    Sec. 111-4. Joinder of offenses and defendants.
    (a) Two or more offenses may be charged in the same
indictment, information or complaint in a separate count for
each offense if the offenses charged, whether felonies or
misdemeanors or both, are based on the same act or on 2 or more
acts which are part of the same comprehensive transaction.
    (b) Two or more defendants may be charged in the same
indictment, information or complaint if they are alleged to
have participated in the same act or in the same comprehensive
transaction out of which the offense or offenses arose. Such
defendants may be charged in one or more counts together or
separately and all of the defendants need not be charged in
each count.
    (c) Two or more acts or transactions in violation of any
provision or provisions of Sections 8A-2, 8A-3, 8A-4, 8A-4A and

the Criminal Code of 1961 and Section 118 of Division I of the
Criminal Jurisprudence Act, may be charged as a single offense
in a single count of the same indictment, information or
complaint, if such acts or transactions by one or more
defendants are in furtherance of a single intention and design
or if the property, labor or services obtained are of the same
person or are of several persons having a common interest in
such property, labor or services. In such a charge, the period
between the dates of the first and the final such acts or
transactions may be alleged as the date of the offense and, if
any such act or transaction by any defendant was committed in
the county where the prosecution was commenced, such county may
be alleged as the county of the offense.
