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.

730 ILCS 105/15

    (730 ILCS 105/15) (from Ch. 38, par. 1665)
    Sec. 15. Open hearings.
    (a) The Board may restrict the number of individuals allowed to attend parole, or parole or aftercare release revocation hearings in accordance with physical limitations, security requirements of the hearing facilities or those giving repetitive or cumulative testimony. The Board may also restrict attendance at an aftercare release or aftercare release revocation hearing in order to protect the confidentiality of the youth.
    (b) The Board may deny admission or continued attendance at parole hearings, or parole or aftercare release revocation hearings to individuals who:
        (1) threaten or present danger to the security of the
institution in which the hearing is being held;
        (2) threaten or present a danger to other attendees
or participants; or
        (3) disrupt the hearing.
    (c) Upon formal action of a majority of the Board members present, the Board may close parole hearings and parole or aftercare release revocation hearings in order to:
        (1) deliberate upon the oral testimony and any other
relevant information received from applicants, parolees, releasees, victims, or others; or
        (2) provide applicants, releasees, and parolees the
opportunity to challenge information other than that which if the person's identity were to be exposed would possibly subject them to bodily harm or death, which they believe detrimental to their parole determination hearing or revocation proceedings.
