Citation
Case Number: 
2013 IL 114054
Decision Date: 
February 22, 2013
District: 
4th Dist.
Division/County: 
Livingston Co.
Justice: 
THOMAS
Holding: 
Appellate court affirmed.
Court complied with statutory time period of holding hearing on Defendant's ability to pay a public defender fee within 90 days of entry of final order. Trial court's three questions about Defendant's employment status were insufficient to satisfy statutory requirements for hearing, and thus appellate court properly remanded cause for new hearing. (KILBRIDE, FREEMAN, GARMAN, KARMEIER, BURKE, and THEIS, concurring.)
