(b) "Sureties" encompasses the nonmonetary requirements
set by the court as conditions for release either before or after
(c) The phrase "for which a sentence of imprisonment, without

of conviction" means an offense for which a sentence of imprisonment in the Department of Corrections,
without probation, periodic imprisonment or conditional discharge, is
required by law upon conviction.
(e) "Protective order" means any order of protection issued under Section 112A-14 of this Code or the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986, a stalking no contact order issued under Section 80 of the Stalking No Contact Order Act, or a civil no contact order issued under Section 213 of the Civil No Contact Order Act.
(f) "Willful flight" means intentional conduct with a purpose to thwart the judicial process to avoid prosecution.
