Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that if the defendant was in the custody of the Department of Corrections at the time of the commission of the offense, each sentence for an offense committed while the defendant was in custody of the Department of Corrections (rather than the sentence) shall be served consecutive to the sentence under which the defendant is held for an offense committed before the defendant was held in custody of (rather than by) the Department of Corrections. Provides that if a person charged with a felony commits a separate felony while on pretrial release or in pretrial detention in a county jail facility or county detention facility, then each sentence (rather than the sentences) imposed upon conviction of these felonies shall be served consecutively regardless of the order in which the judgments of conviction are entered.
