Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

5 ILCS 280/1

    (5 ILCS 280/1) (from Ch. 102, par. 120)
    Sec. 1. Any person holding office under the Constitution of the State of Illinois and every elected official of local government or of any school district who is convicted in any court of the State of Illinois or of the United States of a felony, bribery, perjury, or other infamous crime, as understood in Section 1 of Article XIII of the Constitution of 1970, shall be, upon conviction, ineligible to continue in such office.
    If, subsequently, a final order reverses the conviction, eligibility to hold the office, to the extent of the original term then remaining, is restored, and the officer shall be reinstated, for the duration of the term of office remaining. Each such officer shall be promptly repaid all compensation withheld from him as a result of his removal. No rights of an officer under any pension plan subject to the jurisdiction of this State, of which the officer is a member at the time of his ineligibility for office, shall be abridged if the officer is returned to office by this Act.
    After conviction and until a final order of reversal, there shall be no payment of compensation to any such officer. Upon the conviction and ineligibility of any person under this Act, a successor shall be chosen according to law. This successor shall hold office for the remainder of the term or until a final order reversing the conviction is entered.
