(730 ILCS 5/3-3-9.5)
Revocation of aftercare release; revocation hearing.
(a) If, prior to expiration or termination of the aftercare release term, a juvenile committed to the Department of Juvenile Justice under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 violates a condition of release set by the Department under Section 3-2.5-95 of this Code, the Department may initiate revocation proceedings by issuing a violation warrant under Section 3-2.5-70 of this Code or by retaking of the releasee and returning him or her to a Department facility.
(b) The Department shall provide the releasee and the Prisoner Review Board with written notice of the alleged violation of aftercare release charged against him or her.
(c) The issuance of a warrant of arrest for an alleged violation of the conditions of aftercare release shall toll the running of the aftercare release term until the final determination of the alleged violation is made. If the Board finds that the youth has not violated a condition of aftercare release, that period shall be credited to the term.
(d) A person charged with violating a condition of aftercare release shall have a preliminary hearing before a hearing officer designated by the Board to determine if there is probable cause to hold the person for a revocation hearing. However, no preliminary hearing need be held when revocation is based upon new criminal charges and a court finds probable cause on the new criminal charges or when the revocation is based upon a new criminal conviction or a finding of delinquency and a certified copy of that conviction is available.
(e) At the preliminary hearing, the Board may order the releasee held in Department custody or released under supervision pending a final revocation decision of the Board. A youth who is held in Department custody, shall be released and discharged upon the expiration of the maximum term permitted under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987.
(f) A hearing on revocation shall be conducted before at least one member of the Prisoner Review Board. The Board may meet and order its actions in panels of 3 or more members. The action of a majority of the panel shall be the action of the Board. The member hearing the matter and at least a majority of the panel shall be experienced in juvenile matters. A record of the hearing shall be made. At the hearing the releasee shall be permitted to:
(1) appear and answer the charge; and
(2) bring witnesses on his or her behalf.
(g) If the Board finds that the juvenile has not violated a condition of aftercare release, the Board shall order the juvenile rereleased and aftercare release continued under the existing term and may make specific recommendations to the Department regarding appropriate conditions of release.
(h) If the Board finds that the juvenile has violated a condition of aftercare release, the Board shall either:
(1) revoke aftercare release and order the juvenile
