BOND CONDITION-DOMESTIC BATT
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Provides that,
for defendants arrested on domestic battery charges, the circuit court
must require a defendant to refrain from using alcohol or illegal
drugs and to undergo domestic violence counseling as conditions of
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Further amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Deletes
language requiring, as a condition of bond for a criminal charge where
the victim is a family or household member of the defendant, that the
defendant refrain from using alcohol or any illegal drug. Requires
instead that the defendant be ordered to undergo a professional
examination to determine if an alcohol, drug, or intoxicating compound
abuse problem exists and the extent of the problem.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.
Further amends the Code of Criminal Procedure concerning
conditions of bond. Deletes a provision requiring the court to impose
as a condition of bond the requirement that the defendant undergo
domestic violence counseling. Requires the court, instead, to
require the defendant to undergo a domestic violence assessment by a
program on the Illinois Department of Human Services' protocol list
for perpetrator treatment programs. Provides that this assessment
shall be separate from any substance abuse assessment or evaluation
that may be required. Also provides that the cost of the domestic
violence assessment shall be paid by the defendant and requires the
defendant to sign a release allowing the results of the assessment to
be sent to the court file, to remain sealed until after he or she is
found guilty of a violation.
