CRIM CD-CONCEALING OFFENSE                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Code of  1961  relating  to  the  offense  of      
   concealing or aiding a fugitive. Eliminates exemption from prosecution      
   for a parent, child, brother, or sister of the offender.                    
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Provides that concealing a fugitive is a Class A  misdemeanor  if      
   the  offense  committed  was a misdemeanor and a Class 4 felony if the      
   offense committed was a felony.                                             
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
        Deletes everything after the enacting clause.   Amends  the  same      
   Section  of  the  Criminal Code of 1961.  Provides that any person who      
   intentionally  does  any  act  in  furtherance   of   preventing   the      
   apprehension  or aiding the escape of a person accused of first degree      
   murder commits a Class 3 felony.                                            
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          SB13 would have minimal population and fiscal impact on DOC.         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Deletes from the bill aiding the escape of  a  person.   Provides      
   that the offense of performing an act to prevent the apprehension of a      
   person   accused   of   first  degree  murder  does  not  abridge  the      
   husband-wife privilege.                                                     
        GOVERNOR'S AMENDATORY VETO MESSAGE                                     
        Recommends exempting from criminal liability a husband, wife,          
   parent, or child of an offender accused of first degree murder, and         
   deleting provision relating to the husband-wife privilege under the         
   Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 or the common law.
