Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

counties with one or more State correctional institutions with a total average daily inmate population in excess of 2,000, on the basis of 2 assistant state's attorneys when the total average daily inmate population exceeds 2,000 but is less than 4,000; and 3 assistant state's attorneys when such population exceeds 4,000; with reimbursement to be based on actual services rendered.

        (3) A maximum of $12,000 per year for one assistant

        Upon application of the county governing authority
    
and certification of the State's Attorney, the Director of Corrections may, in his discretion and subject to appropriation, increase the amount of salary reimbursement to a county in the event special circumstances require the county to incur extraordinary salary expenditures as a result of services performed in connection with State correctional institutions in that county.
    In determining whether or not to increase the amount of salary reimbursement, the Director shall consider, among other matters:
        (1) the nature of the services rendered;
        (2) the results or dispositions obtained;
        (3) whether or not the county was required to employ
    
additional attorney personnel as a direct result of the services actually rendered in connection with a particular service to a State correctional institution.
    (f) In counties where a State senior institution of higher education is located, the assistant state's attorneys specified by this Section shall, subject to appropriation, receive for their services, payable monthly by the Department of Revenue out of the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund or the General Revenue Fund to the county in which appointed, the following:
        (1) $14,000 per year each for employment on a full
    
time basis for 2 assistant state's attorneys in counties having a State university or State universities with combined full time enrollment of more than 15,000 students.
        (2) $7,200 per year for one assistant state's

    Such salaries shall be paid to the state's attorney and the assistant state's attorney in equal monthly installments by such county out of the county treasury provided that, subject to appropriation, the Department of Revenue shall reimburse each county monthly, out of the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund or the General Revenue Fund, the amount of such salary. This Section shall not prevent the payment of such additional compensation to the state's attorney or assistant state's attorney of any county, out of the treasury of that county as may be provided by law.
    (g) For purposes of this Section, "State mental health institution" means any institution under the jurisdiction of the Department of Human Services that is listed in Section 4 of the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act.
    For purposes of this Section, "State correctional institution" means any facility of the Department of Corrections including adult facilities, juvenile facilities, pre-release centers, community correction centers, and work camps.
    For purposes of this Section, "State university" means the University of Illinois, Southern Illinois University, Chicago State University, Eastern Illinois University, Governors State University, Illinois State University, Northeastern Illinois University, Northern Illinois University, Western Illinois University, and any public community college which has established a program of interinstitutional cooperation with one of the foregoing institutions whereby a student, after earning an associate degree from the community college, pursues a course of study at the community college campus leading to a baccalaureate degree from the foregoing institution (also known as a "2 Plus 2" degree program).
    (h) A number of assistant state's attorneys shall be appointed in each county that chooses to participate, as provided in this subsection, for the prosecution of alcohol-related traffic offenses. Each county shall receive monthly a subsidy for payment of the salaries and benefits of these assistant state's attorneys from State funds appropriated to the Department of Revenue out of the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund or the General Revenue Fund for that purpose. The amounts of subsidies provided by this subsection shall be adjusted for inflation each July 1 using the Consumer Price Index of the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor.
    When a county chooses to participate in the subsidy program described in this subsection (h), the number of assistant state's attorneys who are prosecuting alcohol-related traffic offenses must increase according to the subsidy provided in this subsection. These appointed assistant state's attorneys shall be in addition to any other assistant state's attorneys assigned to those cases on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly, and may not replace those assistant state's attorneys. In counties where the state's attorney is the sole prosecutor, this subsidy shall be used to provide an assistant state's attorney to prosecute alcohol-related traffic offenses along with the state's attorney. In counties where the state's attorney is the sole prosecutor, and in counties where a judge presides over cases involving a variety of misdemeanors, including alcohol-related traffic matters, assistant state's attorneys appointed and subsidized by this subsection (h) may also prosecute the different misdemeanor cases at the direction of the state's attorney.
    Assistant state's attorneys shall be appointed under this subsection in the following number and counties shall receive the following annual subsidies:
        (1) In counties with fewer than 30,000 inhabitants,
    
one at $35,000.
        (2) In counties with 30,000 or more but fewer than
    
100,000 inhabitants, one at $45,000.
        (3) In counties with 100,000 or more but fewer than
    
300,000 inhabitants, 2 at $45,000 each.
        (4) In counties, other than Cook County, with 300,000
    
or more inhabitants, 4 at $50,000 each.
    The amounts appropriated under this Section must be segregated by population classification and disbursed monthly.
    If in any year the amount appropriated for the purposes of this subsection (h) is insufficient to pay all of the subsidies specified in this subsection, the amount appropriated shall first be prorated by the population classifications of this subsection (h) and then among the counties choosing to participate within each of those classifications. If any of the appropriated moneys for each population classification remain at the end of a fiscal year, the remainder of the moneys may be allocated to participating counties that were not fully funded during the course of the year. Nothing in this subsection prohibits 2 or more State's attorneys from combining their subsidies to appoint a joint assistant State's attorney to prosecute alcohol-related traffic offenses in multiple counties. Nothing in this subsection prohibits a State's attorney from appointing an assistant State's attorney by contract or otherwise.
