Case Number: 
2012 IL App (4th) 110297
Decision Date: 
October 22, 2012
District: 
4th Dist
Division/County: 
Schuyler Co.
Justice: 
COOK
Holding: 
Affirmed as modified; remanded.
Defendant, after being convicted of DUI and other traffic violations, was sentenced in absentia to jail and ordered to pay $172.60 for emergency response restitution. Scope of statute does not permit restitution merely for traffic stop enforcing the violation of Section 11-501 of Traffic Code. The costs of enforcing DUI violation are internalized through other imposed fines, fees, and costs from conviction. The external costs of emergency response, otherwise borne by the public, would not be internalized but for Section 501.01 of the Code. (TURNER and STEIGMANN, concurring.)
