    AN ACT concerning criminal law.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 is
amended by changing Section 115-17 as follows:
    (725 ILCS 5/115-17)
    Sec. 115-17. Clerk; issuance of subpoenas. It is the duty
of the clerk of the court to issue subpoenas, either on the
part of the people or of the accused, directed to the sheriff
or coroner of any county of this State. An attorney admitted to
practice in the State of Illinois, as an officer of the court,
may also issue subpoenas in a pending action. A witness who is
duly subpoenaed who neglects or refuses to attend any court,
under the requisitions of the subpoena, shall be proceeded
against and punished for contempt of the court. Attachments
against witnesses who live in a different county from that
where the subpoena is returnable may be served in the same
manner as warrants are directed to be served out of the county
from which they issue.
