Felony Override & Database

Abstract

Amends the Counties Code. Provides that, in a criminal investigation in counties in excess of 3,000,000 involving a forcible felony where the State's Attorney or an Assistant State's Attorney rejects the filing of a felony charge or charges or the case is designated by the State's Attorney or Assistant State's Attorney as a continuing investigation: (1) a law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where the alleged crime occurred may override the State's Attorney or Assistant State's Attorney's rejection of the felony charge or charges or the case is designated by the State's Attorney or Assistant State's Attorney as a continuing investigation if the evidence supporting the charge is clear and convincing and the override is filed with the clerk of the circuit court and the State's Attorney; and (2) the State's Attorney or Assistant State's Attorney may rescind the override within 7 days after the override by petitioning the Chief Judge of the Criminal Division of the circuit court. Provides for petition requirements. Provides that, if the court determines that law enforcement agency's decision to override was based on clear and convincing evidence, the State's Attorney must proceed with a preliminary examination or seek an indictment by grand jury within 30 days from the date he or she was taken into custody or, if he or she is not in custody, 60 days from the date he or she was arrested. Provides that the decision of the court on the law enforcement agency's override is not appealable. Requires all State's Attorney Offices to collect and maintain data in a public database on all felony cases called in for review by law enforcement and specifies how the data shall be collected and disclosed. Requires notification of a victim or victim's family of rejection of a felony case.
