CRIM CD-STALKING PROTECTIVE OR                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Code of 1961.  Provides  that  a  person  may      
   bring  a  civil  action  in  a  circuit  court  for a court's stalking      
   protective order against a person if: (1)  the  person  intentionally,      
   knowingly, or recklessly engages in repeated and unwanted contact with      
   the  other  person  or  a member of that person's  immediate family or      
   household thereby alarming or coercing the other  person;  (2)  it  is      
   objectively  reasonable for a person in the victim's situation to have      
   been alarmed or coerced by the  contact;  and  (3)  the  repeated  and      
   unwanted  contact  causes the victim reasonable apprehension regarding      
   the personal safety  of  the  victim  or  a  member  of  the  victim's      
   immediate  family  or  household.  Creates  the offense of violating a      
   court's stalking protective order.  Provides that a first offense is a      
   Class A misdemeanor and a second or subsequent offense is  a  Class  4      
   felony.   Provides  that  the  offense  is  a  Class  4  felony if the      
   defendant had a prior conviction for stalking or aggravated  stalking.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts)             
          House Bill 4047 would increase judicial workloads; however,          
          it is not anticipated that the bill would increase the number        
          of judges needed in the state.                                       
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                              
          HB 4047 would cause an increase of 6 inmates in the                  
          corrections population and would have a fiscal impact of             
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
