Sexual Assault Charges Defense in Markham, Chicago, Bridgeview and Joliet, IL
Sexual assault charges are serious in Illinois. An arrest for sexual assault alone is damaging enough; a conviction is devastating. A sexual assault conviction can be a…
- Class 1 felony – A conviction will mean between 4 and 15 years in prison
- Class X felony – A conviction will result in six years to life, depending on the circumstances
For instance, if the sexual assault charge is for a second offense and there is a previous conviction, a new conviction will result in 30-60 years’ incarceration. If the sexual assault charges were aggravated, meaning there was a weapon used, threats of death made, or the victim is mentally retarded or under eight-years of age, life in prison could well be the penalty.
In addition, anyone convicted of sexual assault in Illinois will, upon release face many restrictive conditions. One such is being a registered sex offender.
Never Answer Questions by the Authorities Without Your Lawyer Present.
At some point during your processing, the authorities will collect basic identifying information such as name, date of birth, Driver’s License or State ID number, and address. They will also attempt to “give you an opportunity to clear things up” or something to that effect. Do not answer their questions no matter how much it seems they want to help. They do not. That is not their job.
