attorney General, 50% of the proceeds shall be paid into the Attorney General's Financial Crime Prevention Fund. If the Attorney General and the State's Attorney have participated jointly in any part of the proceedings, 25% of the proceeds forfeited shall be paid to the county in which the prosecution and petition for forfeiture resulting in the forfeiture occurred, and 25% shall be paid into the Attorney General's Financial Crime Prevention Fund to be used for the purposes stated in this paragraph (2).
    (b) Before any distribution under subsection (a), the Attorney General or State's Attorney shall retain from the forfeited moneys or sale proceeds, or both, sufficient moneys to cover expenses related to the administration and sale of the forfeited property.
