CRIM CD-AGG BATTERY
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that a person commits
aggravated battery if, in committing a battery, he or she (or the
person battered) is in a building or other structure used to provide
shelter or other services to victims of domestic violence or to the
dependent children of victims of domestic violence, or within 500 feet
of such a building or other structure. Effective immediately.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that the new aggravated battery provision applies if the
person battered is within 500 feet while going to or from the shelter
(rather than just being within 500 feet of the shelter).
GOVERNOR'S AMENDATORY VETO MESSAGE
Recommends that various changes be made in the phrasing and order
of the new provisions; the new provisions also apply to victims and
their dependent children pursuant to the Domestic Violence Shelters
Act; and the term "building or other structure used to provide shel-
ter" be given a specified definition.
