Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code and the Criminal Code of 1961. Creates the offense of theft of motor fuel. Provides that a person commits the offense when he or she dispenses motor fuel into a storage container or the fuel tank of a motor vehicle at an establishment in which motor fuel is offered for retail sale and leaves the premises of the establishment without making payment or the authorized charge for the motor fuel. Creates certain presumptions. Establishes penalties. Provides for the suspension of the driver's license of a person convicted of theft of motor fuel for a period not to exceed 6 months for a first conviction and for a period not to exceed one year for a second or subsequent conviction.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
720 ILCS 5/16J-20 new

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the bill with these changes: (1) eliminates the presumption Section and (2) requires the defendant's knowledge in order to commit the offense and that the defendant's intent must be to deprive the establishment in which the motor fuel is sold of the possession, use or benefit of the motor fuel without paying the full retail value of the motor fuel.
