Guide to Sentencing Hearings and Pretrial Release in Illinois: 2023

Fully updated for 2023 with all the changes from the SAFE-T Act, including an expanded section on the new pretrial release provisions.

This essential guide for criminal defense attorneys, prosecutors, and judges condenses everything you need to know before appearing at a sentencing or pretrial release hearing. The book has been fully updated to include changes made by the SAFE-T Act, including changes to youthful offender sentencing in criminal court and the new pretrial release provisions that took effect on Sept. 18, 2023, with the abolition of cash bail. It includes a comprehensive sentencing guide and a detailed listing of the most common felony offenses, which provides statutory citations, offense classes, and relevant notes. The sentencing guide covers a wide array of topics such as firearm enhancements, extended term sentences, non-probationable cases, mandatory Class X, consecutive sentencing, merger, juvenile sentencing, and truth in sentencing. The book still includes its original bond hearing guide, which covers mandatory no bail, discretionary no bond, violations of bail bond, violations of probation, and convicted defendants. Relevant case law, statutes, notes, examples, and practice tips are provided throughout.

This must-have book is authored by Darren O’Brien who is now in private practice after a 30-year career at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted thousands of defendants and tried hundreds of cases.
