Thursday, July 18, 2023, the Illinois Supreme Court released its decision in the case of Rowe v. Raoul, 2023 IL 129248, wherein the Court reversed the trial court’s judgment declaring the abolition of case bail in Illinois unconstitutional.
In that decision, the Court set the effective date of the now approved abolition of cash bail and all of the provisions that go with it of Monday, September 18, 2023. The Court declared: Sixty days after the filing of this opinion, on September 18, 2023, this court’s stay of pretrial release provisions in Public Acts 101-652 and 102-1104 shall be vacated. On that date, the circuit courts are directed to conduct hearings consistent with Public Acts 101-652 and 102-1104, and Illinois Supreme Court Rules implementing those pretrial release provisions shall become effective. See 5 ILCS 70/1.11.
