Illinois Compiled Statutes 725 ILCS 5 Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Section 124B-400

    (725 ILCS 5/124B-400)

    Sec. 124B-400. Legislative declaration. Obscenity is a far-reaching and extremely profitable crime. This crime persists despite the threat of prosecution and successful prosecution because existing sanctions do not effectively reach the money and other assets generated by it. It is therefore necessary to supplement existing sanctions by mandating forfeiture of money and other assets generated by this crime. Forfeiture diminishes the financial incentives that encourage and sustain obscenity and secures for the State, local government, and prosecutors a resource for prosecuting these crimes.
