CRIM PRO-INTERROGATIONS                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Provides  that  an      
   oral,  written,  or  sign language statement of a defendant, made as a      
   result of a custodial interrogation conducted at a police  station  or      
   other  place  of  detention  on  or  after  the effective date of this      
   amendatory Act is inadmissible as evidence against  the  defendant  in      
   any capital trial, unless: (1) an electronic video and audio recording      
   is  made  of  the  custodial  interrogation;  (2) before the custodial      
   interrogation but during the recording, the defendant is given certain      
   warnings of his or her rights; (3) that prior  to  the  statement  but      
   during  the  recording,  the  defendant  waives  these rights; (4) the      
   recording is accurate and has not been altered; (5) all voices on  the      
   recording are identifiable; and (6) not later than the 20th day before      
   the  date  of  any criminal proceeding at which the statement is to be      
   admitted as evidence against the defendant, the attorney  representing      
   the  defendant  is  permitted to review a true, complete, and accurate      
   copy of all recordings of the defendant made under this Section.            
          FISCAL NOTE (Illinois State Police)                                  
          If HB 6051 were to become law there would be a fiscal impact on      
          the Illinois State Police (ISP) of approximately $950,000            
          relating to equipment acquisition. Furthermore, ISP would            
          incur an undetermined additional amount related to capital           
          expenditures which would be necessary to modify existing             
          structures to comply with the Act, as well as undefined costs        
          associated with officer training.                                    
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Office of Illinois Courts)                            
          It is not anticipated that the bill would increase the number        
          of judges needed in the State.
