Springfield, IL Sex Crime Attorney

Types of Sex Crimes in Illinois

Sex offenses are some of the worst crimes that a person can commit. When someone commits a sex crime, victims are violated on the most personal level. Such serious crimes can only be penalized with some of the harshest sentencing in the state. In Illinois, sex offenses range from misdemeanors to felonies depending on the offense.

Lesser sex offenses include:

  • Public indecency
  • Solicitation of a prostitute
  • Prostitution itself

Misdemeanor sex offenses incur up to $2,500 in fines and a jail sentence of up to one year. Most sex offenses are felonies, however, and result in much more severe penalties.

What are the Penalties for Sex Crimes?

Criminal sexual assault, also known as "rape," is one of the most serious sex crimes under the Illinois Compiled Statutes. Criminal sexual assault is a Class 1 felony that can land you in prison for up to 15 years.

Aggravated criminal assault, which involves a dangerous weapon, bodily harm to the victim, or other aggravating factors, is a Class X felony that can land you in prison for up to 30 years. Certain aggravating factors can add on another 10, 15, 20, or 25 years, or result in a life sentence.

Sex Offender Registration in Springfield, IL

Sex crimes are different than any other crime in that they result in lifetime sex offender registration along with criminal sentencing and fines. Sex offenders must provide their personal information to be made available for public viewing in an online database. This allows others to know where convicted sex offenders live at all times.

Sex offenders are also restricted from living within a certain distance of a school, playground, or other area where children regularly congregate. This makes it difficult to find a place to live after being convicted of a sex crime. Employers are also hesitant to hire individuals with a sex offense on their criminal record, making it difficult to succeed in a career.
