Rape and Sex Offenses

Next to murder, rape and sex crimes are the most serious offenses and the penalties are the most severe. Illinois has integrated sex crimes statute which covers crimes ranging from solicitation and prostitution through aggravated criminal sexual assault. The sex crimes statute is very complex and there are many aggravating and mitigating factors to be considered in every case. A conviction of a sex offense can be as serious as a conviction for murder because Illinois has a sexually dangerous person law that can keep a sex offender jailed for life in the case of a violent or repeat sex offender.
