Short description: 
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.
