similar statute of another state, tribe or United States
territory, or otherwise has acquired actual knowledge of the

protection; unless the court explicitly finds that an increased
penalty or such period of imprisonment would be manifestly
unjust. In addition to any other penalties, the court may order
the defendant to pay a fine as authorized under Section 5-9-1 of
the Unified Code of Corrections or to make restitution to the
victim under Section 5-5-6 of the Unified Code of Corrections.
