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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 38, par. 1005-9-1.6)
Fine for Domestic Battery.
There shall be added to
every penalty imposed in sentencing for the offense of domestic battery an
additional fine in the amount of $10 to be imposed upon a plea of guilty,
stipulation of facts or finding of guilty resulting in a judgment of
conviction or order of supervision.
Such additional amount 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 penalty shall be remitted
by the Circuit Clerk within one month after receipt to the State Treasurer
for deposit into the Domestic Violence Shelter and Service Fund. The
Circuit Clerk shall retain 10% of such penalty to cover the costs incurred
in administering and enforcing this Section. Such additional penalty shall
not be considered a part of the fine for purposes of any reduction in the
fine for time served either before or after sentencing.
Not later than March 1 of each year the Clerk of the Circuit Court shall
submit to the State Comptroller a report of the amount of funds remitted by
him to the State Treasurer under this Section during the preceding calendar
year. Except as otherwise provided by Supreme Court Rules, if a court in
sentencing an offender levies a gross amount for fine, costs, fees and
penalties, the amount of the additional penalty provided for herein shall
be collected from the amount remaining after deducting from the gross
amount levied all fees of the Circuit Clerk, the State's Attorney and the
Sheriff. After deducting from the gross amount levied the fees and
additional penalty provided for herein, less any other additional penalties
provided by law, the clerk shall remit the net balance remaining to the
entity authorized by law to receive the fine imposed in the case. For
purposes of this Section "fees of the Circuit Clerk" shall include, if
applicable, the fee provided for under Section 27.3a of the Clerks of
Courts Act and the fee, if applicable, payable to the county in which the
violation occurred under Section 5-1101 of the Counties Code.
