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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.
(725 ILCS 5/124B-155)
Rights of certain parties unaffected by protective order; release of property.
(a) A restraining order or injunction entered, or other action taken, by the court under Section 124B-150 does not affect the rights of any bona fide purchaser, mortgagee, judgment creditor, or other lienholder that arose before the date on which a certified copy of the restraining order, injunction, or other prohibition was filed in accordance with subsection (f) of Section 124B-150.
(b) At any time, upon verified petition by the defendant or by an innocent owner or innocent bona fide third party lienholder who neither had knowledge of, nor consented to, the illegal act or omission, the court may conduct a hearing to release all or portions of any property that the court previously determined to be subject to forfeiture or subject to any restraining order, injunction, or other action. For good cause shown and in the court's sound discretion, the court may release the property to the defendant or innocent owner or innocent bona fide third party lienholder who neither had knowledge of, nor consented to, the illegal act or omission.
