DOMESTIC VIOLENCE-NO CONTACT
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 and the Illinois
Domestic Violence Act of 1986. Provides that when a person is charged
with a criminal offense and released on bond and the victim of the
offense is a family or household member and the condition of the bond
denies or restricts contact with the victim, the clerk shall
immediately, or on the next court day, enter the order on the record,
file it and provide a file stamped copy of the order to the defendant,
if present, and to the victim, if present. Establishes information
that must be included in such a court order. Provides that the law
enforcement agency that received the order shall enter into the Law
Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS) the no contact with family
victim order information. Effective immediately.
CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Illinois Department of Corrections)
It is anticipated existing Record Office staff can accommodate
the estimated work load increase this bill would generate.
There will be no corrections or fiscal impacts.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Replaces "the law enforcement agency of the unit of local
government" with "the sheriff" so that the sheriff is the law
enforcement agency that enters the no contact order into LEADS.
