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.

730 ILCS 5/5-8-5

    (730 ILCS 5/5-8-5) (from Ch. 38, par. 1005-8-5)
    Sec. 5-8-5. Commitment of the Offender. Upon rendition of judgment after pronouncement of a sentence of periodic imprisonment, imprisonment, or death, the court shall commit the offender to the custody of the sheriff or to the Department of Corrections. A sheriff in executing an order for commitment to the Department of Corrections shall convey such offender to the nearest receiving station designated by the Department of Corrections. The court may commit the offender to the custody of the Attorney General of the United States under Section 5-8-6 when a sentence for a State offense provides that such sentence is to run concurrently with a previous and unexpired federal sentence. The expense of conveying a person committed by the juvenile court or an offender convicted of a felony shall be paid by the State. The expenses in all other cases shall be paid by the county of the committing court.
