CLE: Illinois Sentencing – Statutory and Case Law
Are you a general practitioner or criminal law attorney with intermediate practice experience? Then you won’t want to miss this informative seminar in Bloomington on January 25, which offers an in-depth overview of Illinois sentencing – from preparing for the hearing and pleas of guilty, to mandatory sentences and additional financial assessments. Attorneys attending this program will better understand: the statutory and non-statutory factors in aggravation; the collateral consequences of guilty pleas, including immigration status, and the 6th amendment ineffective assistance of counsel issues identified in several recent U.S. Supreme Court Cases; the differing good-time credit of various offenses; recognizing the various fees and fines that impact the defendant at sentencing; how to search the Illinois Criminal Code to pull up specific statutes using the ICJIA database; issues in sex offender sentencing, including registration requirements and social limitations/restrictions on the sex offender; and the new Evidence Based Sentencing in DUI cases and the 2012 DE Evaluation format.
The program is presented by the ISBA Criminal Justice Section and qualifies for 6.0 hours MCLE credit.
