HB5922 EnrolledLRB098 20301 MRW 55738 b
AN ACT concerning criminal law.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The Criminal Code of 2012 is amended by changing
Section 21-5 as follows:
(720 ILCS 5/21-5) (from Ch. 38, par. 21-5)
Sec. 21-5. Criminal Trespass to State Supported Land.
(a) A person commits criminal trespass to State supported
land when he or she enters upon land supported in whole or in
part with State funds, or federal funds administered or granted
through State agencies or any building on the land, after
receiving, prior to the entry, notice from the State or its
representative that the entry is forbidden, or remains upon the
land or in the building after receiving notice from the State
or its representative to depart, and who thereby interferes
with another person's lawful use or enjoyment of the building
or land.
A person has received notice from the State within the
meaning of this subsection if he or she has been notified
personally, either orally or in writing, or if a printed or
written notice forbidding entry to him or her or a group of
which he or she is a part, has been conspicuously posted or
exhibited at the main entrance to the land or the forbidden
part thereof.
(a-5) A person commits criminal trespass to State supported
land when he or she enters upon a right of way, including
facilities and improvements thereon, owned, leased, or
otherwise used by a public body or district organized under the
Metropolitan Transit Authority Act, the Local Mass Transit
District Act, or the Regional Transportation Authority Act,
after receiving, prior to the entry, notice from the public
body or district, or its representative, that the entry is
forbidden, or the person remains upon the right of way after
receiving notice from the public body or district, or its
representative, to depart, and in either of these instances
intends to compromise public safety by causing a delay in
transit service lasting more than 15 minutes or destroying
property.
A person has received notice from the public body or
district within the meaning of this subsection if he or she has
been notified personally, either orally or in writing, or if a
printed or written notice forbidding entry to him or her has
been conspicuously posted or exhibited at any point of entrance
to the right of way or the forbidden part of the right of way.
As used in this subsection (a-5), "right of way" has the
meaning ascribed to it in Section 18c-7502 of the Illinois
Vehicle Code.
(b) A person commits criminal trespass to State supported
land when he or she enters upon land supported in whole or in
part with State funds, or federal funds administered or granted
through State agencies or any building on the land by
presenting false documents or falsely representing his or her
identity orally to the State or its representative in order to
obtain permission from the State or its representative to enter
the building or land; or remains upon the land or in the
building by presenting false documents or falsely representing
his or her identity orally to the State or its representative
in order to remain upon the land or in the building, and who
thereby interferes with another person's lawful use or
enjoyment of the building or land.
This subsection does not apply to a peace officer or other
official of a unit of government who enters upon land supported
in whole or in part with State funds, or federal funds
administered or granted through State agencies or any building
on the land in the performance of his or her official duties.
(c) Sentence. Criminal trespass to State supported land is
a Class A misdemeanor, except a violation of subsection (a-5)
of this Section is a Class A misdemeanor for a first violation
and a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent violation.
