No Jail For These Violent Crimes Starting Jan 1st.
On January 1st 2023 in Illinois

The (SAFE-T Act) Will restrict which crimes a person can be arrested for, and would free those in custody for:

  • Second-degree murder
  • Aggravated battery
  • Arson
  • Drug-induced homicide
  • Kidnapping
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated DUI

    (This has already PASSED)

This bill does address some good things:

Reform of prisoners rights

Law enforcement body camera requirements

Use of personal cell phone when being detained

Sometimes laws aren't ready for prime time.

This is one of them.

The vote in the Illinois House for House Bill 3653 saw 60 in favor, 50 opposed, and three not voting.
