    AN ACT concerning criminal law.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 is
amended by adding Section 106B-10 as follows:
 
    (725 ILCS 5/106B-10 new)
    Sec. 106B-10. Conditions for testimony by a victim who is a
child or a moderately, severely, or profoundly intellectually
disabled person or a person affected by a developmental
disability. In a prosecution of criminal sexual assault,
predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, aggravated
criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse, or aggravated
criminal sexual abuse, the court may set any conditions it
finds just and appropriate on the taking of testimony of a
victim who is a child under the age of 18 years or a
moderately, severely, or profoundly intellectually disabled
person or a person affected by a developmental disability,
involving the use of a facility dog in any proceeding involving
that offense. When deciding whether to permit the child or
person to testify with the assistance of a facility dog, the
court shall take into consideration the age of the child or
person, the rights of the parties to the litigation, and any
other relevant factor that would facilitate the testimony by
the child or the person. As used in this Section, "facility
dog" means a dog that is a graduate of an assistance dog
organization that is a member of Assistance Dogs International.
