Sex Crimes

Will County Sex Crime Defense Lawyer

Under Illinois criminal law, a sexual offense is defined as some type of sexual conduct occurring without consent. Some individuals are unable to consent, for example due to their age, or a developmental disability. Some examples of sex offenses in Illinois include:

  • Criminal Sexual Assault
  • Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child
  • Criminal Sexual Abuse
  • Indecent Solicitation
  • Public Indecency
  • Sexual Exploitation of a Child
  • Prostitution and Pimping
  • Child Pornography

Penalties for Sex Offenses in Illinois

Many sex crimes are felony offenses in Illinois, and those convicted of these felony sex crimes can be sentenced to years behind bars. The exact charge, as well as the sentence, depends on numerous factors, including:

  • The amount of force used in committing the sexual act
  • The nature of the sexual conduct
  • The victim’s age
  • Any prior convictions for sex crimes

Illinois Registered Sex Offender Requirements

Being charged – and sometimes just accused – of a sex offense carries a great stigma in today’s society. In addition, Illinois requires those convicted of many sex crimes to register as a “sex offender,” and any member of the general public can easily search for registered sex offenders in Illinois.

This means that should you be convicted of a sex-related crime in Illinois, a simple Internet search will reveal this to family members, friends, potential employers, and anyone else who cares to look, for at least ten years.
