Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code and the Criminal Code of 1961.
Amends the Vehicle Code to increase the penalties for fleeing or
attempting to elude a police officer and aggravated fleeing or
attempting to elude a police officer. For the fleeing or attempting
to elude offense, provides that the Secretary of State shall (instead
of may) suspend a driver's license, and increases the period of
suspension for a second conviction. Makes a third or subsequent
violation a Class 4 felony. Provides that an aggravated offense is
committed when the flight or attempt is at a certain rate of speed,
causes bodily injury, or causes property damage (instead of requiring
a certain rate of speed and bodily injury or private property damage).
Removes a provision that provides that any person convicted for the
aggravated offense is guilty of a Class 4 felony if the flight or
attempt to elude causes bodily injury to any individual. Amends the
Criminal Code of 1961 to provide that the vehicle used in the
aggravated offense is subject to seizure and forfeiture. Effective
SB233 would increase the prison population by 23 inmates at a
cost of $4,706,100 over ten years.
