Need help finding the area of Illinois law that deals with Probation

Asked over 1 year ago - Havana, IL

I went to this website but I don't know where to go from there. Do the laws regarding probation very with the offense? I was convicted of Aggravated Battery and Unlawful Use of a Weapon and sentenced to two years of Probation to run concurrent. I want to know what part of the law defines a willing or unwilling violation of probation and on what grounds can the probation be revoked. If you could point me to the right area within that site I would be grateful. Thanks in advance.

Additional information

I think I found it
chapter 38 paragraph 1005-6-4 section 5-6-4
subsection C and D
(c) The State has the burden of going forward with
the evidence and proving the violation by the
preponderance of the evidence. The evidence shall be
presented in open court with the right of
confrontation, cross-examination, and representation
by counsel.
(d) Probation, conditional discharge, periodic
imprisonment and supervision shall not be revoked
for failure to comply with conditions of a sentence
or supervision, which imposes financial obligations
upon the offender unless such failure is due to his
willful refusal to pay.
