Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.
705 ILCS 135/5-10
(705 ILCS 135/5-10)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
(a) In each case, the court shall order an assessment at the time of sentencing, as set forth in this Act, for a defendant to pay in addition to any fine, restitution, or forfeiture ordered by the court when the defendant is convicted of, pleads guilty to, or is placed on court supervision for a violation of a statute of this State or a similar local ordinance. The court may order a fine, restitution, or forfeiture on any violation that is being sentenced but shall order only one assessment from the Schedule of Assessments 1 through 13 of this Act for all sentenced violations in a case, that being the schedule applicable to the highest classified offense violation that is being sentenced, plus any conditional assessments under Section 15-70 of this Act applicable to any sentenced violation in the case.
(b) If the court finds that the schedule of assessments will cause an undue burden on any victim in a case or if the court orders community service or some other punishment in place of the applicable schedule of assessments, the court may reduce the amount set forth in the applicable schedule of assessments or not order the applicable schedule of assessments. If the court reduces the amount set forth in the applicable schedule of assessments, then all recipients of the funds collected will receive a prorated amount to reflect the reduction.
(c) The court may order the assessments to be paid forthwith or within a specified period of time or in installments.
(c-3) Excluding any ordered conditional assessment, if
the assessment is not paid within the period of probation, conditional
discharge, or supervision to which the defendant was originally sentenced,
the court may extend the period of probation, conditional discharge, or
supervision under Section 5-6-2 or 5-6-3.1 of the Unified Code of
Corrections, as applicable, until the assessment is paid or until
successful completion of public or community service set forth in
subsection (b) of Section 5-20 of this Act or the successful completion of the substance abuse
intervention or treatment program set forth in subsection (c-5) of this Section.
(c-5) Excluding any ordered conditional assessment, the court may suspend the collection of the assessment; provided, the defendant agrees to enter a substance
abuse intervention or treatment program approved by the court; and further
provided that the defendant agrees to pay for all or some portion of the
costs associated with the intervention or treatment program. In this case,
the collection of the assessment shall be
suspended during the defendant's participation in the approved
intervention or treatment program. Upon successful
completion of the program, the defendant may apply to the court to reduce
the assessment imposed under this Section by any amount actually paid
by the defendant for his or her participation in the program. The court shall not
reduce the assessment under this subsection unless the defendant
establishes to the satisfaction of the court that he or she has successfully
completed the intervention or treatment program. If the defendant's
participation is for any reason terminated before his or her successful completion
of the intervention or treatment program, collection of the entire
assessment imposed under this Act shall be enforced. Nothing in this
Section shall be deemed to affect or suspend any other fines, restitution
costs, forfeitures, or assessments imposed under this or any other Act.
(d) Except as provided in Section 5-15 of this Act, the defendant shall pay to the clerk of the court and the clerk shall remit the assessment to the appropriate entity as set forth in the ordered schedule of assessments within one month of its receipt.
(e) Unless a court ordered payment schedule is implemented or the assessment
requirements of this Act are waived under a court order, the clerk of
the circuit court may add to any unpaid assessments under this Act a delinquency
amount equal to 5% of the unpaid assessments that remain unpaid after 30 days, 10% of
the unpaid assessments that remain unpaid after 60 days, and 15% of the unpaid assessments
that remain unpaid after 90 days. Notice to those parties may be made by
signage posting or publication. The additional delinquency amounts collected under this Section shall
be deposited into the Circuit Clerk Operations and Administration Fund and used to defray additional administrative costs incurred by the clerk of the
circuit court in collecting unpaid assessments.
