Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Counties Code. Provides in a county with a service-intensive probation program, such as pre-trial, DUI court, veteran's court, drug court, mental health court, or domestic violence court, the county may adopt a $25 fee to be paid by a defendant convicted of an offense. Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, when the offender is to be sentenced for a non-violent non-probationable offense, the court may sentence the offender to a term of imprisonment in the Department of Corrections or county jail in combination with a consecutive term of service-intensive probation if the court makes certain findings. If the court elects to sentence an offender to a combination sentence, the court must order the defendant to complete any indicated treatment for substance abuse or mental illness in an outpatient, inpatient, residential, or jail-based custodial treatment program, and include a regimen of graduated requirements and rewards and sanctions, including but not limited to: fines, fees, costs, restitution, additional incarceration, individual and group therapy, drug testing, close monitoring by the court and supervision of progress, educational or vocational counseling as appropriate, and other requirements necessary to fulfill the sentence. Provides that the court may structure its sentence without regard to mandatory minimum imprisonment requirements if the combination of imprisonment and the term of probation equals or exceeds the minimum sentence for the offense.
