Chicago Sex Crimes Defense Attorney
In Illinois we no longer refer to Sexual Assaults as Rape, but we call the crime Criminal Sexual Assault, or Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault, or in some instances Criminal Sexual Abuse. The designation and class of the felony will depend on many different elements; the age of the victim, whether there are allegations of force the age of the accused, as well as the possible relationship between the victim and the accused. All of these crimes are serious felonies and should be treated as such. A conviction leads to not only a potential penitentiary sentence, but the accused will be required to register as a sex offender.

The Sex Offender Registration Act requires anyone convicted of a sex crime to register every year for either 5 years, 10 years or in certain cases for life. There are also rules regarding where the individual can reside, with whom he can reside, the types of employment he can seek, just to name a few.
