Senator Mike Jacobs (D-Moline) has passed legislation which will increase the penalties for the assault of a process server.
"Those who work with law enforcement and the courts can become targets for assault by those they are serving documents to," stated Senator Jacobs. "We have increased the assault penalties over the years for those people who work on behalf of the State Government and law enforcement, and this legislation will extend these protections for those who work on behalf of the courts."
