1    AN ACT concerning criminal law.
2    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
3represented in the General Assembly:
4    Section 5. The Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 is
5amended by changing Sections 112A-20 and 112A-23 as follows:
6    (725 ILCS 5/112A-20)  (from Ch. 38, par. 112A-20)
7    Sec. 112A-20. Duration and extension of final protective
9    (a) (Blank).
10    (b) A final protective order shall remain in effect as
12        (1) if entered during pre-trial release, until
13    disposition, withdrawal, or dismissal of the underlying
14    charge; if, however, the case is continued as an
15    independent cause of action, the order's duration may be
16    for a fixed period of time not to exceed 2 years;
17        (2) if in effect in conjunction with a bond forfeiture
18    warrant, until final disposition or an additional period
19    of time not exceeding 2 years; no domestic violence order
20    of protection, however, shall be terminated by a dismissal
21    that is accompanied by the issuance of a bond forfeiture
22    warrant;
23        (3) until 2 years after the expiration of any



HB0734 Enrolled- 2 -LRB102 11400 KMF 16733 b

1    supervision, conditional discharge, probation, periodic
2    imprisonment, parole, aftercare release, or mandatory
3    supervised release for domestic violence orders of
4    protection and civil no contact orders; or
5        (4) until 2 years after the date set by the court for
6    expiration of any sentence of imprisonment and subsequent
7    parole, aftercare release, or mandatory supervised release
8    for domestic violence orders of protection and civil no
9    contact orders; and
10        (5) permanent for a stalking no contact order if a
11    judgment of conviction for stalking is entered; or .
12        (6) permanent for a civil no contact order at the
13    victim's request if a judgment of conviction for criminal
14    sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual assault,
15    criminal sexual abuse, excluding a conviction under
16    subsection (c) of Section 11-1.50 of the Criminal Code of
17    2012, or aggravated criminal sexual abuse is entered.
18    (c) Computation of time. The duration of a domestic
19violence order of protection shall not be reduced by the
20duration of any prior domestic violence order of protection.
21    (d) Law enforcement records. When a protective order
22expires upon the occurrence of a specified event, rather than
23upon a specified date as provided in subsection (b), no
24expiration date shall be entered in Department of State Police
25records. To remove the protective order from those records,
26either the petitioner or the respondent shall request the



HB0734 Enrolled- 3 -LRB102 11400 KMF 16733 b

1clerk of the court to file a certified copy of an order stating
2that the specified event has occurred or that the protective
3order has been vacated or modified with the sheriff, and the
4sheriff shall direct that law enforcement records shall be
5promptly corrected in accordance with the filed order.
6    (e) Extension of Orders. Any domestic violence order of
7protection or civil no contact order that expires 2 years
8after the expiration of the defendant's sentence under
9paragraph (2), (3), or (4) of subsection (b) of Section
10112A-20 of this Article may be extended one or more times, as
11required. The petitioner, petitioner's counsel, or the State's
12Attorney on the petitioner's behalf shall file the motion for
13an extension of the final protective order in the criminal
14case and serve the motion in accordance with Supreme Court
15Rules 11 and 12. The court shall transfer the motion to the
16appropriate court or division for consideration under
17subsection (e) of Section 220 of the Illinois Domestic
18Violence Act of 1986, subsection (c) of Section 216 of the
19Civil No Contact Order Act, or subsection (c) of Section 105 of
20the Stalking No Contact Order as appropriate.
21    (f) Termination date. Any final protective order which
22would expire on a court holiday shall instead expire at the
23close of the next court business day.
24    (g) Statement of purpose. The practice of dismissing or
25suspending a criminal prosecution in exchange for issuing a
26protective order undermines the purposes of this Article. This

1Section shall not be construed as encouraging that practice.

12the protective order were committed, to the extent consistent
13with the venue provisions of this Article. Nothing in this
14Article shall preclude any Illinois court from enforcing any
15valid protective order issued in another state. Illinois
16courts may enforce protective orders through both criminal
17prosecution and contempt proceedings, unless the action which
18is second in time is barred by collateral estoppel or the
19constitutional prohibition against double jeopardy.

23    generally applies in such criminal or contempt
