Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections if and only if House Bill 1064 of the 102nd General Assembly becomes law. Provides that the amendatory Act applies retroactively. Provides that a petitioner is eligible for parole review regardless of whether the petitioner was sentenced on or after June 1, 2019. Provides that up to 3 (rather than 3) years prior to becoming eligible for parole review, the eligible person may file his or her petition for parole review with the Prisoner Review Board. Provides that within 30 days of receipt of this petition, the Prisoner Review Board shall determine whether the petition is appropriately filed, and if so, shall set a date for a parole review hearing one year from the date the petition is deemed appropriately filed or on the date of eligibility for parole review, whichever is later (rather than 3 years from receipt of the petition). Effective immediately.

730 ILCS 5/3-3-3from Ch. 38, par. 1003-3-3

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill. Provides that, except for parole review of persons under the age of 21 at the time of the commission of an offense, no person serving a term of natural life imprisonment may be paroled or released except through executive clemency. Provides that for all parole proceedings, the Prisoner Review Board, no less than 15 days in advance of a person's scheduled parole hearing, shall send by certified mail notice of the parole hearing's place, date, and approximate time to: (1) the State's Attorney of the county where a person eligible for parole was convicted; (2) the victim of the crime for which the person eligible for parole was convicted, if not deceased; and (3) the victim's family. Provides that these provisions are in addition to the provisions that apply to notifications to State's Attorneys' offices, victims, and victims' families under other laws of the State. Provides that not less than 12 months prior to the parole review hearing, the Prisoner Review Board shall by certified mail provide notification to the State's Attorney of the county from which the person was committed and by certified mail written notification to the victim or family of the victim of the scheduled hearing place, date, and approximate time.
