SEXUAL ASSAULT-CHILD-RECORDS                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Sexual  Assault  Survivors  Emergency  Treatment  Act.      
   Requires  hospitals  to receive the sexual assault evidence collection      
   kits (now the hospitals must request the  kits).   Provides  that  the      
   hospitals must conduct appropriate medical examinations and laboratory      
   tests  in  cases  of  alleged  sexual assaults (now the alleged sexual      
   assault  survivor  must  consent  to  the  examinations  and   tests).      
   Provides  that  the  examinations  and tests must be maintained by the      
   hospital and made available to law enforcement  officials,  regardless      
   of the consent of the alleged sexual assault survivor (now the alleged      
   sexual assault survivor must request it).

          Adds reference to:                                                   
          20 ILCS 2630/5                  from Ch. 38, par. 206-5              
        Deletes the title  and  everything  after  the  enacting  clause.      
   Amends  the  Criminal Identification Act.  Provides that the victim of      
   criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual assault, predatory      
   criminal  sexual  assault  of  a  child,  criminal  sexual  abuse,  or      
   aggravated  criminal  sexual  abuse,  may  request  that  the  State's      
   Attorney file a petition with  the  trial  judge  to  have  the  court      
   records  of  the  case sealed.  Provides that, upon order of the court      
   for good cause shown, the records may be  made  available  for  public      
   inspection.  Effective January 1, 2000.
