A new Illinois law will make it harder for fugitives to hide from police.
The new measure closes the loophole that exempts relatives from punishment if they aid a wanted family member.
Under the new law, family members will face felony charges if they help a fugitive avoid capture.
If convicted, they could receive up to three years in jail and a $25,000 fine.
The law goes into effect January 1st.
Fourteen states have similar laws.
