Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that it is a violation for a person not entitled to the possession of a vehicle or essential part of a vehicle to receive, possess, conceal, sell, dispose, or transfer it with the intent to permanently or temporarily deprive the owner of his or her title to or possession of the vehicle. Deletes language providing that it may be inferred that a person exercising exclusive unexplained possession over a stolen or converted vehicle or an essential part of a stolen or converted vehicle has knowledge that such vehicle or essential part is stolen or converted. Provides instead that the trier of fact may infer that a person intends to permanently or temporarily deprive the owner of his or her title to or possession of the vehicle if the person: (i) operates a vehicle or possesses an essential part of a vehicle without the consent of the owner; or (ii) exercises exclusive unexplained possession over a vehicle or an essential part of a vehicle.
