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.

725 ILCS 5/124B-165

    (725 ILCS 5/124B-165)
    Sec. 124B-165. Order of forfeiture; sale of forfeited property; publication of notice; challenge to forfeiture.
    (a) Upon the court's determination that property is subject to forfeiture, the court shall enter an order of forfeiture with respect to the property at issue. Except as provided in Section 124B-705, the order shall authorize the Attorney General or State's Attorney to seize all property declared forfeited under this Article (if the property has not already been seized) upon terms and conditions the court deems proper. The Attorney General or State's Attorney may then sell the forfeited property unless the court determines that the property is required by law to be destroyed or is harmful to the public.
    (b) Following the entry of the order of forfeiture, the Attorney General or State's Attorney shall cause publication of notice of the order and his or her intent to dispose of the property. Publication shall be in a newspaper of general circulation in the county where the property was seized, for a period of 3 successive weeks.
    (c) Within 30 days after the publication, any person may petition the court to adjudicate the validity of his or her interest in the property and whether the interest is protected under this Article.
