(725 ILCS 5/124B-610)
Sec. 124B-610. Computer used in commission of felony; forfeiture. If a person commits a felony under any provision of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012 or another statute and the instrumentality used in the commission of the offense, or in connection with or in furtherance of a scheme or design to commit the offense, is a computer owned by the defendant (or, if the defendant is a minor, owned by the minor's parent or legal guardian), the computer is subject to forfeiture under this Article. A computer, or any part of a computer, is not subject to forfeiture under this Article, however, under either of the following circumstances:
(1) The computer accessed in the commission of the
offense was owned or leased by the victim or an innocent third party at the time the offense was committed.
(2) The rights of a creditor, lienholder, or person
having a security interest in the computer at the time the offense was committed will be adversely affected.
