(225 ILCS 57/110)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
Findings and recommendations.
At the conclusion of the
the Board shall present to the Secretary a written report of its findings
and recommendations. The report shall contain a finding of whether or not
the accused person violated this Act or failed to comply with the conditions
required in this Act. The Board shall specify the nature of the violation
or failure to comply and shall make its recommendations to the Secretary.
The report of findings and recommendations of the Board shall be the
basis for the Department's order or refusal or for the granting of a license
unless the Secretary shall determine that the Board's report
is contrary to the manifest weight of the evidence, in which case the Secretary
may issue an order in contravention of the Board's report. The finding
is not admissible in evidence against the person in a criminal prosecution
brought for the violation of this Act, but the hearing and finding are not
a bar to a criminal prosecution brought for the violation of this Act.
