Conviction of a sex crime in Illinois carries penalties that can have devastating impacts on the person's life. Most sex offenses are felonies, so the the risk of prison time is real and significant.
In Illinois, criminal sexual assault is non-probationable. That means, if convicted, you will be sentenced to a minimum of four to 15 years in prison for a first offense. Depending on your record and the circumstances of the alleged assault, you could face as much as 60 years, or even life, in prison.
All convicted Illinois sex offenders, regardless of the offense, are required to register as sex offenders, and this can prevent you from living where you want, can stop you from holding jobs you’re otherwise qualified for, and will taint your relationships with people you meet. The sex offender registry is public information that anyone can access. If you're convicted, a cloud of judgment hangs over your head forever.
